We’ve heard you loud and clear. The Corvette Aerowagen look isn’t your cup of tea. While the Shooting Brake design, applied to one of the most iconic nameplates in American car history, is a big hit with the Shifting Lanes team, most of our fans prefer to see it die in a warehouse fire. That’s a real shame, because while all the attention is over the added hunchback, no one seemed to notice that the makers behind the buttlift kit also makes an insane power package.
Callaway, the modifiers of all things Chevrolet, not only made the Aerowagen kit available for $15,000, but they also have a power package for the Corvette Z06. The SC757 bumps the Z06 to a stunning 757 horsepower with 777 lb-ft of torque. With a new supercharger and high flow intake system, the modifications will generate a 0-60 mph time of 2.8 seconds. The quarter mile can be had in 10.5 seconds at 131 mph. And this is all WARRANTIED! Those figures may not sound as impressive as the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, but keep in mind the rest of the equipment between the two cars.
As driven by Matt Farah in another awesome One Take, he believes that if you put slick tires on the Callaway Corvette it may put up quarter mile times in the 9’s. We’re willing to bet that he’s right. The Dodge Demon comes with a specially branded Nitto NT05R slicks mounted on 18″ X 11″. That’s an insane 315/40R18 size designed to contort, putting down 840 horsepower to the ground, and achieving a 9.65 second quarter mile time and at 140 mph. Meanwhile, the Corvette Z06 with the Z07 upgrade package will provide you a fatter P285/30ZR19 front and P335/25ZR20 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 summer tires. The numbers still give the Dodge Demon the edge, but we still believe this fight will come down to where the rubber meets the road.
