GM To Auction Off A Special Edition Corvette Z06 In Support Of Haiti Relief

By Auto News Log • January 22nd, 2010

GM has announced that a special edition 2008 Chevrolet Corvette will be auctioned for Haiti relief at the Barret-Jackson Collector Car Auction currently taking place in Scottsdale, AZ. The money earned, plus another $100,000 from GM, will be donated to the Red Cross.

“This is a very good example of the compassion GM employees have,” said Ed Welburn, Vice President of GM Design. He will present the vehicle and start the bidding process at the event.

This Z06 is the last out of a limited edition of 427 cars built for the North American market and is the only 2008 Z06 model to have the Crystal Red Metallic Tint Coat. It is powered by a 7.0-liter V8 engine, which develops 505 HP and features spider-design chrome wheels, Z06 plates, Stinger-style stripe on the hood and fascia, chromed exterior badges, painted Z06 spoiler and body color door handles.

The interior has a Dark Titanium leather-wrapped interior and a special Crystal Red center trim plate. Just like all of the 427 limited edition models, it is signed and numbered in the center console by Will Cooksey, the Corvette plant manager, and also boasts 427 hood badges, engine cover emblems and seat and floor mat embroidery.
