Chevrolet announced, as it normally does, that the first production 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 will be auctioned off for charity at Barrett-Jackson. And Rick Hendrick is already making space for the vehicle in his garage.
The first production car will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which helps wounded veterans through the Building for America’s Bravest program. The program is named after a New York City firefighter and first responder who died during the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Chevrolet didn’t mention how the first production car would be specified, but we imagine it will show up with the ZTK performance package, which adds the massive rear wing to provide an estimated 1,000 pounds of downforce. No matter what options adorn it, the car will cross the block with a 6.2-liter supercharged LT5 V8 engine with 755 horsepower.
The car will make its way across the auction block at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale event on January 20, 2018.
