And it will all go to a good cause.
Lexus finally lifted the wraps off the new LC 500 Convertible at the 2019 LA Auto Show, and it's an absolute stunner. Pricing and availability haven't been confirmed yet but expect it to cost more than the $92,300 Lexus LC 500 Coupe.
Next month, the first-ever production 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible will be sold at a Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Florida, where it will no doubt sell for big bucks. One of only 100 Inspiration Series produced, VIN 001 includes exclusive features not found on any other LC 500s, including one-off color accents throughout. All proceeds from the auction will help support the Boys & Girls Club of America and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
This will be one of several cars being auctioned by Barrett-Jackson next month to benefit good causes. The first-ever 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to roll off the production line will be sold to benefit the Detroit Children's Fund after the final C7 generation Chevrolet Corvette sold for an eye-watering $2.7 million at another Barrett-Jackson auction back in June, benefiting the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Also crossing the auction block will be some wild custom-made cars. One of the standouts will be a 1963 Volvo Amazon Custom Coupe that will benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Built and modified by Meg Bailey and Jeff Allen on CNBC's 'The Car Chasers,' the custom car has a 2013 Corvette driveline, 6-piston Baer brakes, a customized lower air dam and dual-mode exhaust. A custom 1974 Ford Bronco built by Gateway Bronco and designed in conjunction with NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney will also benefit the Ryan Blaney Family Foundation.
Other cars being sold at the charity auction include a 1968 Plymouth GTX custom coupe owned by TV personality Chris Jacobs that will benefit the C4 Foundation, a custom 1981 Jeep CJ7 benefiting Make-A-Wish of Arizona, and a 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Winston Cup NASCAR race car in support of the Arizona Animal Welfare League.
