Report: Callaway green lights production for 2014 Chevy Corvette-based AeroWagon Concept
Not too long ago, just shortly after Chevrolet revealed their latest 2014 Corvette Stingray for the new generation, the Corvette’s loyal tuning and coachbuilder, Callaway, revealed their own special edition, called the AeroWagon Concept. It was essentially a Corvette Stingray “shooting brake” with an extended boot and now, a new report from CarBuzz says that Callaway is going to proceed with putting it in to production.
The Callaway AeroWagon Concept features a unique carbon fiber structure using what’s called a Resin Transfer Molding process, allowing for a strong and lightweight chassis. Though Callaway claims that the additional body work does not affect performance.
Cost? The modification of extending the boot with said carbon fiber process, new windows and body matching coloring costs around $17,000 to make. Should buyers want more, a strict performance package—without the AeroWagon mod—adds a supercharger, upgraded intake and exhaust systems, interior and exterior badging, floor mats and more.
No time frame was given on the production front.
