No.10: Callaway C16

Callaway might seem like an odd addition to a list of custom coachbuilders, but when it comes down to it, that's just what they are. While prominent rivals like Saleen tune existing production cars – or designs entirely original ones – Callaway has for years centered its business around crafting unique bodywork and modified performance packages for Corvettes, not unlike those offerings from Castagna and Spada (above). Callaway's latest is the C16, unveiled in pre-production form at the Los Angeles show, in production trim in Montreal, and in convertible body-style in New York. Based on the current-generation Chevrolet Corvette C6, Callaway fits new bodywork and an LS2-based engine that harnesses 616 force-fed horses to propel the C16 to sixty in a scant 3.3 seconds and cover quarter-mile in 10.9 on its way to a 206-mph top end. Each example is made to order at Callaway's factories in Connecticut and Germany, offering each buyer the opportunity to specify additional equipment – all covered by five-year warranties, which, in as exclusive a field as this, is even more unique.
