Chevrolet Auctions off 2014 Camaros

By | January 16, 2014
In an effort to raise money for veterans and education, Chevrolet will auction off the first retail-production 2014 Z/28 and COPO Camaro models. Barrett-Jackson will hold the auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. later this week. Bids will be accepted in person and online at the auction's website. First up on the auction block will be the COPO Camaro with serial No. 1, and it will feature a supercharged 350 engine. A one-off model will be offered in an Ice Blue Metallic satin paint color. All proceeds of this sale will go to benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. Fox Business News will provide live coverage for the auction. "Chevrolet is excited to offer these two milestone cars for the Barrett-Jackson bidders, with all the proceeds going to help a pair of very worthy groups," said General Motors U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports Jim Campbell in a recent statement.
Like the COPO model, the Z/28 Camaro will be the first production model, and will feature a vehicle identification number ending in 0001 and will enter the auction block the following day. Instead of Fox, the National Geographic Channel will be covering the event live, and all proceeds of this sale will benefit Detroit's Cornerstone Schools. Chevrolet also plans to display different models, as well as performance parts that can be added to the production models of both vehicles. For the COPO, the automaker will display drag-racing components for the street and track on the V6 and SS models, while induction and exhaust parts for the Z/28 will also make appearances.
