Callaway Corvette’s AeroWagonette is our Favorite April Fools Joke

Callaway Corvette's AeroWagonette is our Favorite April Fools Joke

A couple weeks back, we showed you the C7-based Callaway Shooting Brake Concept called the Aerowagon and its design really turned a lot of heads. But the designers at the Old Lyme, Connecticut tuning shop weren’t finished yet with us. For April Fools Day, Callaway introduces a matching trailer called the AeroWagonette – a new take on how to transport “bothersome” kids when you only have a two-seat sports car.

The AeroWagonette is a roomy self-balancing trailer with room for up to three unruly kids. With a top speed in excess of 200 mph, Callaway founder Reeves Callaway claims a dual use for the transport. Not only does it offer parents the “appropriate amount of isolation” from their children, but for those kids that may be heading down the wrong the path in life, the AeroWagonette can also be used for interventions though its innovative “Scared Sh*tless Technique”.

Unfortunately for us, the AeroWagonette was only offered for sale on April 1, 2013 with a sale price listed at “Priceless”. Check out the official press release for additional details of Callaway’s Aerwagonette.

Official Press Release

The design department at Callaway Cars released an iteration of its recent AeroWagon Concept.

The AeroWagonette unit has been developed in response to the many requests that small children be accommodated into the AeroWagon plans. Designer Paul Deutschman responded with a unique capsule that will allow up to three children to ride along behind their parents in the appropriate amount of isolation. The experience will be particularly effective for children who tend to be bothersome or otherwise inappropriate.

Since the Callaway AeroWagon is capable of speeds in excess of 200 mph, a ‘ timeout ‘ in the AeroWagonette should prove terrifying to even the most boisterous of offspring. Callaway Cars founder, Reeves Callaway states: We have several children assigned to the testing role already. Callaway admits that the Scared Straight, or its more aggressive, Scared S**tless technique, can be very effective.

SpacEx founder Elon Musk could be engaged to supply the coupling / de-coupling strategy first used in the docking of the ISS. The AeroWagonette will be self balancing. Segway inventor Dean Kamen and Google founder Sergey Brin will be asked to meld the self-righting technology with the autonomous vehicle routines that will allow the driver to elect a Retrieve or Refuse strategy for re-docking. At the driver’s command, the unit can be de-coupled and continue unimpeded, upright, however without directional control. Also at the driver’s command will be 14 separate and remotely deployable airbags within the AeroWagonette.

Feedback regarding the AeroWagonette is being collected at callawaycars.com

Orders will be accepted only on April 1, 2013. No price will be announced as early adopters have proclaimed it “Priceless…”
