The same guy who bought the first Corvette Stingray coupe is now the owner of the first production Stingray Convertible.
Like its coupe counterpart, the first production 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible will surely become a highly prized collectible and there are plenty of people willing to pay top dollar for it. It was previously predicted that the car would easily go for $1 million and, truth be told, that just happened. The first Corvette Stingray Convertible just sold for $1.05 million at the Barrett-Jackson auction this past Friday – to the same guy who bought the first 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe back in January at the auction house's Scottsdale event.
NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick is now the owner of two 2014 Corvette Stingrays, costing him a grand total of $2.15 million. Proceeds from this latest sale will benefit a charity, this time the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. The Stingray Convertible present on stage for the auction was a preproduction prototype, so Hendricks will have his choice of color and other packaging options when production begins later this year.
