Reeves Callaway is letting his hair down - along with the roof of the new C16 Corvette, first shown in Los Angeles , last December. Heading cross-country, the well-known tuner rolled out the C16 Cabrio at the '07 New York Auto Show.

The tuner transformation that is the C16 starts with Corvette hardware and tunes the 'Vette's big V-8 into 560-hp or 616-hp versions through supercharging. A six-speed manual or a paddle-shifted automatic translates power to the ground. With the higher-output package and 582 pound-feet of torque, Callaway claims the Cabrio will drop 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and will run the quarter-mile in the low 11s. Top speed is estimated at 200 mph.

Callaway tweaks the Corvette's suspension with Eibach springs. Braking is revamped to include six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers.

Other modifications to the Corvette in its C16 iteration include new Callaway badging, leather interior trim, Recaro seats, and custom color selection. Dymag 19- and 20-inch wheels, front and back, are standard.

Prices for the C16 Cabrio start at $128,765, with pieces of the package available through dealers. The Callaway Web site, www.callawaycars.com, has details on ordering.

Hood, wheels, interior all huge +!

It would be awesome if they had a scaled down package without the body parts.

Nice, clean and pretty tasteful. But, gotta say that I think the GM team did a better job. Sorry.

The interior looks like a pair of wrangler jeans.

The nose of the car looks ridiculous.

Callaway used to make the hottest and classiest Corvette bodies...





now they've simply lost their mind.
