Known for turning out high-performance variants of General Motors vehicles like the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray GT3 racer, Corvette AeroWagon conversion, and SS sedan, Callaway has just revealed details of its newest creation dubbed the Callaway Camaro Z/28 SC652.

Based on the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 with the 505-hp 7.0-liter LS7 V-8 with 481 lb-ft of torque, Callaway adds an Eaton TVS2300 LS7 supercharger system that was first developed for the 2006-2013 Callaway Corvette Z06 SC652. Total output climbs to 652 hp at 6700 rpm and 620 lb-ft at 4400 rpm – increases of 147 hp and 139 lb-ft, respectively. That’s also 72 hp and 64 lb-ft more than the supercharged Camaro ZL1 and 14 hp and 16 lb-ft more than the supercharged C6 Corvette ZR1.

Callaway warns that the Camaro Z/28 SC652 is not for the “faint of heart.” The tuner claims the supercharged Z/28 will sprint to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and finish the quarter-mile in 11.5 seconds at 124 mph.

Appearance upgrades include under hood build plaque, carbon fiber injector covers, Callaway badging, dash plaque, embroidered floor mats, door sill panels, Callaway key fob, and authenticity documentation package.

The Callaway Camaro Z/28 SC652 comes with the Camaro Z/28’s standard high-performance parts including the LS7’s dry-sump oiling system, six-speed manual transmission, aerodynamic bits, wide Pirelli tires, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, and spool-valve dampers as well as the Z/28’s weight reduction measures.

Only 10 examples of the Callaway Camaro Z/28 SC652 will be built with the package costing $19,995 on top of the Camaro Z/28’s $75,000 base price. That price does, however, include a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. Options include a custom car cover, Callaway factory delivery, and a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain service contract.
