Carbon Flash Metallic 2012 Camaro ZL1 Up for Auction This Sat. at Barrett-Jackson
 
From fbodfather (note which went out to Chevy dealers this AM):

This Saturday (September 24, 2011) at the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction in Las Vegas, NV, a very unique 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will be offered for auction. This particular model will be the only 2012 Camaro ZL1 in Carbon Flash Metallic. It will also feature a VIN that honors the original ZL1ís Ė a VIN ending in 00069. Only 69 of those first ZL1ís were produced in the 1969 model year. All proceeds from the auctionís sale will benefit the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

The Barrett-Jackson Auction kicks off on Thursday, September 22, 2011. As has been the tradition the last couple of years, the auction will be covered live in primetime on the East Coast by SPEED TV. Since the ZL1 auction will be a centerpiece at this yearís Las Vegas auction, a new :30 second ad featuring the ZL1 will debut during SPEEDís three days coverage of the auction.

The point of the ad is to drive consumers to Chevy.com/CamaroZL1. Once consumers arrive at the site, they will be able to view short films on two different development aspects of the new ZL1. These two new short films will be available on the website sometime during the afternoon of Thursday, September 22, 2011.

If you have a customer interested in the new 2012 Camaro ZL1, you may want to encourage them to visit Chevy.com/CamaroZL1 on Thursday. And if you are interested in owning a very unique 2012 Camaro ZL1, then be prepared to bid Saturday. Although subject to change, the ZL1 is scheduled to cross the block sometime between 8:00 to 10:00 PM, EDT. Visit Barrett-Jackson.com for further details and up to the moment auction timing and results.

Look for further announcements and videos on the Camaro ZL1 in the coming weeks.

That's awesome and it's going to be a thrill to see someone try to outbid Rick Hendrick...I am not missing this one for the world! :thumbsup:

One-of-one...NICE!

How much will it go for? It'll likely be a Fantasy Bid car, as well...

Well, that just about finishes off the contest to see who will own the first ZL1. Radz28 has been saving hard, so he will be tough to outbid. I knew something was up when he had not put down a deposit at a dealership. That sly dog is going to beat all of us to the punch. I want the first ride in your ZL1 Radz !!!

My guess, $125-150,000 :chevy:

OldJedi 09-21-2011 01:01 PM

I would bid on it, but Carbon Flash is not my first color choice.

its a syn 09-21-2011 01:14 PM

will probably keep getting resold to raise more money, have seen that done at some of the specialty cars at this auction. Will be the 5th owner when all said and done!

Joebot8484 09-21-2011 01:19 PM

We should all put our funds together and have camaro5 bid on it hahaha! :laugh:
I will be tuning in for sure.

OldJedi 09-21-2011 01:36 PM

Sorry, I missed the 8:00 to 10:00pm part. I really need to make that eye exam appointment.

Well...let's see...the first ZR1 went for a cool Mil...so I am going to throw my guess into the ring at $425,000. 1 of 1 and the ZL1 moniker are going to drive this one high.

Congrats to the lucky buyer. AND GM...Thanks for helping out a charity. Very Cool.
