it might look alright for some, but just the custom helmets fitted for you and passenger what happens when you change passengers. if it was just to race off road track only you dont need half the stuff with interior. and most states have some kind of law concerning helmets special glasses with no windshield. everyone has an opinion, over three hundred thousand no roof no saftey glass

That thing is sick. I'd rather have a roof and windshield but still callaway knows what they're doing. It's surprising Callaway gets no love on this board. Look at those brakes and suspension.

Hey , i know you pissed cuz this car is faster than your car and pricey, its unique!!! when someone look at car( For Some one who know CAllaway cars, NOT you!! ) , he will say waaww yaa this is callaway C16 , or whatever!
i remeber when i had my C4 callaway silver 86, all guys whom had C5 left there car and look at my car and there eyes , some didnt know what this car is, and some of your type guy said: is it C6 !! that was before 5 years!!

this is exactly same happend when i open my ZR1 hood , and ppl say WAAW damn what the hell, F1 engine!!!

What a joke..."encapsulated helmets."

I don't mind wearing my helmet running a road course but I sure as Hell wouldn't want to wear one driving down PCH. What a waste of a perfectly good Corvette...probably a $150K waste at that.

I still have respect for what Callaway does under the hood but otherwise...those guys are losing it...big time!

Doesn't Calaway marketing do any focus group interaction, or test marketing? For this car the "shave it's butt and make it walk/drive backward" philosophy wouldn't even work.

That car is great. Why don't some of you realize it's a throwback to the days with no windshield so it's a very unique car today. I like it and it'll add to the C6's history.

BTW anyone catch the price, it was sold for over $300,000!
