Rick Hendrick Takes Delivery Of First Production C7 Corvette ZR19
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.

He’s gotten about every No. 1 vehicle that Chevy’s made.
800k plus should not go to charity! This is ridiculous!
Why not? Millions of U.S dollars from private entities and citizens go to charity every year! As for myself, I donate every month to four charities. it is a Christian duty to share our wealth to those who need.
First of all its a scam and second it drives the cost of these cars higher then they should be and third the money goes to charities that are corrupt and wasteful!
Don’t believe me go Google corrupt charities. The people who run these charities pray on the giving while putting most of the money in their pockets while only pennies on the dollar go to the cause. All in the name of charity.
Brian first off not al, Charities are corrupt. Some are many are not.
Two it does not drive up th3 price of cars as this is a written tax break for ZgM and Rick.
You keep telling yourself that!
To infinity and beyond as Motor Authority has an article concerning Mercury Marine’s LS-7 derived crate engine makes 750 naturally aspirated horsepower and makes you wonder what type of potential such an engine equipped with the Eaton TVS R2650 supercharger as used in the C7 Corvette ZR1 LT5 engine; one has to think it shouldn’t be difficult getting 900-950 hp.
Be prepared as the C8 will see numbers as high or higher than these.
I have seen several sources leak we could see 1,000 HP in one of the versions. No need for Mercury or anyone else.
ZR1, ready to go into a plastic bag in a climate control garage of other limited-production Douchettes…..
