Description
Lot #687 - The first complete Callaway automobile, the Callaway C7R is a full monocoque carbon fiber front mid-engined, rear transaxle design. It is powered by a 383cid all-aluminum V8 with electronically-controlled port fuel injection making some 640hp breathing through the FIA-regulated air restrictors, this Callaway C7R led its class in the 1997 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona; subsequent rules changes precluded it from further FIA GT and Le Mans competition. Freshened at the Callaway Competition factory following Daytona, it is "on the button" and comes with spare nose and tail bodywork. Created by Paul Deutschman, the Callaway C7R's flat bottom design generates downforce at speed greater than the weight of the car. Its handling and aerodynamic performance delighted its drivers at Daytona: Ron Fellows, Johnny Unser, Boris Said and Enrico Bertaggia. Only two Callaway C7R's were built; the other is in the private collection of Callaway founder Reeves Callaway. ***SOLD ON BILL SALE ONLY***
