Saturday night, the first production model of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction for 1.1 million USD.
 
This is a very impressive figure, thinking that the first SRT Viper was sold in June for only 300.000 USD. The winner bidder is Richard Hendrick, a NASCAR team owner and a Corvette collector. All the money paid for the first production unit of the Corvette Stingray will go at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.

"The new Stingray features a modern, dramatic design that will inspire a new generation of Corvette enthusiasts. With the proceeds of the new Stingray going to the CCS, the new Corvette will also help cultivate the next generation of designers who may work on modern, dramatic Chevrolets in the future. In fact more than 170 CCS alumni already work in the GM Design studios" said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design.
