1987 Chevrolet Corvette

The 1987 Chevrolet Corvette had a very popular engine package available: the Callaway twin-turbo package could be installed at the dealership, and upped horsepower in the 5.7-liter L98 V8 engine from 240 to 345 at 257 kW. The Callaway cost consumers almost $20,000.

Other changes in the 1987 Corvette included roller valve lifters which accounted for the improved horsepower in the base engine. The illuminated driver vanity mirror proved to be a popular option as well, with almost 15,000 of the 30,632 Corvettes sold featuring it.
