What better holiday than St. Patrick’s Day for specialty car manufacturer Callaway Cars to announce plans to produce its version of the 2017 ZL1 Camaro. Quoting Callaway, “With 740hp the Callaway Camaro SC740 will produce more power than any other high-horsepower production sport coupe:

• Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 — 640hp est.
• Ford Mustang Roush Stage 3 — 670hp
• Dodge Challenger Hellcat — 707hp
• Callaway Camaro SC740 — 740hp est.

Callaway's GenThree Supercharger system is at the core of the Callaway Camaro SC740*. Unencumbered by original equipment manufacturers' packaging and cost constraints, Callaway replaces the Camaro ZL1's supercharger with its patented GenThree Supercharger. Rotor pack displacement is increased from 1740cc to 2300cc: 32 percent larger than stock. Callaway engineers also designed the new supercharger housing and integrated intake manifold to reduce charge air temperature and to increase airflow quality for more power. Plus, Callaway's TripleCooled intercooler system utilizes three low-restriction intercooler elements for more consistent lap-to-lap performance at the track and more consistent run-to-run performance at the dragstrip. And, electronic engine management is programmed for perfect drivability under all driving conditions.

See "Callaway Supercharging" in the callawaycars.com website for more detailed information.

The Callaway Camaro SC740 will be available in late 2016 as a 2017 model, built at Callaway's California and Connecticut factories and sold by Chevrolet dealers nationwide. The Callaway Camaro SC740 will come with Chevrolet's advanced ZL1 handling and aerodynamic equipment, as well as the optional, new-for-2017, ten-speed automatic transmission.
