Hendrick Picks Up C1 Corvette Prize Pack at Barrett Jackson
Rick Hendrick dished out big money for first production model Corvettes from the years 1955, ’56, and ’57.
It’s good to be the king. But it might be better to be Rick Hendrick.
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.
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.
