Callaway Of the Month October '06

Welcome! The Callaway Owners Group is dedicated to the preservation of the world's most powerful Corvette.

1990 RPO B2K - Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette

 

This month, we are pleased to bring you a Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette like no other.

Finished in Candy Tangerine, the metal particles in the paint sparkle and bounce light in many different directions, as one looks over this automobile. Beginning life as a rather innocent looking 1990 Callaway B2K Corvette, the car was ordered with many options from the Corvette factory in Bowling Green such as the Preferred Equipment Group #1 that includes electronic air conditioning, Delco-Bose radio, and a six-way power driver’s seat. A matching power passenger seat was checked on the options list, as was gray leather sport seats, dual roof panels, and the performance handling package that consisted of Z51 and FX3 – This Corvette was LOADED!

Shipped to Old Lyme, Connecticut for the Twin Turbo option, the car returned some years later for additional upgrades. Ultra-efficient hood blisters became available during the 1991 model year, and some owner took advantage of the look & performance of those by adding them to their B2K’s. In addition to fitting this car with those blisters, the owner also added the big WonderBar that delivers a greater volume of air to the turbos – and with more efficiency.

The current owner decided the stock-body status of this car would not suffice, promptly sending it to Old Lyme for its transformation from sleeper to stunner! While a fresh coat of bright red paint would have suited most, a very unique color was chosen to cover this car. Candy Tangerine covers every inch of the cars visible fiberglass surfaces. Expertly applied, I saw no trace of the original hue during my visit with this magnificent car. Walking towards the car, one needs to don sunglasses, as the vividness of this color is intense!

Built as something unique – a crowd stunner, this car certainly has delivered on that promise. Enjoy your Callaway!
