Callaway now says it will begin converting C7 Corvettes into sporty AeroWagens, and the first few will be ready by the fourth quarter of 2016. Oh yes. Wagon fans, rejoice!
The firm does draw a line in the sand however, noting that there isn’t any space to add rear seats and there won’t be a four-door version available (for that, there’s always the Z06-engined Cadillac CTS-V). That said, all of the AeroWagen’s body modifications are said to be completely reversible, and Callaway tells us the conversion could be installed or removed in a matter of hours.
So why the long delay? Callaway’s Mike Chessnoe tells us the project was put on the back burner while the firm developed their 757-horsepower “SC757” Corvette Z06 package and Corvette GT3-R. Now, the team is blazing ahead and plans to have the first few complete by the end of the year.
The price? Chessnoe says it’s still tentative, but the team is aiming for the same $15,000 mark as was announced in 2013 (plus an extra $1,500 for painted carbon fiber). Callaway will perform its Corvette-to-wagon conversions at its shops in Connecticut and California.
