Hendrick Pays $800,000 for First Convertible Z06
Anyone who knows anything about Barrett-Jackson Corvettes had to figure NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick would be taking home the first retail model of the convertible Z06.
Remember that first production model of the 2015 Corvette crossing the blocks at Barrett-Jackson that I said we all should chip in to buy? Well, it looks like we would’ve needed to pull together a little under half a million to even be in the running.
You might want to contact your financial advisor and broker if you want to own the first production Z06 convertible because it is no surprise that Rick Hendrick is the odds-on favorite to get it.
Calling all Corvette enthusiasts: Chevy is revving up to auction the first 2015 Corvette Stingray. There’s still hope that Rick Hendrick might pass on this Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas.
Well, you can add the first retail model of the 2015 Corvette Z06 to the coveted car collection of motorsports king, Rick Hendrick. The chairman of the Hendrick Automotive Group paid $1 million for the car at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach, Florida this past weekend. Not that it really should come as a big surprise: Mr. Hendrick, an avid Corvette enthusiast, also paid $1 million for the first production model of the 2014 Stingray last year at a Barrett-Jackson auction.
