RPO B2K: The 25th Anniversary Callaway Corvette at Bloomington Gold
Back in February we told you about the return of the famous B2K option package for Corvettes. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the very first RPO B2K Corvette, Callaway Cars and Bowling Green will be building just 25 2012 Corvettes. We caught up with car #11 at Bloomington Gold last weekend.
The aforementioned #11 of the 25 Callaway’s was front and center in the Bill Stasek Chevrolet booth at Bloomington Gold. The Cyber Gray monster had just come off of the delivery transporter a couple hours prior and hadn’t even been dealer-prepped yet. All of the 2012 Callaway’s were assembled earlier this year on April 9th.
Car #11 is a coupe with the pricey 4LT option package which includes suede seat inserts with red stitching and the optional (should be mandatory) 6-speed transmission. That equates to an $80,000 price tag BEFORE the Callaway treatment. Tack on another $40k-50k for the steroid injection. The car was so new that the Callaway window sticker wasn’t even on the car yet.
The stock power plant was treated to the SC620 package we adds the supercharger and other go-fast goodies including: special Callaway engineered dampers with performance wheel alignment and a lowered ride height, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP tires wrapped around Black Chrome Callaway wheels, and Red brake calipers. A carbon fiber body kit adds to the menacing exterior appearance.
One change we noted from the car revealed at the NCM Bash was the trim piece above the side gills. Each car is now marked individually with its specific build number on this carbon fiber widget.

We’re not sure how many of the 25th Anniversary B2K Callaway Corvettes have been spoken for, but if you’re interested in located one, contact Callaway Cars.
