UNCASVILLE, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/barrettjackson?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#barrettjacksonlt;/agt;–Barrett-Jackson,
The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, and General Motors will
auction the last production C7 Chevrolet Corvette during the 4th Annual
Northeast Auction, June 26-29, 2019, at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. The
last production C7 Corvette will cross the block on Friday, June 28,
with 100 percent of the hammer price benefiting the Stephen
Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
, which supports the nation’s
first responders and catastrophically injured service members.

“We’re honored that General Motors chose our Northeast Auction to sell
this historic Corvette in support of the vitally important Stephen
Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” said Craig
Jackson
, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Where one chapter
ends, another begins. The sale of this final production C7 Corvette Z06
will be the opportunity of a lifetime to own a piece of automotive
history. While it marks the end of an era, it also ushers in the
beginning of the next generation of America’s favorite sports car.”

The last C7 Corvette will be a black Z06 coupe with a 3LZ trim level to
provide the ultimate sport and luxury experience. Powered by a 6.2-liter
supercharged V8 producing 650 horsepower mated to a 7-speed manual
transmission, this extraordinary Corvette will also feature a custom
leather-wrapped interior package, Performance Data Recorder, navigation
and Brembo brakes.

“Barrett-Jackson and General Motors made history when we sold the
first-production C7 Stingray in 2013,” said Steve
Davis
, president of Barrett-Jackson. “During our Northeast Auction
in June, we’ll close the chapter on the current generation Corvette with
the sale of the last C7 Z06 that will be built by General Motors. I
can’t think of a better way to usher in a new generation of Corvette
than with the entire hammer price benefiting our nation’s bravest
heroes.”

The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation was established in 2002
to honor the memory of Stephen Tiller, a New York City firefighter who
lost his life on 9/11. The goal of the Foundation is to continue
Stephen’s legacy through its programs that support our nation’s first
responders and catastrophically injured military service members.

“General Motors and Chevrolet are proud to honor and support the brave
men and women of our Armed Forces,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president
of U.S. sales and service. “With the proceeds from the auction of this
Corvette, we’ll offer additional financial support for our most severely
wounded veterans through the Building For America’s Bravest program.”

Building for America’s Bravest is a program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel
to Towers Foundation that builds smart homes for catastrophically
injured service members returning home. Each home is custom designed to
address the unique needs of each individual. Energy efficient, automated
and easily accessible, these homes use “adaptive technology” to help
severely injured heroes live better, more independent lives.
