Callaway Competition is back, doing what they do best: unleash pure awesomeness on all petrol-heads out there. Their new Corvette C7 GT3-R has been recently revealed in Germany at the Hockenheimring, where the guys from Callaway have announced that this incredible vehicle is set to enter competition next year.

Designed to replace the successful Callaway Z06.R GT3, this project is definitely worthy of full and undivided attention. The brutally-looking Corvette features an aggressive carbon fiber widebody imagined by designer Paul Deutschman and many performance tweaks under the hood.

Now, it’s true that Callaway wasn’t willing to reveal too many details about their new beast, but they did confirm that a 6.2-liter V8 engine will be powering it up on the road to first place.

Good for around 600 bhp (447 kW), the engine was mated to an ultra fast X-Trac six-speed sequential transmission. The company is bragging about the fact that this beast has surpassed its predicted performance, although no one has any idea about what that means.

Now, we’ll just have to wait and see; the full-spec sheet might give us a hint about a thing or two, but I think it’s safe to say – judging by the gallery below – that this Corvette was built for much more than show. It seems well-equipped to tackle anyone or anything that stands in its path.
