VIN 001 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Up For Auction

On January 18, 2020 one lucky person will not just be ushering in a new decade, but an entire new-era of Corvette with the first ice-engine version ever.

 

This 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the first production mid-engine Vette ever produced and carries VIN 001. With VIN 001 comes a slew of other titles, including that of “most powerful production Stingray” thanks to the 495hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque it’s packing. The power of this mid-engine beast stemming from the 8-cylinder, 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine with a 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission driving the power to the wheels.

 

Given the nature of the car and the fanfare surrounding it, it should come as no surprise that this car is being auctioned at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale for charity. All of the proceeds from the sale will benefit the Detroit Children’s Fund which is an organization dedicated to, “support[ing] the expansion quality schools public schools; the improvement of lower performing schools; the development, retention and recruitment of educators; and city-wide initiatives that support school quality.”
