Rick Hendrick has now shelled out almost $4 million on a quartet of first edition C7s.
The C7 Corvette has spawned the Stingray Coupe and Convertible, as well as the Z06 and Z06 Convertible. NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick now owns the first edition of all four. He completed the set over the weekend, after a bid of $800,000 was enough to take home the Corvette Z06 Convertible from the Barrett-Jackson auction, held in Arizona. As with the previous sales, 100% of the money will go to charity, in this case United Way.
Having styled the previous three first-edition Vettes in black with a red interior, Chevrolet decided to offer the droptop Z06 in the same combination, safe in the knowledge Hendrick would provide the winning bid. And he didn’t disappoint.
