Last C7 Chevy Corvette sold for $2.7 million

A black Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was sold for 2.7 million dollars at Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction on Friday.

The C7 Chevy Corvette bows out and will be replaced next month by the all-new 8th generation mid-engine Corvette. The final seventh generation Corvette manufactured is a black-on-red Z06 and it went for sale on Friday at a Barrett-Jackson auction.

The car was being auctioned off in support of Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The foundation builds “mortgage-free, accessible smart homes for the most catastrophically injured service members and helps pay off the mortgages for families of first responders killed in the line of duty.”

Well, the Z06 went on and fetched a staggering 2.7 million dollars, which breaks the Barrett-Jackson record for an automaker-donated vehicle.

“This is going to vibrate across America,” said Frank Siller, chairman and CEO of the Stephen Siller Foundation. “This donation will build at least five homes for our catastrophically-injured veterans to give them their independence and a better quality of life.”

“It’s appropriate that the most iconic vehicle ever built in the US, has the honour of being the highest auctioned vehicle at Barrett-Jackson for a charity,” said Steve Hill, GM U.S. Vice President of Sales, Service and Marketing. “What makes me proud to be a GM employee is that fact that we’ve supported the military and veterans for over 100 years. This is a great evening, but tomorrow morning we get back to work to help more service members in need.”

Meanwhile, the new C8 Corvette’s unveiling is a little more than 18 days away. The American manufacturer set the date of the launch for July 18th, 2019.

Speaking of the C8 launch, someone paid $15,200 for a pair of tickets to attend it.
