That's a cool find, thanks for posting it. Anybody have any ideas how much it'll go for, or who (famous person) (Jay Leno?) might make a move for it?

1st 2010 Camaro to be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson

FROM Autoblog/Motor Trend

"Bidding for the first retail production 2010 Chevy Camaro is set to begin in Prime Time on Saturday, January 17, 2009 at the Barret-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. A similar move was made last year when the first production Corvette ZR1 managed to rake in an astounding one-million dollars. Like that ZR1, all proceeds will be given to charity, in this case, the American Heart Association, so anything over the car's list MSRP will be tax deductible, which is nice.

Regular production of Chevy's new pony car won't begin until a month after the auction takes place, so the Camaro on display in Scottsdale won't be the actual unit being bid on. We're still awaiting official details, like if the Camaro – lot number 1316 for those interested in bidding (go for it, it's for charity!) – is a base model (seems unlikely) or a fully loaded SS model, complete with a 422-hp small block V8. Of course, the big question is how much it'll bring, and we'll be sure to have that figure for you as soon as the gavel falls."

I need to watch this!!

Stuff like this sets (can set) the tone for what the fair market value is of new cars...it will be interesting to watch/see the final price!

I'd guess it will go for ~300k.

No it doesn't. The first one is always grotesquely overpriced when purchased by some billionaire at Barrett-Jackson. The first ZR-1 selling for a million dollars certainly did not have any effect on the market price of other ZR-1s.

Nope. The 1st Shelby GT was sold for 600,000 dollars and you can currently get a used one for about 23K. It's the charity attached to the car that people are bidding all this money for,not so much the car. The ZR1 was for the United Way. I think the Camaro will go for 200-300K.

If the economy doesn't drastically change, I think it will go for 2-300k. The first Challenger last year went for 400k I think and Craig Jackson bought it himself. He'll probably buy the Camaro also, with the charity factor, its a write-off for him and he looks the "good" guy.

OK guys (or gals)...I said...can set...meaning if it goes for a crazy number then the fair market value will be higher.

I didn't mean it would set it at what ever it goes for...simply meaning based on past cars like you've both have mentioned, it will increase the fair market value.

No different the the ZR1 sitting at my dealer right now that has, and it's even on the sticker on the windshield, "FAIR MARKET VALUE ADDED: $40,000!

The car's MSRP is $116,000 and with the add on, the price is $156,000.

...or remember when the Shelby GT500 came out and they were going for $60K - $70K...people see the auction, realize it's a hot car and if willing to pay, people pay the price (the added market value).

Sorry...don't mean to rant but I don't think I said it will...(can set) is what I said...meaning it will go for more than MSRP and I think there is even proof here in a thread about dealers asking for more than MSRP.

~end rant~

I love watching the Barrett-Jackson auctions, and I haven't missed watching them for the last 7 or 8 years. They're fun, but the auction is for people with more money than brains. If you can afford to bid in that arena, you do get a good car don't get me wrong, but you adding alot to the bid just for the atmosphere and cache of doing it on the Barrett-Jackson auction instead of some other auction not televised nationally or with all the famous people hanging around.

I went to the Arizona auction last year and the cool thing is that there are hundreds and hundreds of private party sale cars there.

I live less than 1/2 mile from where the Barrett - Jackson auction and I must admit that the thousands of hot rods and custom cars that come though our area duing that time of year is really cool. I have been to most of the auctions and they are really cool and good family fun.... sometimes its a little pricey but I couldn't care how much because its a once a year thing and its just so awesome.

Ps I think the new camaro at auction will bring 1.5Million

From the LETTERS section in the February 19, 2007 issue of AutoWeek:

When the Barrett-Jackson auction was first televised, it was like an automotive This Old House: an interesting assortment of old cars lovingly restored. Now it is an automotive Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Who wants to sit around watching two guys bid a Shelby GT350 to $250,000? Like we should cheer as these investors push the cost of all collector cars through the roof.

Well, Jay DOES already have the serial number 001 ZR1 Corvette.

And no, not the LeMans Blue one, that was a special one-off. Jay's is Cyber Grey.

Hmmm.........
