First Chevy Corvette Stingray Convertible to be auctioned for charity image

The first unit of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible will be auction for charity, as the North American based automaker has recently announced.

General Motors is following the same path on the brand new Corvette Stingray Convertible as it did on the Coupe, where the first unit of the sports car was also auctioned for charity and the model has managed to gain a whopping 1,1 million USD (820,000 euros). The revenue from auctioning the first Corvette Stingray Convertible will be donated to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute on the 5th of April, so if your bank account allows it, you should check tout this auction.

As a quick reminder, the brand new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible has been officially presented to the public a couple of weeks ago, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere. The model is powered by the 6.2 liter V8 engine, the same one used on the coupe, which is producing a total output of 450 HP and it has a peak torque of 450 lb-ft (609 Nm), mated to a seven-speed manual or to an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than4 seconds.
