Five Chevrolet performance cars, including the first production model of the 2014 Corvette Stingray raised $2.14 million at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car.
Proceeds will benefit the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Habitat for Humanity Detroit, the American Heart Association, the Guy Fieri Foundation for Inspiration and Imagination and the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.
The 2014 Stingray (with a VIN ending 0001) netted $1.05 million for the charities above. This came just days after the Stingray made its debut at the North American International Auto Show. The car was purchased by NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick, with the proceeds going to the College for Creative Studies.
