Will a C6 Callaway do 200 MPH?

Post by jonstr » Sat Nov 10, 2018 9:49 pm

The local Cars and Coffee is having a special display in December - Over 200 MPH cars. Given that this is Scottsdale, the display will no doubt be loaded with high-end Porsches, Lamborghinis, and other exotics - likely even a Veyron or Chiron.

I'd love to be able to represent for Corvette in general and Callaway in particular, but I can't find any documentation of top speed for the C6 Callaway. Documentation would be handy, because I'm guessing they won't believe me - the show organizers seems to have an anti-American car bias from my observations. :help

I'm not really in a position to go out and see if I can crack the 200 MPH mark either.

I found this in a magazine about the 2008 C16. Seems it might fit what you need. Your B2K has almost as much HP and deserves to be there! I’ll bet Chris has some material.

Our customer gets an individually built, uniquely styled automobile that can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, runs the quarter-mile under 11 seconds, and delivers a top speed of 210 mph (with a manual transmission)," exclaims company founder Reeves Callaway. "Additionally, it can be serviced at your local Chevy dealer and comes with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty."

Now that sounds promising! Do you happen to know the magazine and month/year? Maybe I can find an online copy.

Believe your car was 205 mph, at least. Let me see about documentation.

Hi Chris - checking back in on this. Did you get a chance to look for any documentation?

There's a document I am thinking of, but still need to locate. I'd sign up for it, and put me as a reference for questions in the meantime. :beer

It's not really 'sign up', it's just 'show up', but I probably will go in any case. In part, because I'm wondering if they will challenge me about it. :wtf

I've still got you and Reeves on my cell phone. Heck, I can have them call Reeves for verification. :jsmile (kidding, of course). :beer
