Back when Callaway first introduced the Aerowagon Corvette Stingray Concept earlier this year, some rumors actually suggested that the car was part of an elaborate April Fool’s joke.
But no one’s laughing now, huh?
According to Carbuzz, Callaway is not only serious about building the Aerowagon, but it has actually given the green light for production for the wagon concept of the Corvette Stingray .
The base program comes in at $15,000 — same as the projected pricing of the concept — plus $1,500 to match the hatch equipment’s color to the body. Callaway’s going to give you a treat of a program that includes plenty of carbon-fiber components that Callaway built from scratch using a Resign Transfer Moulding process. That makes the materials ridiculously lightweight, helping the wagonized Corvette Stingray to achieve its performance specs.
Speaking of the power bump, Callaway is also prepared to give the muscle car’s 6.2-liter V-8 engine a noticeable power upgrade that the tuning company is promising will allow the AeroWagon to hit a top speed of more than 200 mph. With that much speed on tap, we’re thinking of an output increase go somewhere around 650 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. This power bump costs an additional $22,995 over the base AeroWagon kit.

The seventh-generation Corvette Stingray was unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. It comes with a completely revised exterior look, an updated interior and an all-new engine.
Under its hood, the 2014 Corvette Stingray features a 6.2-liter small-block V-8 engine that produces up to 460 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 4,600 rpm. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds and up to an anticipated top speed of 180 to 190 mph. When equipped with the Z51 package and the performance exhaust, the Stingray sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds.
The Corvette Stingray can be all yours for just $51,995, a pretty affordable number relative to most of its European counterparts.
