Chevrolet Auctions Two Chevy Corvettes at Barrett Jackson to Benefit Military Veterans

The 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe signed by President Ge

The 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe signed by President George W. Bush was bought by John Staluppi, owner of Atlantic Automotive Group, for $1.4 million. The proceeds will benefit the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative.

Elizabeth City, NC – Chevrolet recently auctioned two first production Chevy Corvettes at Barrett-Jackson for the benefit of military veterans, raising $2.325 million in charitable donations.

First up on the block was the Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition, signed by President  George W. Bush. The Vette was purchased by John Staluppi, owner of Atlantic Automotive Group, for $1.4 million. The proceeds will benefit the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative. The primary goal of the Military Service Initiative is to ensure post-9/11 veterans and their families make successful transitions to civilian life with a focus on gaining meaningful employment and overcoming the invisible wounds of war.

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, the fastest, most powerful production Chevy Corvette ever built, was bought by Rick Hendrick, chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group and owner of 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports, for $925,000. The auction proceeds will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the work it does to support wounded veterans through the Building for America’s Bravest program.

“GM 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. “Thanks to the generosity of two of our dealers, John Staluppi and Rick Hendrick, we will be able to offer additional support to some of our most severely wounded veterans through the Bush Center Military Service Initiative and the Siller Foundation Building for America’s Bravest effort – both extremely worthy organizations.”

With more than 6,000 veterans employed at GM and more than 50,000 GM retirees who are veterans, both GM and Chevrolet are proud to help those who have given so much for the country.

2019 Corvette ZR1 Unveiled by Chevrolet

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

The fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever – the 755-horsepower 2019 ZR1.

Elizabeth City, NC — Last week the 2019 Corvette ZR1 was unveiled by Chevrolet and is described as a supercar with the highest power, greatest track performance and most advanced technology in Corvette history.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 is powered by a 755 horsepower LT5 6.2L V8 supercharged engine that delivers the highest output ever for any Chevrolet production vehicle. The LT5 delivers the highest output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle, thanks in part to a new, more-efficient intercooled supercharger system that offers 52 percent more displacement than the Z06’s LT4 supercharger.

Seven-speed manual and eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmissions are available with the LT5. It’s the first time an automatic transmission has been offered in a ZR1.

The ZR1 will offer two wing packages: a standard rear Low Wing, which delivers the highest top speed, and an available two-way-adjustable High Wing that offers about 60 percent more downforce than the Z06 with the available Z07 Performance Package.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

The Corvette ZR1 introduced in Dubai also debuted a dynamic, available Sebring Orange Design Package.

  • Off-road suspension

  • Special Z71 badges on the doors
  • A spray-in bedliner (black, of course)
  • And black Chevrolet bowties for the front and rear.

“The Silverado 1500 Midnight was very well received by our customers in 2015,” said Kevin Burton of Performance Chevrolet. “Offering the combination of off-road equipment with a bold, black appearance in three Z71 Midnight Special editions is sure to be a big hit again this year.”

Other special-editions available for 2016 include the Silverado Realtree®, Silverado Special Ops, and Colorado Trail Boss, with additional models to be announced later this year.

New 1LE Packages Elevate Camaro Track Capabilities

2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE performance package

Elizabeth City, NC – The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE performance package returns for 2017, poised to set new benchmarks for attainable track performance.

The package builds off the success of the previous-generation 1LE, offering Elizabeth City-area drivers increased handling and track performance. In response to customer demand, Chevrolet will offer two distinct 1LE packages, for both V6 and V8 models, each visually distinguished with a satin black hood, specific wheels and more.

“Our customers, especially performance enthusiasts, will appreciate everything that the 1LE performance packages have to offer,” said Javon Shannon, Certified Sales Professional of Performance Chevrolet. “It further elevates the Camaro by delivering increased power, agile handling and driver-focused technologies.”

For the first time, the 1LE package will be available on Camaro 1LT or 2LT coupes equipped with the 3.6L V6. Featuring more aggressive suspension tuning, standard Brembo brakes and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, the LT 1LE delivers drivers an estimated 0.97G in cornering grip. Available Recaro seats will keep you planted through the corners, and an available Performance Data Recorder will allow [INSERT CITY/TOWN]-area drivers to view and share their track experience.

The new 1LE package for Camaro 1SS models includes magnetic ride control, with a new FE4 suspension tuning and a new, segment-exclusive electronic limited slip differential (eLSD). Paired with massive Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, lateral acceleration will exceed 1G. Additional features available on the 1LE package include standard Recaro seats and a Performance Data Recorder (PDR), new to the Camaro lineup.

As a result, the 1LE package elevates the award-winning performance that earned Camaro the 2016 Motor Trend Car of the Year and Car and Driver 10Best awards.

“The Camaro 1LE packages follow a recipe any track-day enthusiast will appreciate,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “Start with a lightweight, stiff structure and then add higher levels of suspension stiffness and damping, more aggressive tires, higher downforce, more powerful brakes and more cooling.

“The result delivers better performance in all measures,” said Oppenheiser. “In our development tests, the V-6 Camaro 1LE delivers lap times comparable with the previous-gen V-8 model. The 2016 Camaro SS 1LE sets the new benchmark for the segment, lapping the Big Willow track at Willow Springs three seconds faster than the standard Camaro SS.”

The new 1LE packages will be available in late 2016 at Performance Chevrolet, on 2017 Camaro SS and LT V-6 coupes equipped with manual transmissions. Pricing and performance data will be announced at a later date.

Camaro LT 1LE

The Camaro LT 1LE was developed to be the most track-capable sports coupe in its price class. Highlights include:

  • 3.6L V-6 rated at 335 horsepower and matched with the six-speed manual transmission
  • FE3 suspension components (from the Camaro SS), including dampers, rear cradle mounts, ball-jointed rear toe links and stabilizer bars
  • Lightweight 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 245/40R20 front tires and 275/35R20 rear tires
  • Brembo 4-piston front brake calipers
  • Mechanical Limited-slip differential with 3.27 ratio
  • Standard track-cooling package, with engine oil, differential and transmission coolers
  • Suede steering wheel and shorter-throw shifter
  • Standard dual mode exhaust system
  • Camaro SS fuel system for higher-load cornering capability
  • Satin black hood, front splitter and unique three-piece rear spoiler
  • Unique high flow upper and lower grille with satin black accents
  • Available Recaro seats and PDR video/data recording system.

“With a curb weight under 3,500 pounds, excellent front-to-rear weight balance and the precision of the FE3 suspension, the Camaro LT 1LE offers unmatched capability in its class,” said Oppenheiser. “As a result, it offers incredible performance for Camaro V-6 customers.”

Camaro SS 1LE

The 2017 Camaro SS 1LE introduces the new FE4 suspension to the Gen Six Camaro – a performance-oriented chassis system with specific tuning for the Magnetic Ride dampers, springs and stabilizer bars. Additional highlights include:

  • 6.2L LT1 V-8 rated at 455 horsepower, and six-speed manual transmission (automatic transmission not available)
  • Magnetic Ride Control
  • Segment-exclusive electronic limited-slip differential with 3.73 ratio
  • Unique forged aluminum wheels with 285/30ZR20 front tires and 305/30ZR20 rear tires
  • Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires with a compound and construction developed exclusively for the Camaro – offering exceptional grip on the track
  • Brembo brakes with new six-piston monobloc front red calipers – featuring the 1LE logo – and two-piece rotors. Measuring 14.6 inches (370mm) in diameter, the front rotors are 7 percent larger than Camaro SS
  • Track-cooling package, with engine oil, differential and transmission coolers
  • Suede steering wheel with shorter-throw shifter
  • Dual mode exhaust system
  • Recaro front seats with aggressive bolsters optimized for shifting and steering comfort
  • Satin black hood, front mirrors and unique three-piece rear spoiler
  • Satin Graphite front splitter and rear diffuser
  • Available PDR video/data recording system.

FAST FACT: The 1LE package was developed in 1988 to make the Camaro more competitive in Showroom Stock road racing series and officially debuted in 1989. Four examples were reportedly built in 1988; with 111 built in 1989. The 1LE package was also featured on fourth-gen vehicles through the 1999 model year, returning to the fifth-gen Camaro in 2013.
