Used 1988 Chevrolet Callaway Corvette Twin Turbo Very Rare for Sale
23,995 $ US
In the late 1980s, international race car driver Reeves Callaway was running a successful business of turbocharging various high performance European cars. At the same time, GM was struggling with ways to boost performance of the recently introduced C4 Corvette to help improve sales. GM was already experimenting with various techniques including turbocharging as well as DOHC engines. GM took note of Reeve's turbocharging work and contracted him to evaluate the turbo design they were working on (while they continued development of the LT-5 engine). Callaway judged the system good but not particularly practical for production. Callaway was contracted to develop a system of his own and within six months it was in Chevy's RPO catalog.
The Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette was available from 1987-1991 as option (RPO) B2K and could be ordered from select dealers in the U.S. Corvettes with this B2K option where then delivered to Callaway Cars in Old Lyme, Connecticut for the Twin Turbo conversion.
Once converted and tested, the cars were then shipped to dealers for delivery. Dealer repairs of the Callaway Twin Turbo option were covered by the standard GM, 12-month/12,000 mile warranty with Callaway Cars Inc., reimbursing the dealers for time and materials on repairs. This was the first and only time were GM has had a factory orderable non-GM performance enhancement on the Corvette.
