2nd Production 2011 Camaro Convertible Auctions for $205,000
 
Reported on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE.

As previously reported, the second 2011 Camaro convertible that will come off the assembly line was auctioned at Barrett-Jackson this past friday at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Proceeds were given to the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

The final auction price for the first customer Camaro convertible came in at an impressive $205,000.

GM products took up 3 of the top 5 sales spots. A 1981 Corvette coupe sold for $150,000 and the custom 2010 UFC Camaro coupe brought in $350,000.

Very impressive, well done GM! And good to hear the proceeds are going towards something! Can't wait to see the others roll off the lot!

Also - first ;)

That will be a bad day when they go to trade it in to the dealer next year and are offered 20k for it.:D

Latin_Lingo 09-27-2010 11:20 AM

It was charity enough for the person who won the auction...right?

Cmlloveless 09-27-2010 12:10 PM

Lets see $205,000 or wait a couple a weeks and spend $45,000 give or take.... Hmmm!

mhood 09-27-2010 12:28 PM

I don't suppose you grasped the significance of Peter Griffin's bid of $100,000,000.00 for a vase at a charity auction?

To whomever owns this car, you sir, are awesome.
250,000 for charity is nothing short of astounding.


Cheers to whomever you are! :)

Here's the 350k custom UFC Camaro. All 350k went to benefit the intrepid fallen heroes fund.

I was at the auction and have video of the Vert Camaro being auctioned. I will post later.

RafCon 09-27-2010 12:53 PM

They paid 45k for it too, but will get to write off the remainder for charity. Good to see it go for so much! I'm sure all the charities involved love these car auctions because collectors get what they want and they get a lot of tax deductible money from it too!

Win/Win!

LAWMAN 09-27-2010 01:15 PM

Awesome!...that is alot of change,and probably just that for the winning bidder,pocket change,

Mick 09-27-2010 01:22 PM

Why is it such a hard concept to understand for some people that it was $205K paid for CHARITY? Yes, the high bidder bought the 2nd production ragtop, but anything above and beyond the value of the car itself was a charitable contribution. The long and the short of it is that it was a very generous act by someone who is fortunate enough to do that. Look at it for what it is!

Bethgrce 09-27-2010 01:58 PM

:laughabove:Great point! I know it is alot to pay for a Camaro...but the thought is that the money is for charity! To the person who had the winning bid..KUDOS! Hopefully they will be able to enjoy the car for a little while, before they donate it themselves for another charity! Pay it forward!
I was on an auction committee where this guy bid on a Mustang Convertible, drove it one day after he won the high bid and then turned around and donated the car for another auction! Its all about the charity! Remember that everyone!:mad0260::mad0259:

Ironheadspearo 09-27-2010 02:03 PM

a tax write off....... ie loophole for the fortunate.... nothing against that. I myself have been part of charity auctions. what got me was it was to benefit the YMCA which is not a worthwhile cause if you ask me. the fallen heros or something to benefit cancer or aids would be a better choice if your looking to donate some huge cash. I have worked for the auction of camp boggy creek several times myself, to me that is a worthwhile cause being it allows terminally ill children to go to a camp totally free of charge to the parents and enjoy a week with other children facing the same dire outlook in life. the YMCA is nothing more than a business of which hides behind the guise of being "religious" yet they spend no real dollars to enhance the facility unless it is absolutely needed. what a farce lol
