The C16 Speedster is a Corvette based supercar from American tuning company Callaway. The Speedster is the third C16 model from the company and joins the C16 Coupe and C16 Cabriolet models.

The Speedster is powered by a supercharged 6.2 litre V8 like the other models, but with the addition of an intercooler power has risen to 700 horsepower and torque stands at 660 ft-lbs. These figures give the Callaway C16 speedster a 0-60 time of just 3.2 seconds and a 210 mph top speed.

While the overall shape of the Callaway C16 Speedster is almost identical to the Corvette, the styling elements and roofless design set the car clearly apart from the original car.

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 look—from the 254 mph Sledgehammer and our C4-based Le Mans race cars to the C7, the C12 and now the C16,” says Callaway. The car’s 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 model—a first for us,” says Callaway. “It’s tools like PTC’s 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 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. C16's are built to order. Clients choose body color and interior appointments to individual taste.
