Callaway AeroWagon Corvette shooting brake coming by end of 2016

Back in 2013, Corvette tuner extraordinaire Callaway unveiled a shooting brake concept based on the C7 Corvette.

At the time, Callaway said it hoped to have the conversion ready for sale in late 2013 and at price of no more than $15,000.

Though we haven’t heard about the project since the original announcement, it’s still alive and well. The folks at BoldRide noticed that Callaway has on its website confirmed that the conversion will be available starting in the fourth quarter of 2016.  

The conversion is only available for the Corvette’s coupe bodystyle and should the owner wish the process can be reversed. It consists of a single element made from carbon fiber that attaches to the rear of the car. It also has a hatch that provides easy access to the Corvette’s trunk.

The conversion essentially makes the Corvette a shooting brake; a coupe with the tail end of a wagon. Think of it as a budget American alternative to the Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] FF, or the equally custom Aston Martin-based Bertone Jet, although Callaway states that you won’t be able to squeeze in an extra pair of seats to form a 2+2 configuration.

Callaway hasn’t released pricing but says it is currently taking orders.
