The 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition is the fastest Corvette in history. It is also a swansong for the C6 series.

A 60th Anniversary Package will also be available on all 2013 Corvette models, including the 427.

This convertible has the LS7 427-cubic-inch V8, hence the name, with 505 horsepower (377 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm). It is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. The LS7 was co-developed with the Corvette Le Mans-winning GT1 engine and features lightweight titanium connecting rods and intake valves, as well as racing-inspired high-flow cylinder heads and a dry-sump oiling system.

The 427 edition gets driveline and rear axle system from the Corvette Z06, a rear-mounted battery and standard Magnetic Selective Ride Control. The car features Cup wheels 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels with ZR1-spec Michelin PS2 tires. They can also be had in black.

To make the 427 a bit more special, it’s fitted with carbon fiber raised hood and front fenders. “CFZ” carbon fiber front splitter and rocker panels are optional on the 427 Convertible, and included with the 60th Anniversary package.

Other goodies you can get with the 60th Anniversary package include Arctic White exterior with a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with suede accents. Convertible models will have a blue top. It also comes with a ZR1-style rear spoiler, special badging, gray-painted brake calipers and the “60th” logo on the wheel center caps, steering wheel and seat headrests.

The 427 Collector’s edition is definitely the most desirable Corvette you can buy and the 60th anniversary package will make it more interesting.

Gm hasn’t revealed the pricing yet, but the first Corvette 427 Convertible offered to the public will go to the highest bidder at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction, on Saturday, Jan. 21. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Drive to End Hunger food relief program.
