Something big is coming to the 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ. You can already read the (mostly) complete roster of vehicles that will be up for grabs at the annual event, and each item on the docket offers complete information as to year, make, model and a full description of the item.

But then there's lot No. 3016: Not a single bit of information is given, except that the vehicle is a Chevrolet, and that it's a "piece of Chevy history." All proceeds from this "special Chevrolet model" will be donated to the Center for Creative Studies, and the auction takes place at 8:30 PM on Saturday, January 19.

This wouldn't be the first big model to be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson event. Back in June, the first production 2013 SRT Viper was sold for $300,000, and General Motors has historically used the event to auction off and even debut special edition Corvette models. Given the fact that the Viper auction netted just over $200,000 more than the car's list price, a similar auction with the highly anticipated C7 Corvette could bring in some seriously big bucks.

We'll be seeing the 2014 Corvette for the first time on January 13 – the night before the first press day of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and the Barrett-Jackson auction takes place just six days later.

      The Center for Creative Studies became the College for Creative Studies a few years ago.

      Sounds like a familiar idea...I think they're just trying to find as many ways as possible to one-up the Viper.

        They also did the same thing for the first ZR1 and first Z06 Carbon, and I'm sure other high end cars I don't remember.

        GM has done stuff like this several times. Honestly i dont think GM needs to try hard at all to upstage viper. the heritage of corvette is rivaled by few

        Says "VIPER94". Like montegod said, they have done this with a lot of Corvette launches. Given the vette sales volume and racing success, I doubt they care about one-upping the Viper every chance they get. Insecure much about the car you like?

          " I'm confident in my favorite car. It's fast, great looking, has great history, great build quality and materials, and has a great group of people behind it." No argument there but no, I don't think they're trying to beat the Viper. I like both cars but there's no call for bringing up the Viper in response to this article. Doing so in the way you did just reeks of fanboyism.

          GM is run by egos, I'm confident in my favorite car. It's fast, great looking, has great history, great build quality and materials, and has a great group of people behind it. It's the Corvette fans that have probably been feeling insecure ever since they released the knew Viper back in April. I'm not dissing on the auction either, I think its a great charity opportunity. I'm just pointing out coincidences here. But c'mon, you really don't think they're secretly trying to beat the Viper's auction price?

      Those wheels are awful. I hope they get the rear end of this car right. It's the one thing I'm concerned about. The rest looks good from what I can tell.

      Just because it's getting introduced in Detroit doesn't mean it's ready for sale. There's no way there's a sale-ready car to take to Scottsdale. If they're going to sell off the first one, it's going to have to be the promise of getting the first one. More likely scenario: the first one is sold by B-J, but at next year's auctions.

        They have sold first built cars before. Your statement of it being a promise of serial number one is correct. They did that with the first new Camaro built.

      The Corvette Action Center predicted a while ago that they would auction off the very first 2014 C7 Corvette: http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/wheelspin/132985-november-2012-how-much-would-you-pay.html
