Callaway has facilities in Connecticut, California and Germany. Callaway Cars built the original RPO B2K turbocharged Callaway Corvettes under contract with Chevrolet from 1987 to 1991. These twin turbocharged, limited-production cars represented Corvette's flagship at the time and are coveted by performance car collectors worldwide. To date, B2K is the only Corvette RPO ever granted by General Motors to a non-GM company. During the 1990's and 2000's, Callaway Cars produced significant Corvette-based road cars and race cars. With Chevrolet's introduction of the sixth-generation Corvette in 2005, Callaway commenced development and production of their current series of supercharged Callaway Corvettes. The 2012 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Callaway Corvette RPO B2K is the latest example of Chevrolet and Callaway joint efforts.
