First 2009 Corvette ZR1 Sells at Auction for $1,000,000

Corvette ZR1

The first 2009 Corvette ZR1 just sold here on big money day at the big Barrett-Jackson auction for $1,000,000 with a little help from GM's best bud, Jay Leno to Dave Ressler. Although the money is all going to the United Way, we're wondering what this will mean for the markup on the sticker price we'll see for this already $99,000 two-seat supercar. And keep in mind we still don't know what the final number will end up being on horsepower and torque. But — what we do know now is that the sticker price will be $99,000 — thanks to the need to provide the above-and-beyond price for IRS purposes and the charitable deduction. But hey, maybe you'll still get that 100,000 mile guarantee on the powertrain — even if you're buying #1 off the assembly line. Barrett-Jackson
