The spiky-haired host of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”, Guy Fieri has received his personalized 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition. The American sports car is displayed at the Chevy stand at SEMA 2012.
The 427 Convertible Collector Edition blends elements of the Z06 and ZR1 models to create the fastest and most-capable convertible in Corvette’s history. Its heart is the 427-cubic-inch (7.0 liter) LS7 engine from the Corvette Z06. Rated at 505 horsepower and 637Nm of torque, it is the most powerful engine ever installed in a production Corvette convertible – and, like the Z06, the 427 Convertible is only available with a six-speed manual transmission. It also features a dry-sump oiling system.
Fieri’s 427 Convertible is black with custom yellow stripes – a twist on the trademark yellow-and-black color scheme of his other Chevys. The car also features embroidered seat headrests and fender badges that call out the Guy Fieri Foundation. It rides on a quartet of black Cup wheels (19×10 inch front/20×12 inch rear) wrapped in Michelin PS2 tires.
