The annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction is the biggest collector car auction of the year. As such, you can always expect to find some of the world’s most incredible automobiles there, and this year’s auction was no exception. Chevrolet went all out for the 46th annual event, auctioning off two Corvettes to raise a total of $2.325 million for military veterans.
The first Chevrolet up for auction was the first production model of the Corvette Carbon 65 Edition. While this stunning sports car is incredibly desirable as it, Chevrolet increased its value by having it signed by President George W. Bush. This unique Corvette sold for $1.4 million. The money from the sale will benefit the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative, which supports post-9/11 veterans.
The second Chevrolet to hit the stage at the Garret-Jackson Scottsdale Auction was the first retail model of the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZR1. Not only does the 2019 ZR1 feature a stunning design, it is also the most powerful and fastest production Corvette ever. It’s no wonder that this rare model went for $925,000. The money from its sale will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization that supports wounded veterans.
