Though it is said to be one of the most practical sports cars, the Chevrolet Corvette just got a little more usable.
Callaway Cars is a world famous Corvette tuner that's known for doing some properly wacky power upgrades to give the already fast 'Vettes a bit more juice. This week though it was gauging interest in a potential project — a Shooting Brake Corvette Stingray.
Given the market's recent obsession with Shooting Brakes — THINK: Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, Aston Martin "Jet" Rapide, among other Shooting Brake concepts — it's not a terrible idea. AND, considering how cool it actually looks, perhaps Callaway is onto something.
What's more, Callaway says that the AeroWagon would top 200 mph. So, we'd expect Callaway to do its usual handiwork and add a turbo or two to boost its top speed.
The Callaway AeroWagon is a shooting-brake-style vehicle based on the C7 Corvette Stingray. The company says it will produce the car if demand is sufficient. Callaway is currently taking orders for the vehicle at a price near $15,000 on top of the cost of a C7 Corvette. If produced, the AeroWagon would hit the streets at about the same time as the new Stingray.
