Back in March there were plans for a shooting brake version of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray by Callaway, which some of you thought this would make it more like a poor man’s Ferrari FF. Well, some of you will be pleased to know the Aerowagon Concept (its new name) will soon go into production.
When we first reported this news the price was going to be around $15,000 to convert your new C7, but we are afraid there has been a 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray conversion price increase, as you will now have to pay $22,995 instead.
This is a huge amount to pay on top of the price of the C7, and so could put a few people off, especially when some of them would have already paid a premium to make sure they were the first to get their hands-on the new Corvette.
Callaway will make a huge number of changes for that price, such as the overall look, as well as trying to make the 2014 Corvette Stingray more fuel-efficient. There is a fear this could affect its performance, but Callaway maintain their C7 conversion will still hit more than 200 mph.
No doubt the design will have a mixed reaction because while some of you will say it helps give the C7 a more unique look – again look at the Ferrari FF – others will say it makes it look ugly and spoils the overall look. However, some Autoblog readers believe Callaway does not go far enough and needs to play with the rear to add more height, although this would make it look more like two cars put together by a child.
