Aerobody Kit was an additional $6500 in 1988 but priced today from Callaway they are listed at over $20,000. Corvette AeroBody was conceived by founder Reeves Callaway and designed by Paul Deutschman of Deutschman Design. Reeves explained: “We wanted to exploit the opportunity to re-engineer airflow management outside the vehicle for added stability in the 200 to 250 miles per hour window. Next, we wanted to revise internal airflow to provide additional engine cooling. Finally, we hoped to illustrate that aerodynamic panels could be designed to complement the beautifully integrated styling of the late model Corvette.” Callaway’s efforts were proven when a prototype AeroBody kit was installed during Callaway “Sledgehammer” preparation. In October 1988, this turbocharged, street-driven C4 Corvette shattered the closed-circuit speed record with a run of 254.76 mph. Michael Thomas Motor Co 636-465-6732 www.MTMotorCars.com
