Rick Hendrick was (obviously) the top bidder at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, where he dropped $925,000 for the first production 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1. The man with unlimited resources for amazing cars has now taken delivery of his latest prized possession.
Hendrick stopped by the Bowling Green assembly plant on March 14 to see his car roll off the production line with a small ceremony. The car was officially built on March 5, the first day of Corvette ZR1 production. Following the plant ceremony, he visited the National Corvette Museum for photo opportunities with the car on display.
His car is a black-on-black convertible ZR1 with all the bells and whistles. The 3ZR package, competition sport bucket seats, red seat belts, black badge package, eight-speed automatic transmission, the track performance package and much more is all present and accounted for.
The $925,000 sale price benefited the veterans charity Building for America’s Bravest through the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
We’re sure Hendrick is already making space for a future Camaro Z/28 and a C8 mid-engine Corvette.
