We love ourselves some high-decibel classic rock and roll along with heavy metal here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis, as bands such as KISS bring back memories of some of the loudest and fastest cars of all time. Legendary frontman Paul Stanley is going to auction his 2022 Chevy Corvette Stingray Convertible at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming Las Vegas Auction to be held from June 30 to July 7. His iconic Corvette is listed with the VIN number 001 for the 2022 model year and is finished in a gorgeous Red Mist Metallic Tincoat.
It also boasts a black roof, the track ready Z51 package, and a characteristic high wing spoiler. The interior sports the bold tan-colored leather that covers the seats and parts of the dashboard, door panels, and transmission tunnel. Other areas are clad in characteristic black leather with tan-colored contrast stitching, and we have long known that Paul Stanley has been one of the most high-profile and enthusiastic Corvette fans there is: he had gone to great trouble to design a C7 Corvette Stingray that was displayed last year at SEMA.
Whoever wins this bid will receive much more than the keys to the car, as they also will be handed a custom and autographed PS120 Paul Stanley Signature guitar. The lucky recipient of this amazing car will also receive the guitar which is another deep part of who Paul is, and he is excited to bring great joy to other people with a killer all-American car and guitar. Ibanez is also the brand that has long partnered up with and sponsored Joe Satriani and is known for its heavier metal tone and grave adjustability.
Diehard customers have been thrilled with the Corvette’s exotic sports-car performance, easy to live with drive daily, and high-end trim levels that fully offer up a premium experience. Being the first generation to have the naturally aspirated V8 engine mounted behind the passenger compartment has been an integral part of boosting our beloved halo sports car into the realm of exotic and highly-sought-after machinery. The incredibly sharp handling and ground-shattering acceleration are a stellar match for sports cars that cost much more, but you could also enjoy a refined enough ride to traverse cross-country.
We admire Paul for the willingness to part with these two amazingly prized possessions, and the 70th Anniversary Model will also mark illustrious Corvette history this year, seeing availability on the top-line 3LT trim. Some of the distinguished exterior enhancements include dark-finish aluminum wheels with 70th Anniversary center caps, red brake calipers, and leather upholstery with red stitching and microfiber trim. With the Z51 Package’s addition you’ll be making 495 horsepower, and enjoy the addition of summer tires, screeching aggressive brakes, and our patented electronic limited-slip differential.
