How Guy Fieri’s 427 Corvette C6 Convertible Ended Up

Fieri also enjoys driving. He has a collection of Chevys, including the red convertible 1968 Chevy Camaro SS that he drove in “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.” Instead of rebuilding the Camaro’s standard engine as planned, he chose an $11,000 ZZ502 crate engine with 505 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque. Among his other possessions are an a few others , a 2007 Corvette, a 1996 Chevrolet Impala, and a 1969 Corvette Stingray.

Fieri drove a Corvette ZR1 pace car participated in the 2012 Indianapolis 500. He made the most of the chance to gain access to Chevy’s Corvette Team. The result was the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition , which the company dubbed “the fastest and most capable convertible in Corvette history” at the time. It did this by customizing features from both the Z06 and ZR1 versions.

The beast was powered by an 427-cubic-inch, 7.0-Liter LS7 aluminum-block V8 engine from a Corvette Z06 that produced 505 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, the same amount of power as his Camaro SS. It had an dry-sump oiling system that stores additional oil in an external tank rather than the oil pan and a six-speed manual transmission. The car’s fender had emblems for the Guy Fieri Foundation, and the seats had custom embroidered headrests. The Chevrolet Corvette was mounted on four Black Cup wheels 19″ and 20″ Michelin PS2 tires.

But Fieri wasn’t going to keep this Chevy Corvette in his garage forever. Almost immediately after receiving it, he put it in the number up for auction at Barret-Jackson . $11,000 ZZ502 crate engine 0, a component of $11,000 ZZ502 crate engine 1, which assists kids and families in making healthy food choices, will get 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the vehicle sold for $270,000 .
