Travel Back In Time With This Drop-Top Callaway Corvette Twin Turbo

If you’re feeling a bit nostalgic about the 1980s or early 1990s, then prepare to have a major trip down memory lane with this low-mile 1991 Callaway Corvette Twin Turbo.

It comes from a time when General Motors offered the Callaway Twin Turbo engine upgrade as a regular production option, called the B2K, through select dealers. The model here comes from 1991, which means the 5.7-liter V8 engine is rated at 403hp and 575lb-ft of torque.

Each engine reportedly received 70 to 75 hours of work from Callaway, and that included remachining the block to receive steel 4-bolt main bearing caps, a new forged crankshaft and lower-compression Mahle pistons, among others.

Paired with a six-speed manual transmission, the twin-turbo Corvette also features Callaway’s Sledgehammer-inspired Aerobody, an original removable hardtop, black leather interior and more. The odometer shows just 9,743 miles. Also present is the Z5G Equipment pack, which included goodies like a deeper front splitter and bigger front brakes.

Finished in Dark Metallic Red, the car comes with a clean history free of accidents. The bonnet’s scoops drive air into the top-mounted intercoolers while a set of polished Z06 wheels have been installed because the original magnesium items suffered from porosity, according to the seller.

The car is currently being auctioned over at Bring A Trailer and hopefully the new owner will exercise that V8 and its twin turbos a bit more.

    401hp and 575ftlbs was a TON of power back then.
