Callaway officially reveals the AeroWagen Package for the C7 Corvette

Owners of the C7 Corvette can now have their cars transformed into a 2-door shooting brake after Callaway Inc. officially revealed the AeroWagen Pacakge in the metal.

Available only for the Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06 models, the AeroWagen Package (first revealed back in April 2016 as a design render) makes use of a new one-piece carbon fiber roof that extends the rear of the C7 Corvette. It still uses the original components from the factory hatch which retains the original function of the rear door for storing cargo.

Callaway also stated that since the AeroWagen makes use of the original parts, owners can actually revert back to the original coupe design should they want to. Other additions installed on the special C7 Corvette include: new wheel designs, Callaway badges and a new vertical window at the back. With the sleeker design, Callaway also expects that the AeroWagen pacakge will have a lower drag coefficient than the standard coupe.

Aside from the Shooting Brake conversion, Callaway also said that the new AeroWagen can be had with the SC627 and SC757 powertrain conversions as well. Both are powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that benefits from a Callaway GenThree supercharger that ups the power output of the C7 Corvette by over 600 PS.

The SC627 package is based off the Stingray and generates 636 PS along with 827 Nm of torque. 0 – 97 km/h comes in at a quick 3.4 seconds. On the other hand, the SC757 trim is based off the Z06 and cranks out 768 PS with 1053 Nm of torque. It only needs 2.8 seconds to reach 97 km/h from a standstill.
