“We’re honored that General Motors chose our Northeast Auction to sell this historic Corvette in support of the vitally important Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Where one chapter ends, another begins. The sale of this final production C7 Corvette Z06 will be the opportunity of a lifetime to own a piece of automotive history. While it marks the end of an era, it also ushers in the beginning of the next generation of America’s favorite sports car.”

The Corvette itself is a slick black Z06 with the 3LZ trim package, making it an ultra-luxurious variant. It’s powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that’s equipped with a supercharger. 

“Barrett-Jackson and General Motors made history when we sold the first-production C7 Stingray in 2013,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “During our Northeast Auction in June, we’ll close the chapter on the current generation Corvette with the sale of the last C7 Z06 that will be built by General Motors. I can’t think of a better way to usher in a new generation of Corvette than with the entire hammer price benefiting our nation’s bravest heroes.”

“General Motors and Chevrolet are proud to honor and support the brave men and women of our Armed Forces,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. sales and service. “With the proceeds from the auction of this Corvette, we’ll offer additional financial support for our most severely wounded veterans through the Building For America’s Bravest program.”
