The GT3 grid in RaceRoom keeps growing as we are adding another new car to the line up!
Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R
The all new Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R builds on the famous Corvette Z06.R GT3 and comes with once again more performance and aerodynamics.
This astonishing racing car was developed by the company Callaway Competition based in Leingarten (Heilbronn, Germany), 151 kilometers south of Frankfurt and 10 kilometers west of Heilbronn. Callaway Competition was established-one in 1985 under the name “Woehr & Ciccone” company that has specialized since its foundation on body manufacturing, vehicle repairs and racing modifications. In 1988, the company “Woehr & Ciccone” expanded to take over the distribution of Callaway in Europe. The racing department Callaway Competition got its name in 1994.
The car sets new standards in the league of GT3 race cars and should, as its predecessor C6-based model, become a worldwide sensation in GT3.
