Thanks!

The 650 hp Callaway C16 Coupe is priced at $225,000. It is inclusive of virtually all options on the Callaway Corvette, including our wheel/tire group, suspension, brakes, and the Deutschleder Interior

Doors, steering wheel and dash are all amazing and drool-worthy....ESPECIALLY those door panels....good lord.

I just can't see spending that kind of money on modifying a Corvette though and retaining the crappy, stock seats and 10 year old nav I thought callaway corvettes had an option for a better seat??

I'm really liking the interior, but the exterior doesn't work for me (other than the hood and wheels....that's still my favorite hood on a C6 corvette). The tacked on pieces on the rear glass are definitely not befitting a 225k car and make me sad though.

Customer will use their iPhone5 on a custom mount for NAV.

However, they wanted the USB integration for the iPhone to function, so the factory system remained.

Customer could own any car in the World (and does own several other very significant vehicles) however, they appreciated the Callaway brand of performance Powerfully Engineered, indeed

The price of exclusivity.

Heck, we are just happy with our 2008 C6 Coupe.

Glad SOMEONE will enjoy this new C16! It certainly will not be us!

We do offer our Sport Seats, but this customer wanted the factory seats - they chose the interior colors, and insisted on the exterior being the factory Night Race Blue. We used a dove gray leather and alcantara, with Night Race Blue colored stitch

very nice! I love the fact that no one commented on the auto. If this was a car news site everybody would be all over that.

Obviously the customer chose an auto, I bet 98% of the naysayers from car news sites couldn't afford a C16 Callaway lol.
