If you’ve been following the Corvette market daily as I have, you may have noticed values have been creeping up steadily since early 2020, and I wrote about it here as the Covid phenomenon. In short, the popularity of the C8 in concert with a lot of disposable income for toys, supply chain issues, and plant closures caused a perfect storm. Pricing has softened a bit recently, but nothing resembling the deals that were around pre-Covid.
So where can a Corvette enthusiast go if they are looking for something exclusive? I’ve already reported on how the C7 ZR1 has now approached $200,000, so scratch that rare Corvette off the list. The sixth and seventh-generation Z06s are $45-80,000, so much for a deal there. Oh and let’s not forget about the C6 ZR1, those will put you out about $75,000. Oh where oh where is the enthusiast to go?
Enter the Callaway C4. Exclusive and rare? Check, as only 510 special RPO B2K examples (available through select Chevrolet dealers) were produced from 1987 to 1991. As a matter of fact, these twin-turbo monsters still hold the distinction of being the only engine package produced outside of GM to hold an RPO code.
So just how much of a bargain is the Callaway C4? Well, here are the 4 cheapest to sell most recently on Bring a Trailer.
But don’t get too excited, low mileage ones like these below still command crazy money, but it’s hopeful to know there are still some deals to be had.
And I’ll leave you with one last market price, the “big dog” SledgeHammer. With 880 hp and a top speed of 255 mph, it was clearly the King of the Hill Callaway, and the price of this example reflects it. If you want to know more about this legendary Callaway C4, our own Scott Kolecki did a great piece here. We often have vibrant discussions on our Facebook page, I would love to hear what you think about the Callaway C4. Douglas B
