First 2013 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Convertible auctioned off for $600,000

The first very (chassis #001) 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition – the fastest convertible in Corvette’s history – was auctioned off for $600,000 in the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction this past weekend.

Who paid all that? We’re not sure, but Chevy, NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jeff Gordon and team owner Rick Hendrick, raised a total of $700,000 for the AARP’s Drive to End Hunger food relief program.
