In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Callaway Cars has announced that the famous RPO B2K option package will return to a limited number 2012 Corvettes. The popular option package first appeared in 1987 and, when selected, force-fed the stock Corvette L98 through a pair of intercooled turbos. Since that time, the Callaway Twin-Turbo Corvettes have grown in popularity amongst enthusiasts and collectors.
