2010 Camaro Silver SS/RS Barrett Jackson Photos
 
One of the most highly anticipated vehicles to be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson this year was the first 2010 Chevy Camaro. There are very few instant classics these days, and this is one of them. There's still a month before actual series production of the car is slated to begin, but the winning bidder claimed the right to the very first retail production car that can be ordered in any color and with any options he chooses.

Last year, it took exactly one-million dollars to win the hotly contested rights to the first 2009 Corvette ZR1, and this year $350,000 claimed the first edition of the newly-revived Camaro. Just as with last year's ZR1, all proceeds from this Camaro's sale will benefit the American Heart Association, which means that anything over the car's MSRP will be tax deductible by the winning bidder. See the car's official auction description after the break.

First Retail Production 2010 Chevrolet Camaro:

One very passionate Camaro enthusiast at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction will come away with the keys to the first regular retail production-built unit of Chevy's all-new, 21st Century Sports Car. This first Camaro built for regular retail production will have a VIN ending with #100001. Chevrolet ceased production of the fourth-generation of their vaunted sports car in 2002. Four years later, Camaro appeared as a surprise concept vehicle at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The new production Camaro remains steadfastly true to that concept, with an eye-catching design reminiscent of the storied 1969 Camaro, but equipped with modern technology and a GM-estimated 27 MPG highway when equipped with the available V6 engine. Importantly, the winning bidder will have the ability to spec and order their Camaro to their liking, choosing from several colors, V6 or V8 engines, a manual or automatic transmission, and various trim packages and free-flow options.

The vehicle will be built on the first day of retail production -- scheduled for early 2009. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the American Heart Association, a national voluntary health agency whose mission is: "Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke." The association's impact goal is to reduce coronary heart disease, stroke and risk by 25 percent by 2010. Please join GM, Chevrolet, Barrett-Jackson and the American Heart Association in pursuit of this very worthwhile effort, and be the first to own Chevy's 21st Century Sports Car, the 2010 Chevy Camaro.

Awesome pictures. I was just there last night too. Wish I could have went today instead but I had to work. I was leaning on CGM these past couple weeks. But after seeing this Camaro in person and in these pictures... I'm definitely going to stick with my Silver Ice Metallic.

She looks beautiful up on that stage. And I'm glad to see other (non-fans) get excited about it too. :thumbup:

You know, I love this car and soon to be my car, but nowadays there is no such thing as a car becoming a classic. The problem is with massive production. This is going to end up like any other modern car out there. Its going to be driven like any other car until dead. Cars today just arent built the same way and in the same low numbers as before. "Rare" is a rare word to use.

God I love that color scheme...

Makes me debate the black/CGM thing again to go on my silver Camaro.

definitely picked the right colors!!!

Amelia98 01-18-2009 09:27 AM

The very first production car is rare. There is only 1. As for it getting driven, I have a feeling that Rick Hendrick will sit it next to all of his other cars in his huge garage. Lucky SOB. Come on April!!!!!!!!! (I hope)

The 5th gen will be built in way lower numbers than the 1st gens were. In 1969 there were 35k SS's built and 20k Z28's. GM will do well to sell 25k SS's for 2010. And considering the massive growth of auto sales, 25k SS's today represents a much smaller market share than 35k did in 1969.

Yeahhhhh.....they built,like,over 600,000 1st gen Camaros.....now that's what you'd call "massive production".
I love the silver with black stripes,man,i can't stop looking at these pics.

Camaro68 01-18-2009 08:31 PM

great job
 
thanks for putting that up :chevy:

Speedy1975 01-18-2009 08:40 PM

No problem everybody, my pleasure.

I did a higher res version, but to get a nice video with good size ran into about a 100MB file size. That'd take a while for everyone to download and would eat up my bandwidth on the site, so I'm gonna just leave the 11 MB WMV file as it's pretty good quality.

If someone thinks they absolutely have to have a high res copy I can work something out. Just shoot me an e-mail from my site, though there might be some cost involved if I have to mail a CD/DVD out to them.

Well I geuss I saved about 310,000.00 by waiting 6 or so extra months.:laugh:

Sharpe 01-19-2009 01:39 AM

It was unrealistic of me, but I was hoping it would go for more.

Love that color combo.

cosmin haraga 01-19-2009 08:18 AM

I had hoped for a darker shade, as the original model was, but maybe its just the lightning.
Anyway 2lt, rs, silver, no stripes it is.

BlackXIV 01-19-2009 08:37 AM

I was thinking at least 250k. But I couldn't stay up either. I fell asleep watching Blazing Saddles.

The_Blur 01-19-2009 08:40 AM

:coolpics: After seeing the texture of the grill this closely, I may not get the alternate grill. It looks very nice.

I thought the same thing. Looks hard as hell to keep clean.

Nah, won't be bad. I have lots of parts like that on my sport bike and a quick shot of cleaner and a wipe is all it takes and the bike is taking bugs out at tripple digits on a very frequent basis.
