Barrett-Jackson’s Fall Auction took place in Scottsdale over the weekend and those bidders in attendance were in the mood for buying new Corvettes as this after-action report will show.
On the docket for one of the charity auctions was a 2020 Corvette Stingray with 100% of the proceeds going to the Heartstrings Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides guitars to Veterans and active-service military personnel for helping deal with PTSD, suicide, and other mental health issues. According to Barrett-Jackson, HeartStrings also donates guitars to music therapy programs, children’s hospitals, first responders, transitional housing for battered women, drug cessation programs, and other non-profit organizations throughout the country.
Covered in beautiful Shadow Gray Metallic with Adrenaline Red interior, this 2020 Corvette is well-optioned with a 3LT trim package, Z51 Performance Package, Spectra Gray Trident Wheels, and a carbon flash painted High Wing spoiler. Also included with the Corvette was a guitar signed by a number of notable country music artists, including Chris Lane, Devin Dawson, Hardy, Chuck Wicks, Andy Albert, and members of the groups Parmalee, The Band Camino and Boys Like Girls.
The 2020 Corvette was hammered sold for $370,000 with the lucky winner also receiving a two-day Corvette Owner School course at Spring Mountain and 50 guitars will also be donated by the Heartstrings Foundation to the winner’s charity of choice! Sounds to me like everyone wins with this great charity auction.
Another 2020 Corvette Stingray was also offered as a traditional no-reserve auction at the Fall Event. This was a Torch Red Stingray with Black racing stripes and the Adrenaline Red leather interior and it had just 686 miles on the odometer. Other options featured on the car include the High Wing, Engine Appearance Package with a Red engine cover, Carbon Flash mirrors, and the interior Carbon Fiber Trim Package. According to Barrett-Jackson, it set a new world record at auction for a non-charity sale with a hammer price of $125,400. With commission, the total sales price would be $137,500.
With the Fall Event now over, Barrett-Jackson has concluded their auction calendar for the year. The next event is Barrett-Jackson’s 2021 Scottsdale auction to be held January 16-24th.
