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.

      Totally anti Scriptural.

      For a worthy cause.

      I wouldn't even consider this if I were filthy rich. This won't even resell for half that price come 10 years from now.

      Unless this was for a charity benefit, then heck no.

        Duke, I said I wouldn't UNLESS this was for a charity.

        Charity = Yes
        Personal purchase = Heck no

      The proceeds from the 2010 Camaro Convertible sale go to charity, so its a GREAT thing it brought $205,000.

        AB should have mentioned this...it justifies the outrageous price.

        A big tax wright off, a fun toy, and bennefits a good cause (I hope).

      Sad to see someone waste that much money on a car that will be so common.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Exactly. I can see if this was some type of prototype or concept car, but it looks like the same vehicle that will be in rental car fleets next summer.

      1981 Corvette for 150k? Greenwood racer or something? Still, wow.

        looks like it was for 2 corvettes sold as a pair. The proceeds were for charity. One was the first car produced at the bowling green plant and has 14 miles on it. The other was the last produced in St. Louis and has 4 miles.

      Probably not worth that, in and of itself, but weren't most of the high priced ones (including the Camaro convertible) actually charity auctions? That explains the prices....
        • 4 Years Ago
        Most likely for charity. If you've got the money, and you decide to donate this much to charity, it can't hurt to get a decently cool car back along with the tax write off!

        LifeLongCarGuy, he'll get to spec out a car as he wishes.
