Remember The Corvette Aerowagen? Callaway Now Taking Orders

If you are a Corvette owner and wished your car was a bit more practical or just have a thing for shooting brake-styled vehicles, Callaway has you covered.

The idea was originally introduced back in 2013, but Callaway has made the whole conversion plausible, announcing that they are now accepting orders, with the first cars to be ready towards the end of the year.

Available for standard Corvettes and ZO6s, Callaway’s Aerowagen conversion consists of a single piece made out of carbon-fiber. This replaces the factory hatch, using even the same seals, latches and hinges, making this a true bolt-on and reversible modification.

Callaway says that they haven’t calculated yet the increase in cargo volume but they expect it to be ‘significant’. Otherwise, it’s pretty much standard Corvette, with a predicted slight reduction in overall drag coefficient and the targa top still retained.

The first batch of installations is expected to start in the fourth quarter of this year in the company’s facilities in Connecticut and California.

The trend towards more practical sports cars has just gained one more player. What do you think? Yay or nay?

    I’m excited, thought this wasn’t going to happen 🙂

    pretty cool idea. im interested.

    I still think they should build the ‘vette in the original photoshop, even if it costs a quarter of the Z06’s price, rather than putting out just this reversible bolt-on. The C-pillar is too thick, and it would have been great to see the glass(or fake black plastic posing as glass) stretching at least 2/3 of the way over the rear fender.

    Looks cool, very similar to Ferrari FF, but it would be nice if it would have a purpose too, like adding rear seats 🙂

  • Jerry Hightower

    Looks like a dangerous blind spot at the rear sides.

    Once upon a time I owned a C7 Stingray just to have Callaway do this to it, had the car for 2 months, finally got around to getting ahold of them and they told me they were still developing it. Sold the car a month later to my dad. Now i’m waiting for pricing and to see if I wanna buy another Stingray for this.

    Well, we all know that Corvette is a Ferrari wanna be, and this one is a good looking but less functional GTC4Lusso…
