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.
