Barrett-Jackson to Auction a C7 Corvette on January 19th In Scottsdale
Jalopnik Rendering of C7 2012
What that means is last year in their auction catalog they did not list the details of the 427, it was merely listed as a 2013 Corvette. This year for the Scottsdale auction, if you look at Lot #3016 you will see the following entry:
“A special Chevrolet model will be revealed and bidders will have the opportunity to take home this one-of-a-kind vehicle. All proceeds to benefit Center for Creative Studies. Will be sold at approximately 8:30pm on Saturday, January 19, 2013.”
Now all we need to figure out is which C7 VIN will it be. If my sources are correct it will be VIN #2 since the first production C7 Corvette will most likely go to the GM Heritage Center.
Chevrolet has a history of auctioning off special cars at this auction for charity dating back to when, in 2008, they auctioned off the first 2009 Corvette ZR1 for $1,000,000 with the proceeds going to the United Way.
So if you can’t be in Detroit on 1-13-13 then make sure you are at Barrett Jackson on 1-19-13. Oh yeah, make sure you bring your checkbook!
