The first production 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport made its way to Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction, where it found a new home to the tune of $170,000 this past weekend.
On April 6, 2016, the C7 Grand Sport, a Collector’s Edition painted in Watkins Glen Gray Metallic with Tension Blue hashmarks, rolled across the auction block. In addition to the first production 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport, General Motors also include a two-day driving event at Spring Mountain at the Ron Fellows’ Performance Driving Academy.
But wait, as the late, great Billy Mays would say, there’s more.
GM also tossed in a National Corvette Museum delivery for the vehicle, the most prestigious delivery option at the moment. That is, until Chevrolet opens its delivery unit at the Daytona National Speedway for business.
After the bidding, the C7 Grand Sport went to its home for only $170,000. Yes, that’s a nice sum, but we were surely expecting more from the car. However, the entire hammer price goes to the Karmanos Cancer Research Center for continued development into battling cancer.
The winning bidder, who was no identified to our knowledge, will have the choice of either a coupe or convertible to allow VIN number 001 to come to life.
