I would murder everyone on this site for Carbon Flash Metallic to be a standard color option on the ZL1

I wonder if they will announce the final stats or "ring" time right before the auction to boost up the hype.....

I would be willing to bet that Rick Hendrick already has his waiting for him. As with most of the pre-production versions that they auction, they will probably say before the bidding that you will be the first regular consumer to recieve yours. That is what they did for the honor and valor edition a year or so ago. Rick alredy had his lined up and they announced that you would recieve the first one available to the general public. But you would still get a very low production number after the GM execs and Rick. Unless the one he has lined up is not this color and he really really wants this color.

Agree with you. Those saying .5 Mill are crazy. This is a production car with a different color on it. Period. Obviously it has an instant collector value over the offered colors. But not hundreds of thousands just for the paint. Maybe if they produced 69 of these with LS9 engines and 700 hp.


Great move by GM or whoever is raising the money for the YMCA! Hope they get a big bid.

Wonder who's getting the other 68 ZL1's before this one?

Car in the pictures is a pre-production model, not the actual car the winner of the auction gets. The car that will cross the block will most likely meet an unpleasant demise in a crusher.


Of course, when I say 'winner of the auction', I mean Rick Hendrick.
