Last C7 Sells For 2.7 Million At Barrett-Jackson

Enthusiasts always enjoy a good charity run, and the folks at Barrett-Jackson understand the appeal, and the star-power that a great charity can enjoy. That is why they work with charitable organizations from a variety of locations, to help forward their cause and tap into the energy that such offerings can employ. Two other charity vehicles crossed the block during its Northeast Auction, and to date, Barrett-Jackson has raised over $118 million for various charities.

We told you about the Last C7 being offered at auction to benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun. On Friday, the last-built seventh-generation (C7) Chevrolet Corvette made history when Dan Snyder of Dan Snyder Motorsports purchased it for $2.7 million – a new Barrett-Jackson charity sale record by an automaker-donated vehicle. The entire amount raised from the sale of the Corvette benefited the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s Smart Home Program. Mr. Snyder currently had in his collection, the last-production models of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 2017 Dodge Viper, which he purchased at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson auction.

The last C7 will be a black Z06 coupe with Adrenaline Red trim. The car will have a 3LZ trim level, a custom leather-wrapped red interior package that provides the ultimate sport and luxury experience and includes Performance Data Recorder and navigation. Under the hood is an aluminum 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 engine making 650hp at 6,400 rpm, mated to a 7-speed manual transmission.

This donation will build at least five homes for our catastrophically-injured veterans to give them their independence and a better quality of life. – Frank Siller, chairman and CEO of the Stephen Siller Foundation

The foundation builds mortgage-free, accessible smart homes for the most catastrophically-injured service members and helps pay off the mortgages for families of first-responders killed in the line of duty. 85 homes have been built or are under construction to date, and this donation will allow for construction to begin on five new homes.

In the five years GM has held the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation as its national foundation of choice, GM has helped the foundation raise more than $10 million. Which includes $2.2 million raised last year – $925,000 just from the auction of the first production 2019 Corvette ZR1, which was purchased by Rick Hendrick at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale sale.
