There is only one of these Callaway Sledgehammer Corvette cars at the moment that I know of. Callaway at the time of building this one said they could/would make another or others for 400,000. US dollars. The top speed of 254.76 MPH was attained by John Lingenfelter as the driver, and apparently was not an official documented recorded speed.
