Racer and driving instructor Reeves Callaway bolted a hodgepodge turbo system on a BMW 320i and loaned the car to Car and Driver journalist Don Sherman who wrote a one page article on the beast. At the time, the number of folks who had the capability to turbocharge a car without ventilating the engine block was extremely limited and in 1977 Callaway Cars was incorporated to develop aftermarket turbo kits for the every man. Several years later, Callaway worked side-by-side wtih OEMs to develop turbo systems for BMW, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Chevrolet, many of which maintained factory backed warranty. Callaway eventually became world renowned for his bonkers twin turbo Corvettes, and prices for these boosted machines are not cheap…but they are certainly cheaper than something like a Shelby…but how long with that last?
