Callaway C12 Corvette at Cars and Caffe

Callaway C12 Corvette Cars and Caffe 4

This is the first Callaway C12 Corvette I’ve ever seen in person. I had the 1/18 AutoArt model as a kid, and I always loved its sleek design. Underneath the C12 was based on the C5 Corvette, but it was totally overhauled into the racing-derived exotic supercar you see here. Back in 1999 when a brand new C5 Vette sold for around $40,000 and did 177mph, the Callaway C12 sold for $200,000 and could reach +/- 200mph. Back in the late-90s / early-00s that was incredible performance, right on par with top tier supercars of the day.

There’s a very good reason I hadn’t seen one in person until now, and that’s because only 25 C12s were built. It’s quite a rare car, one coveted by collectors, and it was awesome to finally lay eyes on one in the flesh. Enjoy!
