Camaros for Causes Raise $1.35 Million for Charity

Chevrolet Camaro Z28 600x398 at Camaros for Causes Raise $1.35 Million for Charity

The most recent Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, was a remarkable event. They sold the first retail 2015 Mustang, which raised $300K for JDRF, and after that they auctioned two new Camaros, which sold for a staggering $1.35 Million.

The cars involved in the Camaros for Causes campaign included the first production units of the 2014 COPO Camaro, and the first Z/28 Camaro.

The COPO Camaro turnkey dragster went under the hammer boasting a LS 350 V8, a Whipple 2.9 liter supercharger, and bespoke dragster suspension system. It went for $700,000, all of which will benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.

The first production unit of the 2014 Camaro Z/28 was another hit, going for $650,000. The buyer of this car was the famed NASCAR mogul and GM car collector Rick Hendrick. He also bought the first production Corvettes when they hit the block last year. The proceeds from the sale of this Camaro will go Detroit’s Cornerstone Schools.

Camaro Z/28 is a track-focused version of the muscle car, powered by a 505 horsepower V8 engine and featuring Brembo brakes, sophisticated suspension system, semi stripped-out interior, and a bespoke aero kit designed specifically for this car.
