2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Callaway Aerowagon Edition is Official

The C7 now has a Shooting Brake Edition

Finding a fast, utilitarian sports car that can haul the goods has always been a dilemma; causing enthusiasts to sacrifice one for the other. However, that’s not the case for Callaway and the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Callaway Aerowagon. For years, the Chevrolet Corvette has been the best in class with interior volume, flaunting the ability to fit two full sets of golf clubs. Now, with the added help of Callaway Cars, an available Aerowagon modification gives the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette the added look and feel of a sports car with a hatchback.

So, how does it function? It’s actually quite simple and only involves replacing the factory hatch. The entire replacement hatch is available as one piece, formed out of carbon fiber, and can be installed within one hour. Callaway Cars’ goal with the project was to design a “shooting brake,” terminology used in the nineteenth century to describe a vehicle that could carry hunters, equipment, dogs, and carcasses. By the early twentieth century, “shooting brake” began to label custom-built two-door station wagons that use the chassis from an existing luxury or sports cars.

After 26 years of working with GM, Reeves Callaway, the founder of Callaway Cars, claims the C7 drives better than any Corvette to date. According to Callaway, engineers have always tried to suggest changes that should be made to the next Corvette, things that Chevrolet should improve upon. “Thank God that this year’s Callaway is starting with a better foundation,” Callaway chuckled. “The new C7 has check marks next to everything on the list [of suggested improvements].”

Callaway hinted that the 2014 Callaway Corvette will have performance upgrades similar to those offered with the 2013 Callaway Corvette. Though still under development, and banking on the performance Callaway is most known for, Reeves hinted, “This year will feature positive manifold pressure, most likely supercharged.” That said, the added supercharger would be visible through a cutout in the hood; no cover or louvers to hide it – think Shaker Hood style. From there, Callaway will most likely offer upgraded wheels, tires, suspension, exhaust, and interior/exterior appointments to round out the Callaway package.

Obviously, this isn’t a platform you can pick up on your average corner lot, though, they will be available through two simple options. Here’s how: Either ship your new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray from the factory to Callaway headquarters in Santa Ana, California, to install the Aerowagon or you can order a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Callaway Edition with the optional Aerowagon package from select Callaway licensed Chevrolet dealerships, nationwide. How’s that for customer service?

Like many exotic shooting brake sports cars, with Callaway’s added Aerowagon feature, the new Corvette will have an increased luggage capacity. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Callaway Edition with the optional Aerowagon will available in either a carbon fiber finish for the base-price of $15,000 or with a body matched, standard Corvette color for an additional $1,500. Expect the Aerowagon early first quarter 2014.
