It’s been a long time, but here it comes. In 2013, the Chevy Corvette C7 was brand new. The tuning company Callaway Cars promised shooting-brake conversions on C78 Chevrolet Corvettes soon.
Well, it didn’t come soon since it has been four years later, but here we are, staring at the Callaway’s fantastical shooting brake conversion, called the AeroWagen.Just look at this beauty!
Callaway Cars, a company known for modifying Chevy cars, helped us to see that their vision become a real car. Say hello to the C21 AeroWagen.
You might still have to wait for some undefined period if you want to buy an AeroWagen conversion, but at least you can see what it looks like in the sheet metal. These pictures of the car were taken during a video shoot at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California.
The big news is that you can get the shooting-brake conversion without having bought a Callaway Corvette. Coupes from the C7 generation can be modified into the amazing Corvette wagon of your dreams. There won’t be a four-door AeroWagen, though, since bumping the Corvette out into a wagon won’t allow for rear seats due to the Corvette chassis. However, who needs more seats when the car looks like this?
The new carbon fiber roof uses the original seal, hinge, and latch mechanism from the stock hatch. It also will save a few pounds and you can re-convert to the original style hatch whenever you want. Firstly, Callaway expected the conversion kit to cost $22,995, however, last year they said the price could be less than $15,000. It is still unknown when to expect the kits to be available to customers, but the wait may finally be nearing an end.
