Callaway Corvette C16

Callaway Corvette C16

Drift through the exotic car' hall at the LA Show, looking at mostly last year's Lotus cars and the like (and really, how many Ferrari and Lamborghini and Bentley and Rolls-Royce cars can you look at anyway, until it all becomes overkill? And the WORST part is "asking permission" to come inside the ropes to take photos of their cars ... Shit, they are only cars, after all! And the companies want as much free press as they can get ...) THIS car caught our attention. Real AMERICAN power in a REAL American car. With Steve Saleen not exhibiting this year at the LA Show (and mysteriously so, as he is doing well, just finishing the build-out for the Ford GT on the assembly line built by his company in Dearborn, MI), this CALLAWAY CORVETTE from the company in Old Lyme, CT, was 512 horsepower of supercharged wet dreams for boys and girls.
