After RPO B2K and its twin turbos went away at the end of the 1991 model year Callaway Cars elected to go a different direction when GM introduced the LT1 engine. Callaway Corvettes built from 1992 – 1996 become known as SuperNaturals since their performance gains came from beefed-up internals rather than forced induction.
While the turbos were gone, owners could still pick from the Callaway option palette and basically produce a 1-of-1 car of their choice. Custom exterior and interior leather colors, aerobody kits, special wheels and tires, and custom exhaust could all be ordered based on the owner’s desires.
Up for sale right now on eBay is 1996 SuperNatural #001. According to the listing the car has had just 2 owners since new and currently sports just 8,357 miles on the odometer. The owner states this C4 “Drives super tight as this car enjoys all the improvements on the C4 model from 1984-1996. This car stickered brand new at almost $94,000.”
It was featured in the 1997 Chip’s Choice at Corvettes at Carlisle where they celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Callaway Corvettes.
Loaded up from the factory, the original sticker price was $51,724 which included the 330hp LT4, 6-speed manual transmission, and the FX3 adjustable suspension. From there it was off to Old Lyme, CT and $42,000 worth of Callaway love.
The car was initially born in black with the light gray interior. The Callaway team promptly changed that to a custom Bright Silver Metallic which complements the wheels. Other Callaway-installed goodies include the 450hp LT4 SuperNatural engine which dyno’d at 466hp, aerobody kit, Brembo F40 front brakes, Double D exhaust, Callaway single mass flywheel and clutch, and Bridgestone Run Flat tires.
The new owner will also receive a binder full of documentation including the window sticker, invoices, and service records in addition to the original owner’s build communication with Callaway.
The owner wraps up his listing by simply stating “This is a wonderful and very rare car and looks great at any angle.” We couldn’t agree more.
If you’d like to put this piece of Callaway history in your garage you best get to bidding now as the auction ends Tuesday May 8th at 7:43pm. As we write this blog post the bidding is currently at $25,222 with the reserve not yet met.
