Default Poll: How Much Will C7 VIN 0001 Fetch at Barrett-Jackson?

Click the image to open in full size.

VIN 0001 if officially going up for sale. So how much will it go for? The first SRT Viper garnered a paltry—ha ha—300k when it hit the block in June of 2012. But when the first 2013 427 was offered to the crowd last January, it went for double that, commanding a cool 600k. That seems to indicate the C7 should fetch a pretty penny. But just how pretty is that penny?

$250,000 is my guess though it might well go double that since it's raising money for charity.

Doesn't 250k or more cover all the options you provided?

Thanks—I was never very good with numbers. Ha ha. I've edited the poll to make me look less mathematically challenged.

based on the first SRT viper going for 300K a few months ago for charity Im gonna guess atleast 500K as the vette heritage is more iconic. I guess it depends who wants it really as it could indeed top 1 mil if the right person has to have it. but even then i would be surprised to see it break 750K. on the other hand I didnt know the 427 went for 600K that makes me think more. Will be watching though i think its between 8-9est Saturday night last i heard

Didn't ZR1 #1 fetch $1M? C7 #1 can definitely match that, I think.

Hmmm, since Dan Akerson is also auctioning his '58 Vette off for charity at the same auction, maybe he will bid for the first C7. I'm guessing $500k.

I expect it will go for at least 1 million especially if Jay Leno gets in.

I'm saying $1mil.
More interesting is who will get it? Leno, Hendrick, Dave Hessler? Not sure of the last name but he bought a bunch of significant Vettes over the years and he's always there with plenty of cash. Will be fun to watch.

Not for the types that will be bidding it isnt. There's plenty of money out there, and plenty of folks that could use a tax deduction in these times...especially this year
