The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition VIN 001 and first retail production 2020 Mid-Engine C8 Chevrolet Corvette convertible will cross the auction block during Barrett-Jackson’s flagship Scottsdale Auction March 20-27. One-hundred percent of the hammer price from the hotly anticipated GMC HUMMER EV will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The United Way for Southeastern Michigan will receive the entire sale price of the 2020 C8 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. To date, Barrett-Jackson has raised more than $127 million for more than 130 local and national charitable organizations.

“We are excited to be partnering with General Motors again as they auction two of their most historic and coveted halo vehicles,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The recently introduced GMC HUMMER EV and the mid-engine Corvette represent the cutting-edge technology and design being forged by the American automaker today. The sale of these two vehicles is destined to be among the most anticipated auctions of this year.”

Driven by next-gen three-motor e4WD EV propulsion technology, this Hummer EV offers a GM-estimated 1,000 horsepower with an estimated zero to 60 miles per hour in approximately three seconds; it is capable of charging nearly 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes.

The first retail production 2020 Mid-Engine C8 Chevrolet Corvette convertible delivers 495 horsepower, making it the most powerful production Stingray ever produced. It is powered by the all-new LT2 V8 engine that was transformed to sit lower for improved handling. This vehicle includes the 3LT package, black exterior, black seats with red trim, red seat belts, GT2 seats, 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, rear spoiler, Performance Data Recorder and the Z51 package.
