The Story Behind The Callaway Corvette Sledgehammer

Based on a 1988 Chevrolet Corvette, the Sledgehammer was designed and manufactured by Corvette aficionado and legend Reeves Callaway.  The Sledgehammer’s twin-turbo V8 engine produced a staggering 898 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 772 pound-feet of torque! Even by today’s standards, those numbers are incredible. Despite the number of 250+ mph vehicles on the market today, the Callaway Sledgehammer still ranks as one of the fastest vehicles in all of automotive history. Watch the video to learn how the Callaway was able to pull of such an amazing feat at that time!
