One of the coolest C4 Corvettes you’ll ever find just sold at RK Motors out of Charlotte, N.C.
This Arctic White 1996 Corvette convertible originally had an MSRP of $49,689, but after significant Callaway upgrades of $67,703.60, it wound up at $117,382.60 – quite a chunk of change today, let alone the mid-’90s!
But this Callaway GS Supernatural is worth every penny with its major upgrades, not the least of which is under that magnificent clamsheel hood – an LT4 engine that was simply bored, stroked, and rebuilt to create a whopping 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Other performance features include a ZF 6-speed manual transmission, limited-slip differential with 3.45 gears, power rack-and-pinion steering, 4-wheel power disc brakes, Callaway suspension upgrades, and Callaway SuperNatural exhaust.
But what really sold us on this car is its appearance. It’s definitely one of the most beautiful C4s we’ve ever seen, with the Arctic White paint and black Grand Sport full-length stripe, accented with red hash marks. The car features the Callaway Aero Body nose-clip, Grand Sport branded front and rear fenders vented in traditional Callaway Aero Body fashion, polished door handles, massaged rockers, and a Callaway rear treatment with flush taillights and a Callaway-branded fuel door between traditional Callaway quarter louvers.
The beautiful interior has also been significantly upgraded at a cost of more than $15,000 by AutoMat out of Hicksville, N.Y., including six-way power bucket seats of Connolly Leather and Alcantara Ultrasuede, Ultrasuede dash, custom side panels, a roll bar, and Callaway-installed accessory gauges.
On the RK Motors listing, the car is said to have covered just 10,418 miles and looks to be in immaculate, like-new condition throughout. Included with the sale was loads of documentation since new, including photos taken during the transformation as well as receipts from Callaway, AutoMat, and Kerbeck Chevrolet, where the stock version was originally sold before the conversions were made. You can also see the car prominently featured in magazines, including Vette and Corvette Fever.
We don’t know how much this one ended up selling for, but it’s definitely one of the nicest C4s in existence. What’s your opinion of this one-of-a-kind Callaway GS SuperNatural?
