First Chevy Corvette Stingray Convertible Fetches $1M at Auction

If you thought the all-new Chevy Corvette Stingray Convertible might be a bit out of your budget, well, don't even think about getting it at auction. The very first production-ready Corvette Stingray Convertible fetched a massive $1M at last night's Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach. The man behind the money was none other than NASCAR owner Rick Hendrick, who you may remember already owns the first Corvette Stingray Coupe ever produced (which he also paid $1M for).

The good news is, all the proceeds of both of these million dollar 'Vettes are going straight to charity. Funds from the coupe are heading to the College for Creative Studies automotive design program, and from the convertible, money is going to the Ann Karmanos cancer institute. A very good cause indeed. Stay tuned for our full coverage of the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction. Source: Barrett-Jackson Photo Credit: Copyright 2013 BoldRide
