Chevrolet announced the first production 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary edition will be heading to the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction for charity, but it’s not going alone. The first production 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport will also be present.
The brand announced serial number 001 will be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson to benefit the Karmanos Cancer Institute, in which General Motors has a long standing relationship with. Last year, the automaker raised $200,000 for the center by auctioning off the first 2016 Cadillac CT6. All proceeds will go directly to the cancer center.
The 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport will be VIN 001, and a collector’s edition, which warrants the Tension Blue hashmarks and Tension Blue interior scheme. A three-dimensional representation of the original Grand Sport is also embossed in the headrests, gauge cluster and on the instrument panel to signify its build number.
The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach will send off the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport on April 8, 2016 at 6 p.m. Eastern. Much like the 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary edition, the Corvette should have no problem finding a loving owner.
