First Z/28 crushes new Mustang at Barrett-Jackson auctionTue, 21 Jan 2014
The Scottsdale auctions are full of high-rollers making high-profile bids on classic and modern cars. As such, there was a ton of buzz circling the first retail 2015 Mustang and what it would ultimately sell for -- it ended up crossing the block at $350,000. But it was the first retail 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 that proved to be the dark horse at Barrett-Jackson.
The 2014 Camaro went for an astounding $650,000, almost doubling the Mustang's price. The lucky serial number 0001 Camaro was purchased by Rick Hendrick, owner of NASCAR's Hendrick Motorsports and several Chevy dealerships. If you think $650K is a lot of paper to shell out on a car, consider that the very first 2014 Chevy COPO Camaro sold at the same auction for $700,000.
Bowties are hot in Scottsdale this year.
