General Motors to auction first Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ‘C7’ at Barrett-Jackson for charity
At the Barrett-Jackson’s 2013 Scottsdale auctions in Arizona on 19th January, the sports car enthusiasts and collectors stands an exclusive chance to take home the one-of-a-kind ‘piece of Chevy history’. As the very first 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ‘C7’, the 7th generation of the classic American sports car which has been engineered to defy convention and designed on purpose to dismiss the ritualistic and the cliché, to come off the Chevrolet’s production facility will be auctioned for charity by General Motors. Acclaimed to be the world’s largest automaker and a leading contributor to charity with an impressive track record of using historically significant models to raise funds for worthy causes, General Motors will auction off its completely-redesigned, most powerful and capable Corvette without reserve to raise funds to help College for Creative Studies charity. And considering the fact that the very first SRT Viper successfully fetched $300,000 at a Barrett-Jackson’s auction held last year, it’s been estimated that this Corvette C7 on sale, which was recently unveiled at Detroit Auto Show along with the Bentley’s world’s fastest four-seat convertible will also garner an impressive figure at the auction block.
