Here at Shifting Lanes we rarely agree on a lot of things. However, for some totally odd reason, we have a unanimous obsession over shooting brakes. Something about adding a giant hump over a svelte coupe form makes us a little giddy and want to take a trip to IKEA. Back in 2016 we came across a prototype unveiled by Callaway that really piqued our interests. It was the Corvette Aerowagen concept. If you don’t know about Callaway, they’ve been modifying American cars for many decades before the others got into the game. They’ve since provided custom modifications and performance upgrades to many other car brands.

Their Callaway Corvette upgrades bump up the Corvette Stingray from 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque to a whopping 627 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque, via their own supercharger concoction and intake systems. Or if you’re certifiably insane and owns the Z06, their package bumps up the horsepower figures from 650 to 757 and torque numbers from 650 to 777 lb-ft of torque. Now they’ve visited Jay Leno’s garage to showcase just how the Callaway Aerowagen upgrade kit looks in person and what it is all about. Judging from the pictures and the videos, this is a Corvette that has a lot more utility than you’d think.
