Following the debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, GM announced that the first 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (with the VIN number ending in 0001) will be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction this weekend.
The proceeds from the auction will go to benefit the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
“The new Stingray features a modern, dramatic design that will inspire a new generation of Corvette enthusiasts,” said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design. “With the proceeds of the new Stingray going to the CCS, the new Corvette will also help cultivate the next generation of designers who may work on modern, dramatic Chevrolets in the future. In fact more than 170 CCS alumni already work in the GM Design studios.”
The sale is scheduled for Saturday evening, Jan. 19. If interested, you can submit bids in person at the auction or online at www.barrett-jackson.com.
