A brief history
The Callaway C7 was a completely new, purpose-built car designed to embody the company’s motto: “Powerfully Engineered Automobiles”, carrying on the visual tradition of design by Paul Deutschman and offered in a limited production series.
The C7 was the first complete, bespoke Callaway Automobile. It is unrelated to any Corvette-based automobile or parts. This sports car was equipped with a carbon chassis, front-mid engine/rear transaxle design, 650 horsepower SuperNatural® engine, advanced aerodynamic ground effects, and debuted in competition at the 1997 Rolex 24 at Daytona. In her first race appearance, the Callaway C7 managed to lead the endurance classic at the 12-hour point. She was withdrawn with an electrical failure, and subsequent rules changes for all GT1 cars obsoleted her. Plans to manufacture road car variants of the C7 were then abandoned. Two C7 race cars currently exist; they were built during the 1993-1996 timeframe.
