First Chevy Corvette Carbon 65 goes under the hammer for a good cause image

Chevrolet just premiered the new limited-edition Corvette Carbon 65 at the SEMA show in Las Vegas and it’s already using it to entice the audience at an upcoming Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction early next year.

Fortunately, they’re doing the live under the hammer event thing for a good cause – because the automaker joined by their parent GM and the George W. Bush Presidential Center, have decided to donate all the proceeds in honor of military members past and present. The 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 edition is a bespoke version of the coupe designed to pay its own homage to the 65th anniversary of the Corvette nameplate, and it’s limited to a mere 650 examples for the entire world.

Among the distinguishable unique features worth mentioning we might count a raft of visible carbon fiber exterior components with a Ceramic Matrix Gray shine, as well as a carbon fiber-trimmed steering wheel. It’s optional as a trim on the Grand Sport and the Z06, and the Corvette Carbon 65 edition isn’t limited to the coupe because you can also go “topless”. The car bound for the auction block is the very first Carbon 65 example, it will be signed by former President George W. Bush, and all the money raised will go to the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative, which caters to veterans.
