Video of Camaro ZL1 at Barrett Jackson. Sells for $250k to Rick Hendrick


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE.


A unique one-off 2012 Camaro ZL1 was auctioned off tonight at the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction in Las Vegas, NV. This particular model will be the only 2012 Camaro ZL1 in Carbon Flash Metallic. It will also feature a VIN that honors the original ZL1’s – a VIN ending in 00069. Only 69 of those first ZL1’s were produced in the 1969 model year. All proceeds from the auction’s sale will benefit the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

The winner was Rick Hendrick with a bid of $250,000!


Sorry for the quality. I don't have a DVR. So this is the best I could do.

FIXED.

That was nothing to him... a tax write off. He can now write of $200,000 or so. When you have that much money you have to spend it or Uncle Sam gets it...

Whats not to believe with Rick Hendrick involved anything is possible and buyable when it comes to Camaros and Corvettes. The outcome was known as soon as this was announced. Am I the only one that wants one of those kool ZL1 Hats & Shirts they were wearing? Hurry up Chevymall.com and put some Camaro ZL1 shirts and clothing up in time for Christmas!

That was not the actual vehicle Hendrdick will get. It was a Prototype and only reprsentative of what he would get.

So, none of what you saw was final.... all the potential changes we all know about might be on the final vehicle... such as cold air intake scoop etc etc etc

God that's a beautiful car...that angle from the top is amazing. Really cool how under the hood was red. Really curious if that's because of the whole "SS turned ZL1 for testing" or what. I noticed the one in the video on the Chevrolet site had it as well. Might be cool if that was an option on certain colors. Who knows.

All proceeds from this auction went to the YMCA which is a non profit organization which you can write off on your taxes.

He can only write off the difference of what the ZL books out for and what he paid for the car. so, If msrp is 60k and he paid 250k, he can write off 190k

Speaking of write offs, his race team could write off as in wreck a 50K cup car every weekend for ten months out of the year and not bat an eye.

50K?

I don't think it's that cheap.

Does anyone know what a Nascar Cup car roughly costs?

Hell the engine alone can go for above 50k. Last I remember seeing it cost upwards of 150k+ for the car.

The reason that the underside and engine compartment is red is because this the Victory Red ZL1 that was introduced at the Chicago Auto Show in April with the polished wheels, no sunroof and manual transmission. They wrapped the car in a Carbon Flash paint color for the auction. After the auction is over they will peel the carbon flash color off and send it to it's next display location. I know because I was there and saw the car myself and spoke with Chevy reps at the ZL1 display. The car in my avatar, is the car hiding under the Carbon Flash wrap.

We all guessed Rick Hendrick would buy it or Leno! But I think the first ZL1 will sell for a lot more!

Just like you giving to your favorite charity, you can claim that on taxes. Each year I give clothing, articles and other things to Goodwill and I can claim it on my taxes. Business expenses have been around forever. You take a person to lunch and talk a little about your business or product you write that lunch off as a business transaction. Rick will right that money off and more than likely have the ZL1 he gets sitting in his showroom for a period of time and either keep it or sell it to the highest bidder one day but rest assured, HE'LL BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO GET ONE WHEN THEY ROLL OFF THE LINE, I DON'T CARE WHEN YOU ORDERED! As they say, Money talks and walks!
