The final 2019 Chevrolet Corvette has officially been sold for a record-breaking amount at Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun in Unvasville, CT. It’s $2.7 million price tag will go directly to charity.
Production of the current C7 Corvette actually hasn’t ended, so the black Z06 shown above is simply a replica of what is scheduled to be the final C7 to roll off its Bowling Green, KY assembly plant. It’s $2.7 million price makes the final C7 the highest-grossing vehicle General Motors has ever auctioned off.
The proceeds of the auction will go to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization that builds homes and pays off mortgages for catastrophically injured service members, and also helps pay off the mortgages for families of first responders killed in the line of duty. The organization says it will be able to build at least five homes with the $2.7 million.
GM has supported the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation in prior vehicle auctions as well.
The C7 Corvette is slated to be replaced by a new mid-engine Corvette, which will be revealed next month.
