2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible teaser – Click above for high-res image gallery
The hammer has fallen on the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible and the Barrett-Jackson crowd broke out their wallets for it. Final price for the drop-top muscle car? $205,000. Being the first person with a new toy costs money and an affluent fan of the bow-tie will be placing one of the earliest examples of the upcoming Camaro convertible in their garage.
General Motors products ending up taking three of the top five sales spots. A 1981 Corvette coupe sold for $150,000 and a custom 2010 Camaro coupe brought in $350,000. A pair of exotic supercars finished one and two as a 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren convertible cost someone $412,500 and a 2008 Bugatti Veyron sold for $770,000. More on that one later...
Is it worth that amount of money to have an early example of a new model like the reborn Camaro convertible? Only time will tell – but we could think of many other ways to spend $205,000, especially in Las Vegas. Regardless, congrats to the new owner, whose family will probably be selling the car at Barrett-Jackson Mars 2060.
