If you have always wanted a Chevrolet Corvette wagon, we have good news.
Three years ago, Callaway showed off a Stingray AeroWagen that essentially converted the American sports car into a shooting brake. The company has now confirmed it will produce the Chevrolet Corvette AeroWagen and will begin deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2016. All regular production Chevrolet Corvettes and Callaway Corvettes are eligible, but it must be a C7 model. According to Callaway, the package includes a carbon fiber composite structure that is one piece and autoclaved to preserve original function and hardware. The rear operates as a liftable hatch so owners can access the trunk.
Perhaps the craziest thing is that installation of the package is straightforward and reversible, meaning the vehicle can be reverted back to its original form.
That means you do not have to purchase a Callaway Corvette for the conversion, which can be installed on your stock Corvette coupe. No interior changes are made to the cargo area, but seats cannot be added due to the Corvette’s chassis and running gear configuration.
The cost of the conversion is $15,000 in addition to the cost of the new Corvette, and getting it painted to match will add an extra $1,500 to the price.
Callaway has no plans of offering a four-door variant and performance specifications for the Callaway Corvette AeroWagen will be announced at a future date.Discuss this story on our Chevrolet Corvette Forum
