Back in 1973, Reeves Callaway (whose full name is Ely Reeves Callaway III) couldn't afford to pursue his dream of becoming a race car driver. As an alternative, he joined Bob Bondurant's racing school as a driving instructor. While teaching with the newly released BMW 320i, he got to know the car's strengths and weaknesses. As a result, he persuaded BMW to let him take one of their cars to his workshop in Old Lyme, Connecticut, where he enhanced its power.

Callaway created turbocharger kits for various car brands including BMW, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz. Additionally, he designed the HH IndyCar V8 engine and a twin turbo kit for the Alfa Romeo GTV6. In 1987, he gained widespread recognition when he developed a twin turbo kit for the Corvette that was sold through Chevrolet dealers as a factory option under Regular Production Option (RPO) B2K. The Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette was a hit and a total of 510 units were sold over a period of five years.
Aston Martin hired Callaway to create new cylinder heads for the Virage 5.3L V8 engine. As a result, he was put in charge of the engine program for the AMR1 Group C race car.
