• Callaway C16 Speedster - world debut at the Concours d’Elegance

Callaway today announced that on 19 August 2007, at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, they will add another version on the C16 line-up: the C16 speedster, a pinnacle in American supercar design.

The C16 Speedster is powered by the Callaway supercharged, intercooled, 6.2L all-alloy hand-built powerplant produces 700hp and 660lb-ft of torque, propelling the Speedster from 0 to 60 in an estimated 3.2 seconds. Top speed of the C16 Speedster is over 210 mph.

A unique element the Speedster shares with its C16 siblings – Coupe and Cabrio – are Callaway/Dymag Carbon wheels that weigh approximately 40-percent less than the lightest aluminum wheels, significantly reducing unsprung weight for improved acceleration, cornering and braking. These TUV- and DOT-tested wheels feature forged magnesium spiders surrounded by carbon fiber rims and measure 19" x 10" front and 20" x 13" rear. Residing behind the wheels is a Callaway / StopTech brake system, which utilizes 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers gripping 355mm x 32 mm rotors.
