GM to auction first 2015 Corvette Z06 for charity


Last corvette GM aucitoned for charity brought $1 million

GM has announced that it will be auctioning off the very first 2015 Corvette Z06 and all the proceeds will go to charity. The charity receiving the money is the Karmanos Cancer institute. The auction will happen during the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car auction in Palm Beach, Florida on April 12.

GM auctioned off the first 2014 Stingray convertible and the car fetched about $1 million. I would think the Z06 would go for more money than that.

“Chevrolet’s donation of the first 2015 Corvette Z06 produced is yet another way that we are showing our continued support of the Karmanos Cancer Institute,” said Dan Ammann. “The funds raised from the auction will help further the exceptional patient care that Karmanos is known for in our community and across the country.”

The Z06 is one of the best performing Corvette street cars ever made. It has a supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 and a lot of aerodynamic tidbits on the outside of the car. The z06 also has a version with even more aerodynamic bits called the Z07.



“When it comes to corporate citizenship and philanthropy, General Motors and its employees set the example,” said Gerold Bepler, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO, Karmanos Cancer Institute. “Their generosity goes a long way toward improving the lives of cancer patients and supporting cancer research. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to GM, the GM Foundation, Chevrolet and Barrett-Jackson for their ongoing commitment to help end this disease.”
