Guy Fieri, a chef who has hosted several TV shows including “Guy’s Big Bite” on the Food Network and “Minute to Win It” on NBC, had his Lamborghini stolen early the morning of March 8 from a British Motor Car Distributors dealership on Van Ness Avenue.

Police said the thief rappelled down from the roof of the building, entered through a window, then drove away in Fieri’s 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo convertible, a car priced at more than $200,000.

Surveillance videos investigators obtained from the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin County town of Tiburon show the Lamorghini driving by, but the car has not been found, police Officer Albie Esparza said.

With the Lamborghini possibly lost forever, Fieri apparently replaced it with an equally flashy car – a yellow Camaro convertible.

Fieri posted a picture of the car on his Twitter over the weekend with the caption, “Bitchin’ Camaro…thanks to my bruthas at Chevy! First yellow conv off tha line!”

Neither Fieri nor his public relations firm was available this morning to comment on the new car or the stolen one.

Anyone with information about the stolen Lamborghini is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
