Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the work it does to support wounded veterans through the Building for America’s Bravest program, said Chevrolet. The auction will take place on January 20, 2018 and you can bet Rick Hendrick will be among the bidders.
No estimate has been given, but judging by the performance of previous Chevrolet charity auctions – including the ZL1 1LE going for $250,000 and a Corvette Grand Sport netting $170,000 – we’d expect the ZR1 to go for well beyond its $119,995 list price.
After just four laps in the passenger seat, it’s impossible to draw any conclusions other than the new ZR1 is much faster than the already rapid Z06.
How much faster? We’ll have to wait a few months to get behind the wheel of a production ZR1 to find out. However, expectations are now high and we have little doubt, based on this first ride, that even those high hopes could be shredded.
