Our friends at Callaway continue to amaze us with the number of projects they have going. After announcing their C7 Aerowagon Shooting Brake and the 570 hp Callaway SS Sedan were greenlighted for 2014, the project we really wanted to know about – the C7 Callaway Corvette – can now be ordered from Callaway dealers.
For over 25 years, the engineers at Callaway have produced high performance versions of the Corvette. And now with the C7 Corvette, Chevrolet’s most sophisticated, featured-packed Corvette to date, Callaway will build upon that experience to create the all new Callaway Corvette SC610 for 2014.
The 2014 Callaway Corvette is expected to produce 610 horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque. That power comes from the addition of an Eaton TVS four-lobe high helix rotor supercharger. New for the C7, Callaway’s engineers have completely redesigned the supercharger’s housing and manifold for improved airflow and the new intercooler configuration reduces charge air temperatures. The new supercharger design extends through the hood and is framed by a Callaway carbon hood surround panel and integrated underhood extractor.
Standard equipment includes the Eaton TVS supercharger, Callaway’s honker high flow intake and the carbon hood surround/extractor with “Supercharged” emblems. Callaway also brings back their Double-D stainless steel exhaust system.
The final touches on the Callaway Corvette include exterior badging, door sill panels, floor mats, dash plaque and an underhood plaque with the VIN.
The Callaway Corvette’s standard SC610 Package is priced at $22,995.

The Callaway Corvette is assembled to precise engineering specifications by their expert technicians and that’s how they are able to provide a three year/36,000 mile limited warranty as well as an optional 5 year/100,000 extended powertrain service contract.
These are the pre-production performance estimates for the 2014 Callaway Corvette:
- Horsepower: 610 bhp @ 6400 rpm (SAE)
- Torque: 556 lb-ft @ 4500 rpm (SAE)
- 0-60 mph: 3.4 sec
- 1/4 mi ET/Speed: 11.0 sec @ 125 mph
- Max Lateral Acceleration: 1.05g
