Check out a Callaway sports car with Chevy Camaro roots
This Callaway C8 SuperNatural belongs to a series of just 18 vehicles Callaway Engineering, from Connecticut, built in the early 1990s on the Camaro chassis. It is on sale at the time of this writing, with the bidding at a low $21,000.
The car rolled off the factory line 29 years ago. The seller claims it was the first example in the batch to receive a body kit and an engine upgrade. The kit includes side sill extensions and a number of composite parts for the front and the rear end. While they were at it, the Callaway team replaced the stock rims with 18-inch OZ Racing rollers.
The interior has no major modifications, aside from a vivid blue gear lever and new seat upholstery with red and green stripes.
As for the engine, Callaway took the standard 6.2-liter LT1 V8 and boosted it to 416 PS (410 hp / 306 kW). Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, it takes the coupe to a top speed of 270 km/h (167 mph). Four-piston Brembo calipers help keep the power in check.
