2014 marks the 25th anniversary of Callaway Cars building and engineering Corvettes. These aftermarket versions of the two-seater Chevy are not tuners with bolt-ons, they’re completely redesigned vehicles built for performance. Every serialized Callaway Corvette has been tested for perfection before it’s sold. This year, to properly honor the all-new redesigned generation C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Callaway will offer its most powerful Vette ever: The 2014 Callaway Corvette SC610. The vehicle will include Callaway’s upgraded aerodynamics, a significant power-adder, and full suspension upgrades.
Chevrolet recently blew the world away, walking away with both the North American Car and Truck of the Year Awards in Detroit earlier this month. The American auto manufacturer’s then announced a race car version of 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, the C7.R. All this adds-up to one phenomenal platform for Reeves Callaway and crew of master engineers to build upon. A lot of the tough work has been done from the factory, but Callaway Cars has always found room to squeeze more power and more downforce wherever possible.
The 2014 Callaway Corvette SC610 will see an improvement over the predecessor C6 with an array of improvements, including an all-new Callaway-modified LT1. Up top, an Eaton TVS (Twin Vortices Series), four-lobe supercharger will bring positive manifold pressure that increases the engine to 610 hp with 556 lb-ft of torque. With an active fuel management, the Eaton TVS will utilize Callaway’s new supercharger housing and manifold for improved airflow that helps to reduce the charged air’s temperature. The best part, fuel economy is practically unchanged from stock. As an added bonus, the supercharger design extends through the hood, framed by a Callaway Carbon hood surround panel for all to see.
For those looking to take their SC610 ever further, a list of performance upgrades are available for the already upgraded Callaway Corvette. The first option available is the Callaway AeroWagon, which we recently told you about; it offers a replacement rear window, giving the Corvette an incredibly modern shooting-brake package. Other additions that can be purchased include Callaway nine-spoke wheels wrapped in Michelin tires; custom-built Callaway coil-overs with double adjustable dampers; an in-house built short throw shifter; Le Mans GT brake upgrade; unique sport interior; carbon exterior panels, front and rear splitter, rear spoiler, and rockers for a lighter, more aerodynamic vehicle.
The Callaway Corvette SC610 will be no slouch, putting down expected 0-60 mph times of 3.4 seconds, and 1/4 mi time of 11.0 seconds at 125 mph. Customers can purchase the SC610 with a guaranteed standard warranty that includes 3 years/36,000 miles. And optional 5 year/100,000 mile extended contract is also available for purchase.
