Barrett-Jackson, the leader in Automotive Auctions and Classic Vehicles is lucky enough to be auctioning off the first 2009 Corvette ZR1 tonight! We will have full coverage on what the vehicle goes for, as we are monitoring the results live. You can follow along tonight as well by tuning into the SPEED channel’s coverage.
Proceeds from the sale of the ZR1 will go to the United Way for Southeast Michigan. This is not like any other auction tonight either, as Jay Leno will help present the car along with Troy Clarke, the president of GM North America. Representatives from the United Way will also be on hand for the presentation.
Not only will you get the HOTTEST new car around, but you also get the following:
- Delivery of the vehicle at the National Corvette Museum, in Bowling Green, Ky.
- A three-day experience at the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, with renowned Corvette racer Ron Fellows serving as a special instructor
- Tickets to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno
- A personal tour of Jay Leno’s "Big Dog" garage
This year marks the event’s 37th anniversary and will see the auction of more than 1,100 classic cars, muscle cars, hot rods and other collectable automobiles.
