For those of you who attended the 2011 Barrett Jackson Las Vegas Auto Auction this past week, you probably know about the special 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 that was successfully auctioned off for roughly $250,000.
The 69th ZL1 produced, it will be the only one finished in the custom Carbon Flash Metallic exterior color. Equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, the 2012 Camaro ZL1 delivers 580 horsepower and over 550 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, as are programmable launch control for achieving glory on the drag-strip, as well as adjustable magnetic shocks for precise handling.
The recipient, whoever he or she is, can pick up their vehicle next spring, and can race down the highway with great satisfaction knowing that proceeds from the sale will be going to the YMCA of Southern Nevada.
For those Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts who missed the Barrett Jackson auction at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas this past week, you can rest easy knowing that Barrett Jackson is holding an equal if not greater Automotive event at Westworld in Scottsdale this coming January 2012. The Scottsdale event takes place over 8 days, including 6 days of auctions, as well as nightlife, fashion shows, drifting, ride ‘n drives, rallies, and demonstrations.
Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts can view and test drive any current production model Chevy at any Phoenix Valley Chevy dealer. Phoenix Valley auto enthusiasts should plan on attending the Phoenix Arizona International Auto Show to learn about the most recent concepts and innovations from Chevy, as well as the rest of the auto industry, taking place at the Phoenix Arizona Convention center over Thanksgiving weekend.
