GM Grows Camaro Legend Before Charity Auction for Z/28
High-performance versions of GM’s (NYSE:GM) classic muscle car will find owners at auctions benefiting Detroit school children and wounded war veterans. Chevy announced the first 2014 Camaro Z/28 and the first 2014 COPO limited-edition Camaro are hitting the auction block the weekend of January 17 as the legend of the GM muscle car grew over attention from an unrelated Camaro wreck.
The Camaro Z/28, which bested the Camaro ZL1 and Porsche 911 Carrera S at the Nürburgring track, is the fastest retail production Camaro ever to hit a race course. GM will auction the first 2014 model for Detroit Cornerstone Schools in a televised event by Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale held January 18. It bears an identification number ending -0001.
On Friday, January 17, Chevy is also auctioning the first 2014 COPO limited-edition model Camaro to benefit Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans at Barret-Jackson, the automaker said in a statement. A Camaro display will showcase the performance parts and features at the auctions. The events are capping off a week when a bizarre Camaro story out of Delaware hit GM with an unexpected PR nightmare.
