C7 Corvette Stingray shooting brake, a poor mans Ferrari FF

By Updated on

If you ever wondered what it would be like to own a Ferrari FF then you may be able to do so on a budget, as we all know that the real deal is far out of reach of the average driver. Let’s clarify a little shall we; there is a report that we could soon see a shooting break version of the C7 Corvette Stingray in the fall of 2013.

Callaway Cars has released a rendering (see above) of what this long-roof version could look like, and we have to say it is a dead-ringer for the four-wheel drive, four-seat Ferrari FF. Okay, so we know we said above that this would be the poor mans version, but when you consider the C7 Corvette shooting brake concept top speed could be more than 200 mph, it’s still a pretty serious car and not the only C7 to benefit from a performance upgrade.

The longer version will give the C7 Corvette Stingray increased interior space, although we cannot see there being much room for passengers in the rear. The vehicle will be light thanks to the AeroWagon body being made from carbon fiber, so should also make it far more agile as well.

If what Callaway says is true then they could release the Ferrari FF wannabe around the same time as the production version of the C7 Corvette.

The changes are expected to cost around $15,000, and while there is a general agreement that a C7 Shooting Brake version is a good move for Callaway, it’s also suggested that this should be made available to European drivers and not just those in the US. Register your interest.
