Lot #685 - The SledgeHammer Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette was the first automobile to demonstrate that top speed and full road car function are not mutually exclusive quantities. Fully equipped with leather interior, multi-speaker stereo and working air conditioning, it was clocked at 254.76 mph at Ohio's Transportation Research Center on October 26, 1988, then driven back to Callaway's Old Lyme, Connecticut shops on state highways. The 350cid V8 makes 880 brake horsepower at 6,250 rpm and 772 lb-ft torque at 5,250 rpm yet is tractable, smooth and quiet. Featured in virtually every major enthusiast magazine worldwide, SledgeHammer is a unique engineering and packaging accomplishment, beautifully built by the dedicated engineers and craftsmen at Callaway, breathtakingly fast and sumptuously luxurious. Valued at over $250,000. ****THIS VEHICLE IS NON-EMISSION COMPLIANT. FOR OFF ROAD USE ONLY****
