Callaway builds astounding Corvettes. This has been known for decades. And yet, when the company decides to build a super-Vette like this, it still takes us by surprise. Feast your eyes on the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R. It's what Darth Vader straps into when he wants to set a lap record.
Designed over the past two years, and completed just a few weeks ago, the track-built beast packs a 600-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 hooked to an X-Trac 6-speed paddle-shift sequential 'box.
Then there's that bodywork. Penned by , whose portfolio includes the delightfully bizarre T-Rex trike, it somehow makes the angry lines of the C7 Corvette even more aggressive.
This track-only beast will hit the circuits in 2016, with Callaway Competition's in-house racing team running the first example. Imagine this thing looming in your rear view mirror as you try to remember your braking point and nail the apex.
