Callaway Range Rover

Post by i10fwy » Thu May 03, 2012 6:49 pm

There is a post on another site CAC from a guy who says he has a Range Rover with a vette motor stating it is 1of2 prototype from C/C ? I know there were some Rovers but I wasn't aware Vette motor swaps were done on any of them :conf

I believe the Callaway RR's were 1999 model year. They modified the RR motor, didn't put a Vette motor in it.

Managing Director, Mike Zoner's first task as a young engineer, was to shoehorn an L98 into a Range Rover. This was in 1988. It worked so well, a second was built. One is completely rusted to death. Sounds like the other one has survived :cool
