A brief history
The Callaway Speedster was a limited edition of the 1987-1991 Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette. Only 10 Series One Speedsters were constructed. Each one a different color combination.
Inspired by American speedsters of the 1920s and 1930s from Auburn and Stutz, Callaway’s Speedster was the ultimate expression of style-over-practicality motoring. It combined Callaway’s legendary Twin-Turbo L98, exotic and functional Paul Deutschman-designed Aerobody, and a new low windscreen, topless design. 1991 was the final year that you’d find an L98 under the hood of a Corvette and, as such, the final year for the Callaway Twin-Turbo program. Up to that point, more than 400 L98s had been turbocharged by Callaway. Engine enhancements and 10 PSI of boost took the L98 from a mediocre 245 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque to a world-class 450 bhp and 613 lb-ft of torque.
