Chevrolet continues the nice American tradition of auctioning off the first production units of new models for Charity with Camaros for Causes campaign. The first 2014 COMO Camaro and Z28 models will be offered at this week’s Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction. If you can’t make it there, they accept bids online too.
The COPO Camaro turnkey dragster will be the first one to go under the hammer, featuring serial No.1 for 2014, an LS-based supercharged 350-cubic-inch engine and a one-off COPO Ice Blue Metallic satin paint scheme. The auction will be aired on Fox Business News, and the proceeds will benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.
The first 2014 Camaro Z28 will be next, carrying vehicle identification number ending in 0001, and boasting a 505 horsepower 7.0L LS7 engine, close-ratio six-speed manual transmission, and lots of track-focused features that make it one of the quickest muscle cars ever made. The Z28’sa sale will benefit Detroit’s Cornerstone Schools.
“Chevrolet is excited to offer these two milestone cars for the Barrett-Jackson bidders, with all the proceeds going to help a pair of very worthy groups,” said Jim Campbell, General Motors U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.
