Well it’s true the Callaway C7 was not a Corvette.

LeMans organizers refer to the 1994 car as a “Callaway Corvette”.
In 2001, the LeMans C12R car was homologated as a “Callaway” though it had C5 Corvette underpinnings.

What does Callaway racing historian Critt99 think??

I agree that C12 is a Callaway. The Callaway Corvettes are Corvette.

The underlying chassis on the Callaway C12R started life as a 1999 Corvette coupe made on the Bowling Green production line and has a VIN#.
A corvette racing historian thinks is the “last production Corvette” to ever race at LeMans.

But it’s not a Corvette...
