What started as a “What if?” idea; turbocharging a BMW 320i some 41 years ago, has turned in to a legacy of performance cars that include Alfa Romeo and Chevrolet’s Corvette. It was that Alfa Romeo that caught the eye of GM engineers. After all, when a 2.5L, Callaway modified Alfa Romeo can outrun a Corvette, you have to do something! Chief Corvette Engineer, Dave McClelland approached Callaway to do the same for the legendary GM Marque.
In 1989, Callaway brought a modified 1989 Corvette (Nicknamed: Project Sledgehammer) to the Ohio Transportation Center, Test Track. Then proceeded to blister the track with a top speed of 254 mph (driven by the late, John Lingenfelter)! The cost to produce the car exceeded $1,000,000! The car couldn’t ever be run at its true speed potential, and was essentially a one-off custom build for a magazine event.
All of this R&D over the years has culminated in the latest iteration of the Callaway Corvette. The Chevrolet 6.2L V8 has been pushed to the limits with a Callaway prepared supercharger pushing 757 horsepower @6500rpm and 777 lb-ft. Torque @4500rpm. The Callaway legacy will live on for another millennia!
