Thumbs up First Retail Production Camaro Z/28 Raises $500k at Barrett Jackson

Correction: Chevrolet dealer David Flynn was the winner of the first retail production Camaro Z/28 at Barrett Jackson.

The winning bid of $500,000 will go to charity for Drive to End Hunger, with which Team Hendrick is involved.

RICK DID NOT WIN THE Z28 IT WAS THE GUY STANDING TO THE FAR LEFT OF HIM.. rick is part of the charity,and that is why he is Holding the check.....it was bidder #466....
But either way the money goes to a good cause....There is no way in heck that Z28 will ever sell on the open market for that price again,it might of been worth 100k-125k at most.

I am guessing those rich guys have figured out a way to record it as a loss and can write of the difference between what it is really worth and what they paid....

The winning bidder was actually Chevrolet dealer David Flynn. Rick is affiliated with the charity, a very worthy cause. Thanks to David for his support!

Holy cow people, they sold the first production 2015! The car shown was a 2014. IMHO, they jumped the gun by selling the first '15 before the first '14 is even delivered.

Thank you. Didn't watch the auction and your post is the first I've heard of it being the first 2015.

Most of the time the car shown at auction is never the car that will be delivered to the buyer...

It may seem that way but,and I know the 2014's have just been released but they are not really jumping the gun,because the 2015 will be out soon.They normally come out the last 6 months of the yr...the 2014 will most likely be a short run,which will give the 2014 some sort of higher value to the nut cases that pay the crazy money...
some 2015 models and brands may be out as early as 30-45 days from now...
Look on the door stickers anything that normally has 6/ as the month will be the next yrs model...so 6/14 on a Z28 should be a 2015/ but for sure a ss with 6/14 is considered a 2015..Edmund's is reporting mid 2014 for the 2015 model release date...
