- The first 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will cross the auction block this weekend, just days after the car's formal debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
- Proceeds from the sale of the 2014 Corvette Stingray will benefit the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
- The Corvette sale is set for January 19.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
The Corvette sale is set for January 19. It is part of the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction.
The College for Creative Studies is known for its automotive design program.
"With the proceeds of the new Stingray going to the CCS, the new Corvette will also help cultivate the next generation of designers who may work on modern, dramatic Chevrolets in the future," said Ed Welburn, GM vice president of global design, in a statement on Wednesday.
Bids for the car can be submitted in person at the auction or online at Barrett-Jackson.com.
Four other Chevrolets will cross the block at the Barrett-Jackson sale. They include General Motors' CEO Dan Akerson's 1958 Corvette, the 2012 COPO Camaro convertible, Guy Fieri's 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition and the 2013 Camaro ZL1 Convertible.
Other 2013 Scottsdale charity vehicles include a 2013 Shelby GT500 Cobra Fastback, created as a tribute to the late Carroll Shelby, and a 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch Super Crew pickup owned by President George W. Bush.
Edmunds says: No guess yet on what the 2014 Corvette Stingray will fetch, but it wouldn't be a shock if it commanded top dollar.
