Remember the Callaway Cars concept for a C7 shooting brake that was first bandied about in 2013? The project, known as the Aerowagon, is very much a go again with the first examples expected to be ready later this year.
Although the Corvette Aerowagon was first announced in 2013 and given the green light later that year, Callaway Cars had some other projects to bang out first. Those projects included the Callaway Stingray SC627, the Callaway Z06 SC757 and the Callaway Camaro SC610. Let’s also throw in Callaway’s C7 Corvette GT3-R racing program in Europe and you can see why the tuning firm is just now taking on what is essentially a body panel switch.
And I think that is one of the selling points of the Aerowagon package is that it makes no permanent changes to the C7 Corvette Stingray or Z06 on which its installed and it can be reverted back to stock in just a matter of hours.
The Aerowagon’s rear hatch can fit all stock C7 Corvettes as well as those previously modified by Callaway. Callaway tells BoldRide that the conversion process is a one-piece carbon-fiber roof that creates a larger hatch area and better access to the contents inside. Callaway notes that there was a slight increase in aerodynamic efficiency with the Aerowagon hatch in place.
The Aerowagon conversion is expected to cost $15,000 as originally announced although there is a $1,500 upcharge for painted carbon fiber. Callaway will be performing the wagon upgrades at its locations in California and Connecticut.
