Mike Yager’s White Callaway B2K Car

Right in the middle of the Callaway Cars exhibit at Corvette Funfest sat one of Mike Yager's personal Corvettes.  It received a lot of attention, in part because it sat right next to a 2012 Callaway Corvette that had been named in its honor.

In 1987, Reeves Callaway modified a number of Corvettes with twin turbos (188 in all).  Power was increased to 345 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. that first year, and the look of the Vette was modified to show it was something special - very special!

The photos of Mike's 1988 car reveal the powerplant and the special badging.  Unique in the history of the world through 2011, the Callaway modification received its very own Chevrolet Regular Production Option code, which appeared on the factory invoice as B2K.

You can read Mike's description of his car from his museum's website.

Twenty five years later, to honor the first Corvettes converted to Callaway power, the 2012 Callaway Corvette B2K Car once again exhibits exceptional prowess, and the Option Code has been returned to the invoice.  This time, though, the horsepower is not 345 (or even 382, like Mike's) , but a whopping 620!  Instead of twin turbos this time, it's a special iteration called SC620 which applies cold air intake, intercooler, supercharging, and easy-flow exhaust, enough to blow one's doors off.

Twenty five of these 2012 models were built, and just a few remain.  In fact, we have a B2K Coupe right here,available for sale.  Check this link.

  1. How does an air air intercooler compare to water to air, are they used for different types of engines?

  2. I just read the Mike’s description of his car from his museum’s website.
    I think they used for same types of engines in different ways
