The Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R has been unveiled ahead of its debut next year in GT3 championships worldwide competition.

Not Callaway’s Santa Ana, California, location where the Callaway SC627 can be found, but the GM-authorized GT3 version for FIA developed by Callaway Competition of Leingarten, Germany. The C7 GT3-R comes after the successful Z06.R GT3, which has been racing for almost a decade.

In development for almost two years, Callaway Competition completed the first C7 GT3-R just a few weeks ago, constructed to conform to all FIA regulations.

With 50 less horsepower than the 650hp C7 Z06, the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R uses a blueprinted 6.2L V-8 engine producing 600 horsepower, mated to a paddle-shifted X-Trac six-speed sequential gearbox.

The Callaway C7 GT3-R was a collaboration between Canadian designer Paul Deutschman and team owners Giovanni Ciccone and Ernst Wöhr.

The first Callaway Competition C7 GT3-R will be campaigned by Callaway Competition’s race team, supported by Whelen Engineering.
