i've read a lil bit about it, and from what i remember, it never made it to production, but lingenfelter said that they could reproduce it (at that time, dun remember when i read it) for $400,000. now, i have no idea... pretty impressive numbers.
im curious tho as to if it ever reached 254.8 since the number seems to be exacted, or if its just hypothetical number.

It looks like it may sit lower than stock, I'd say it probably handles better than he thinks.

And it's a professionally done job. I doubt they would overlook handling when partaking in such a project.

This car, and other Callaway Corvettes were in the old Road & Track Exotic Cars magazines that came out quarterly. I used to own all of them and I remember reading about that one, and a chop top roadster one too.
