You Can Finally Order Your Callaway Corvette AeroWagon

Way back in March of 2013, we brought you the news that Callaway was working on a sport wagon conversion for the then-new Corvette Stingray and while it has taken them a few years to get their AeroWagon to production, you can now order one for your Corvette Stingray or Z06.

While some Corvette traditionalists will scoff at the suggestion of converting America’s longest running premium performance car into a wagon of any sort, the 2-door “shooting brake” design has been showcased on a variety of other cars, most recently including the Ferrari FF. It is unusual, but variety is the spice of life and for a new Corvette owner who wants an even more unique Chevy supercar – the Callaway AeroWagon is the answer.

The conversion of the Callaway AeroWagon for the C7 Corvette Stingray or Z06 is actually pretty simple. The company removes the rear hatch and replaces it with the AeroWagon cover which transforms the car into a sporty little 2-door wagon. The removable panel over the seats retain their functionality and if the owner of these Corvettes ever wants to convert back to the traditional fastback design – the Callaway AeroWagon doesn’t require any permanent changes.

In the Ferrari, this long-roof-coupe design affords owners a little more headroom for rear riders and the larger cargo area (compared to a traditional 2+2 coupe – there is no coupe version of the FF). In the case of the Corvette, which has no back seat, the sport wagon conversion from Callaway will offer a unique exterior design and a much taller rear cargo area, while reducing the coefficient of drag.

In short, the Callaway AeroWagon conversion will give Corvette Stingray and Z06 owners gives you more cargo space and better aerodynamics. The company hasn’t stated official pricing for the AeroWagon package, but when the idea was first introduced back in March of 2013, the company was estimating a price of $15,000. In October that same year, more news surfaced that the company had raised the prospective price to $22,995.

When transformed into the Callaway AeroWagon, the C7 Corvette Stingray and Z06 are just about the quickest grocery getters sold in the world. I understand that it is hard to really call the Corvette AeroWagon a “wagon” like some of the larger, 4-door wagons, but for the Corvette owner who constantly needs a bit more cargo space – the solution is only one a phone call away. Also, those Corvette Z06 owners who want a lower coefficient of drag, maybe for top speed runs or something, the AeroWagon is a unique approach to improved aero properties.

Callaway is taking orders now with deliveries expected later this year.
