To showcase what it is calling the “most powerful new car in the world under $54K,” Callaway Cars is featuring its Callaway Camaro LT1 SC630 with the hood removed and the hardware exposed.

“The Callaway Camaro LT1 SC630 is the ultimate ‘Sleeper:’ a high-powered wolf in base-trim sheep’s clothing, giving you 630 horsepower under your right foot,” the company said in its news release. 

“The Callaway Camaro SC630 is also available in 1SS and 2SS trim, with more standard and optional performance and appearance equipment. LT1 or SS, the Callaway Camaro can be tailored to fit any budget.”

And, Callaway adds, “given the current COVID-19 dealership restrictions, new Callaway Camaros can be shipped directly to owners’ homes.”

The SC630 package includes Callaway’s GenThree supercharging system, TripleCooled intercooling, high-flow intake and powertrain management calibration, “resulting in 630 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque.” 

Callaway adds that it also adds badging on the exterior, interior and under the hood, and provide documentation “substantiating (the car’s) standing as a future collectible.”

But if 630 horsepower isn’t enough, Callaway also offers its Camaro ZL1 SC750 with 750 horsepower and 739 pound-feet of torque.

  1. so for around 15 -20k, I can get a Camaro SS and mileage don’t matter and for another 15 grand get a 7.0 chevy performance engine installed with slight transmission upgrades and have a beast for 40k with a brand new engine.
