Thirty years ago, Callaway Cars became the first third-party company to have an official RPO code on a production Corvette. That code was B2K, an option which outfitted fully assembled Corvettes with twin turbos.
Today, Callaway Cars is one of the most respected automotive engineering companies in the world and so it only makes sense to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Callaway Cars and the 30 years that Callaway has pushed the design and engineering limits with its brand of specially produced Corvettes.
The National Corvette Museum has just opened a new exhibit dedicated to Callaway and some of the biggest names in Callaway’s rich history are now on display.
Included are the very first Callaway B2K Corvette (#1987-001), significant milestone models, including the 1988 Callaway Sledgehammer, Series I and Series II Speedsters, LM-bodied variants, Development cars, Callaway C12 and C16 models, Supercharged C6 and C7 powerhouses, including the latest from Callaway – the Callaway SC757 Corvette Z06.
