General Motors Unveils New Corvette for 2014
This week at the 2013 Detroit Auto show, the super bowl for automakers, General Motors unveils a new Corvette. The Callaway Stingray AeroWagon is the first Corvette to use the name Stingray since 1967. This American muscle car has a 6.2-liter small-block V8 under the hood producing 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque; by the way it’s a wagon.
In 1954 Harley Earl built the Corvette Nomad wagon for General Motors’ Motorama traveling road show but it never went into mass production. Since then a few adventurous designers have attempted to graft a taller hatch onto Corvette’s rear flanks often with so-so results. Callaway has totally redesigned the Corvette adding increased interior space while providing the best fuel economy of any car in the “supercar segment.” This isn’t you dad’s wagon, Callaway anticipates the AeroWagon to be capable of breaking 200 miles-per-hour. Now you can shoot to the store and make it back to house before half time is over.
