Earlier this year Callaway Cars announced the shooting brake concept of the 2014 Corvette Stingray and said if there was enough demand for the concept then it would be built. Last month at Corvettes at Carlisle, Reeves Callaway told a group of Callaway owners that the shooting brake will indeed see production.
CarBuzz.com has a little more info on the subject. They say the plan to turn the 2014 Corvette Stingray Sports Car into the C21 Aerowagon will come from the addition of a new carbon-fiber based rear hatch using a lightweight resin transfer molding process that will give the Callaways that oh-so-awesome wagon look.
The package also includes enhancing the Stingray’s LT1 V8, the addition of larger rear wheels and Callaway branding. The Aerowagon is expected to have a top speed in excess of 200 mph.
At first Callaway pegged the cost of the tranformation at $15,000 but since then it has risen to $22,995, not including the cost of the car itself. That could push the cost of the car to over $75,000 depending on options and packages.
We don’t have a date yet on expected availability but we’ll announce it as soon as its known. In addition to the Callaway Aerowagon, the tuner is also working on a supercharged version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray which should deliver around 600 horsepower.
On a related note, the Callaway Cars AeroWagonette – the solution for transporting “bothersome” kids that was the subject of an April Fool’s Joke will not be produced.
