In Corvette tuner circles—and performance car circles in general—Callaway remains a legendary name. From the simply bizarre to the purely awesome, the brand has run the gamut, but now it’s working with the best Corvette ever: the 2015 Z06.

Due for an official unveiling at the National Corvette Museum C7 Bash in the Corvette’s home of Bowling Green, Kentucky, running April 23-25, the 2015 Callaway Corvette Z06 promises upgraded performance through extra power (an undisclosed amount as yet); plus Callaway-specific aesthetics.

That GenThree supercharger? Callaway says it displaces 32 percent more than the stock Z06 supercharger, and it mates with an upgraded manifold design and a new triple-element intercooler for improved heat-soak resistance. Another change: the supercharger’s plenum is exposed to the ambient air through a hole in the hood.
How much will it set you back? A cool $16,995—plus the Corvette Z06 it’s built on.
Look for more details after the official unveiling later this week.
