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.
One of our favorite tuners continues to make news this year. Callaway has already announced the Corvette Aerowagon project is a go and they were the first to supercharge the Gen 5 eco-tech engine found in the new Silverado. Today, Callaway officially announced they will be offering the Callaway SS, a supercharged 570 horsepower version of the Chevy SS performance sedan.

Like some other well-known tuners and performance shops, Pfadt Race Engineering has been itching to get their hands on the new 2014 Corvette Stingray. Pfadt has big plans for the C7 Stingray with a new line of parts and a performance upgrade package they’re calling the Pfadt P58. The package is expected to boost the LT1 from 460 hp to approximately 580 hp.
But before all that can move forward, they first needed to pick up the car.
Hennessey builds some of the meanest cars under the sun and now they’ve gotten their hands on the new C7. Uh oh. It probably won’t be too long before it has seven trillion (or maybe just a thousand) horsepower. But below is video of a quarter-mile run with the C7 as it was delivered to them – bone stock.
Here’s another tuner that has recently got their hands on the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Hennessey Performance announced early on their plans to upgrade the new C7 Corvette and that process begins with doing a baseline dyno test of the car.
The new 2014 Corvette Stingrays just hit dealerships beginning last Friday and already one customer has taken his new C7 to Lingenfelter Performance Engineering for a couple of baseline runs on the dynojet.
