  6. Re: why called c12?

    Hey Z06454, you nailed it. Callaway introduces the first of all of its products with a progression of C's. The C's have included Vettes, Camaro's, Alfa Romeo's, Aston Martins, boats, Rovers, and even indy engnies.

    its racing spec of normal c12
  8. Re: why called c12?

    why called c12 couldn't be called a v12 turbo?
  9. Because it isn't a V12 or a turbo. It is a naturally aspirated V8. In both street and racing trim. The street car only deviates from the stock Vette block a little, but the R version does some major tweaks. Mostly geared toward increasing the dependability of the engine over long periods at max output.
