Callaway Corvette C16

Callaway Corvette C16

Take a standard Corvette $65,000 Z06 (of which only 4,000 have been made) and let Callaway have their way with it, as they have done now for some 30 years in the USA. They put on the blower, stiffen up the suspension (even more) and add even more horsepower to America's best-made street machine ... The 6 liter V8 will produce 616hp when they are through with it, about another $35,000 later. The car, called 'C16', is said to be capable of a 206 mph top speed and 0-60 in about 3.3 seconds). Yep, gimme an ALL-American sports car every time! You can have your prancing horses and the portholes on the fender of the Maserati (or as it is known in LA: "Junior's Ferrari") which makes it look like a lowered 1950s Buick ...
