Built by: Callaway Competition
Years built: 2007-2009
In late 2007 Corvette Europe approached the FIA seeking approval to race a C6 Coupe in the GT4 category. After much study the FIA approved their request. A specially built batch of cars were shipped to Callaway Competition in Leingarten, Germany. In less than six weeks the Callaway team stripped the new car of all non-essential parts including carpet and standard seats. A new FIA approved rollcage was installed along with new brakes, center locking wheels and coil over suspension. The LS3 6.2 liter 437 hp engine remains stock except for the addition of a dry sump lubrication system. The car is also equipped with an air jack system to insure rapid tire changes.
While most of these machines are no longer actively competing, one of the original customer teams is still competing with this V8 racer. Dutch team DayVTec has so far managed three wins this year in their bright blue Gulf livered C6 GT4 in the hands of Ferdinand Kool and Max Koebolt.
