Corvette Of The Day: 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Callaway Coupe

This exceptional 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Callaway Coupe showcases the continued excellence of the Old Lyme, Connecticut, tuning specialists as the leading Corvette aftermarket tuners. Uniquely ordered by a Nebraska Chevrolet dealer, this Z06 combines the factory Heritage treatment with the Callaway SC757 upgrade package.

Directly shipped from the Bowling Green assembly plant to Callaway Cars, it stands alone as the sole model finished in Admiral Blue with a Twilight Blue Napa leather interior. The finishing touches, including the RPO CFA painted roof as indicated in the window sticker, were initiated at Bowling Green and skillfully completed by Callaway, featuring a custom painted matching hood with a distinct supercharger cutout and trim.

Central to the Callaway treatment is the Z06’s factory supercharged 6.2L LT4 V-8 engine, which, in stock form with dual-mode exhaust, delivers an impressive 650 HP and 650 lb-ft of torque. Callaway elevates the performance by replacing the LT4’s stock blower with their larger-displacement GenThree TVS2300 supercharger and intercooler system, resulting in a substantial increase to 757 HP and 777 lb-ft of torque. This power is efficiently delivered through an 8-speed paddle-shifted automatic transmission to a limited-slip, electronically controlled differential with an auxiliary oil cooler.

With Magnetic Ride Control Suspension, Michelin tires on chromed aluminum 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, and Brembo 4-wheel ABS disc brakes with slotted rotors and red calipers, the car offers sensational handling and stopping power.
