A bidder at the recent Barrett-Jackson sale in Las Vegas paid $205,000 for a yet-to-be produced 2011 Camaro convertible that is slated to roll off the line early next year.
The winning bidder’s car will be the second production Camaro drop-top built, and the owner will have his or her choice of color, drivetrain and options. (At that price, it’s probably safe to say production Camaro number two will be nicely equipped.) The winning bidder may also choose to take delivery at a dealership in his hometown or at the GM Heritage Center in Detroit.
It’s all for a good cause, as 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale will benefit the YMCA of Southern Nevada. And for you conspiracy alert Hemmings Blog readers, the car that rolled over the auction block at the sale was a prototype of the new Camaro convertible; meanwhile, the first production convertible will be squirreled away for posterity by General Motors. (And perhaps sold at some future Barrett-Jackson auction when the company runs short of cash.)
