Callaway C16 Cabriolet is basically a modified and tuned Chevrolet
Callaway perform a rather extensive makeover on the Corvette
to create the C16. The C16 was drawn and modeled by designer
Paul Deutschman, who has a twenty-year portfolio of Callaway
designs. He is the architect of the Callaway lookfrom
the 254 mph Sledgehammer and our C4-based Le Mans race cars
to the C7, the C12 and now the C16, says Callaway. The
cars handcrafted bodywork replaces every panel of the
standard body to achieve its integrated look. The C16 also attains
a new level of manufacturing efficiency. In making this
car we went from CAD design straight to tooling, bypassing a
full-sized modela first for us, says Callaway. Its
tools like PTCs Pro/ENGINEER software, our technology
partner, that make such efficient car design possible.
The Callaway C16's excellent handling and ride feel are courtesy
of the newly developed Callaway/Eibach Multi-Pro coil-over suspension.
This advanced spring/damper system features ride height, corner
weight, and pitch angle adjustability. The aluminum-bodied dampers
feature 10-click-position compression and rebound adjustability
and have remote mounted reservoirs, allowing the driver to control
a range of ride stiffness settings for track or road.
Inside, the Callaway C16 cockpit is completely retooled in German
leather and Alcantara. Also fitted are Recaro Pole Position
sports seats with a choice of harnessing styles. Door sill panels,
steering wheel and passenger dash area also carry signature
Callaway badging. Each automobile is serialized and identified
by its build plaque. C16s are built to order. Clients choose
body color and interior appointments to individual taste.
