Callaway Previews Its C7 Corvette Stingray Hood

Quote:
Last week we shared details of Callaway’s engineers successfully supercharging the first direct injected engine in the Gen 5 family from General Motors. The work that was done included the install of an Eaton TVS Supercharger onto a 2014 5.3L Silverado truck. In addition to the hardware, Callaway’s engineers worked on the calibration with the electronic powertrain management system which includes Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management.

This work has given Callaway a jump on the competition as it prepares to offer a Callaway-engineered 2014 Corvette Stingray. But not all work is being done under the hood. Callaway has always offered their own hood treatment for the Callaway-tuned Corvettes as the supercharger requires additional headroom. In advance of Corvettes at Carlisle, Callaway is showing a sneak preview of how that new hood will look.

The new space that will be occupied by the Callaway supercharger sits right behind the air extraction vents on the hood. The Callaway name sits on top while the word “SUPERCHARGED” will warn those that this car is no ordinary 2014 Corvette Stingray. As one commentor on the Forum put it, it looks like the Corvette Stingray has an eight-pack of abs!

Callaway Cars will have a tent set up at Corvettes at Carlisle so if you make it to the show, stop by and tell them what you think about the new hood.

It is pretty cool looking actually. Reminds me of the back of the alien in Alien.
