As their tagline suggests, Callaway Cars build some powerfully engineered automobiles. While the company may be best known for their decades of tuning experience surrounding the almighty Chevrolet Corvette, they have just announced a new service for Callaway owners. Now, the tuning house is getting into the classifieds market.
According to Callaway Cars, the company has just started advertising customer cars for sale directly from their own website. This is actually a rather interesting move by the team, as what better place to buy a car than directly from the folks that built it. Now, Callaway aren’t actually in the car selling business per say, but rather they are acting more like an auction site. Owners can list their car on the Callaway Cars website, providing they pay the $250 listing fee, and Callaway will curate messages from interested parties for the seller.
Unlike a place like Bring A Trailer however, Callaway Cars have no intentions of skimming some money off of the top of the sale. The company plays no role in the actual sales transaction, and they receive no portion of the sales price. That initial $250 payment covers services from the tuning house for six months.
There aren’t many cars listed for sale at the moment, but what is there is pretty special. Take this 1991 Callaway Corvette Speedster for example, which was commissioned by the one-and-only James Cameron. It’s one of just 10 Twin-Turbo Speedsters built, with this being the only car finished in Black over beautiful tan German leather. 1991 also marked the final year of Callaway’s Twin-Turbo program, with this car putting out a stout 450 horsepower and 613 lb-ft of torque. It’s not cheap either, carrying a price tag of $275,000.
This new service from Callaway Cars is interesting, and may prove to become invaluable for buyers and sellers alike. For now though, it gives us all a great place to ogle over some of the coolest Corvettes ever built.
