Callaway AeroWagon given green light for market entry

October 2, 2013

Some of you may remember the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon previewed earlier this year. Well, there’s now word it has been given the green light for production. If you’ve ever wanted a Corvette wagon, this could be your chance.

Featuring the body of the new Corvette Stingray, the Callaway AeroWagon showcases an obvious extended rear hatch with added cargo space in the back.

Most of the front end design is retained from the factory Corvette, while the doors and lower rear quarter panels are mostly unchanged. The roof, on the other hand, smoothly descends to a lip spoiler and to the hatch.

The hatch itself is made from carbon fibre which is moulded using a technique called resin transfer moulding. It’s both extremely lightweight yet very rigid to support high-speed driving.

Specifications on the engine haven’t been mentioned, however, the company does offer a comprehensive set of tweaks for the 6.2-litre V8, including a supercharger and a custom intake and exhaust. With these mods, the AeroWagon is expected to hit a top speed of over 320km/h.

The special creation will be available not as a complete car but instead interested buyers simply take a Stingray in for the complete conversion. Prices are set to start at US$16,500.
