Scottsdale, Arizona, is known for its way with some of the luxuriant and performant cars out there. The Barrett-Jackson is a very famous auction that takes place there, and it had witnessed along years many premieres. From the first Toyota Supra that was sold for $2.1 million to the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, which impressed with the incredible $1.1 million-selling. Recently, another car joined the Barrett-Jackson record.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray came from lot number 3007, and it joined the million-dollar club as the first mid-engine that hit some $3million. As Barrett-Jackson did with Mustang Shelby GT500 and Supra, the earnings from selling the CIN 001 Corvette will find their way to a charity, for the Detroit Children’s Fund. The organization is non-profit and has the goal of earning enough money to increase the number of schools in Detroit.

Corvette also brings a Z51 performance package and a data recorder.
With the money, the successful bidder also received the chance of taking delivery of his ‘Vette at the well-known Corvette plant in Kentucky. Besides that, a Corvette Museum tour, a unique artwork, and a Letter of Authencity await. Rick Hendrick was the one who made the winning bid just in time, according to General Motors. Hendrick is the CEO of Hendrick Companies. He stated: “I am the number one Corvette junkie in the world. Thanks to Chevrolet and Barrett-Jackson, because they always pick charities that are so good and help so many people.”
