First 2014 Corvette to be auctioned off for charity

December 31, 2012 12:00 AM

The Chevrolet Corvette almost always makes waves when it takes to the streets, thanks to its sleek look and top-of-the-line features. Fans of the manufacturer may have something to look forward to in the near future, as there is a mysterious Chevrolet entry in the upcoming Barrett-Jackson auto auction, and the hot rumor surrounding the item involves the new 2014 Corvette.

According to GTSpirit, the 2014 Corvette may be the vehicle behind the vague item numbered 3016, which is only described as "a piece of Chevy history" that will be eventually revealed during the auction. Another possibility would be the Chevrolet Camaro Z28, but it is probably too early for that model to have undergone all of its vehicle maintenance and hit the auction block, making the Corvette a more likely option.

All of the proceeds of the eventual sale will be donated to the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan, AutoBlog reports.

Scottsdale's Barrett-Jackson auction is one of the most popular automobile sales in the U.S., and its January 19 running will feature some of the most sought-after vehicles on the market. In the past, first production models have been sold at the auction to great success, and the Corvette could soon be adding to that tradition.
