Corvettes for Sale: 2008 Callaway C16 on Bring a Trailer


Get your clicking finger ready! Now through Tuesday, perspective owners have the chance to bid on one of the 15 Callaway C16s in existence. Hosted by auction site, Bring a Trailer, this highly-specialized 2008 Corvette is something to behold.

The headline with any of Callaway’s numbered cars is the custom bodywork. In the case of the C16, that means a clean-sheet redesign that only shares its roof, glass, decklid, and mirrors with the sixth-generation Corvette on which it is based. With Callaway’s signature “Double D” exhaust, half the usual number of round tail lights, and a pair of flying buttresses, this bespoke creation looks best from behind. And, with a supercharger tuned by the best in the business bolted to its first-year LS3, good for 650 horsepower, that striking posterior will be a familiar site for onlookers.

Other niceties in the $95,725 C16 upgrade (on top of the $57,345 MSRP of the 3LT donor ‘Vette) include Dymag carbon-magnesium wheels (20 inches in back and 19 out front), a Callaway-Eibach Multi-Pro suspension system, and Le Mans brakes. Inside you’ll find a supple mix of leather and Alcantara with red contrast stitching. It also features the Corvette’s optional six-speed automatic transmission that Callaway reinforced to handle the extra torque.

  1. Did I read that right? $95K for the upgrade 13 years ago? Bet the original purchaser was real unhappy the following year when the ZR1 came out that was faster for less money.

  2. Think most of you are missing the point for this car. This is for the collector who already has a ZR1 or wants something unique. Most of the original Callaway Speedster, C12 and C16 owners were the who’s who of collectors and businessman…. Ken Lingenfelter, Tommy Mattola, James Cameron, etc.
