Callaway News: SC740 release -

Post by Callaway Chris » Fri Mar 18, 2016 9:21 am

For immediate release.

2017 Callaway Camaro SC740 Preview

Today, Callaway Cars has announced plans to manufacture the Callaway Camaro SC740* — the specialist version of the 2017 Camaro ZL1 which Chevrolet will begin to produce later this year.

2017 Callaway Camaro SC740

With 740 bhp, the Callaway Camaro SC740* will produce more power than any other high-hp production sport coupe:

• Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 — 640 hp est.
• Ford Mustang Roush Stage 3 — 670 hp
• Dodge Challenger Hellcat — 707 hp
• Callaway Camaro SC740* — 740 hp est.

Callaway's GenThree™ Supercharger System is at the core of the Callaway Camaro SC740*. Unencumbered by original equipment manufacturers' packaging and cost constraints, Callaway replaces the Camaro ZL1's supercharger with its patented GenThree™ Supercharger. Rotor pack displacement is increased from 1740cc to 2300cc: 32% larger than stock. Callaway engineers also designed the new supercharger housing and integrated intake manifold to reduce charge air temperature and to increase airflow quality for more power. Plus, Callaway's TripleCooled™ intercooler system utilizes three low-restriction intercooler elements for more consistent lap-to-lap performance at the track and more consistent run-to-run performance at the dragstrip. And, electronic engine management is programmed for perfect drivability under all driving conditions. See "Callaway Supercharging" in the callawaycars.com website for more detailed information.

The Callaway Camaro SC740* will be available in late 2016 as a 2017 model, built at Callaway's California and Connecticut factories and sold by Chevrolet dealers nationwide. The Callaway Camaro SC740* will come with Chevrolet's advanced ZL1 handling and aerodynamic equipment, as well as the optional, new-for-2017, ten-speed automatic transmission. All Callaway cars, pickups and SUV's are covered by the most comprehensive warranty program offered by any specialty manufacturer, overlapping the GM factory warranties.

The Callaway Camaro SC610 is available now in both coupe and convertible body style (coupe shown below). Photo gallery here. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Callaway Camaro SC740* will be offered only as a coupe.

Chris, is there going to be a shock tower brace for supercharged Camaro's?
The brace really tightens up the car for better handling.
