1st Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Will Be Auctioned Off For Veterans

Corvette Carbon 65 auction

The Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition is a racy little number, isn’t it? Thanks to General Motors and the George W. Bush Presidential Center, you now have a chance to become the first owner of the special edition sports car when it goes up for auction at the upcoming Barret-Jackson Scottsdale event this coming January. Proceeds from the sale from the auction will go to the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative, a charity that focuses on supporting post-9/11 veterans and helping them transition back to civilian life. The charity is supported by no less than former US President George W. Bush.

The Corvette Carbon 65 Edition made its debut at the 2017 New York Auto Show in April, created in no small part to Chevy’s motivation to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the legendary sports car. The car itself isn’t a special edition in the traditional sense of the phrase. Instead, the Carbon 65 Edition is a package that can be added to either coupe or convertible versions of the Corvette. The package consists mainly of exterior and interior upgrades, and Chevy is only creating 650 of them. That “numbered” status is a big part of the Corvette Carbon 65 Edition’s appeal, and the fact that the first-of-its-kind is headed to the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction makes this specific model all the more desirable. So is the fact that it will be signed by President Bush himself. That’s an extra shot of provenance for a special edition package that breathes new life into the iconic American sports car.

The C6 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Looks Better With Every Passing Day

Not a day goes by that the C6 Corvette Z06 does not go from good looking to better looking to even more better looking. What a clear, simple visualization of a sports car ideal.

I always admire the Z06, mostly because I am a five-foot-nine dude who looks absolutely and spectacularly ridiculous seated in a big Corvette. I can’t own one. I can drive them, if it’s at night. They’re not my size or my vibe, and are consequently off limits. I leave Corvette ownership to the bigger and brasher humans of this planet.

This does mean I spend a lot of time thinking about Corvettes and staring at them. All of this thinking and staring has led me to the above conclusion: the C6 Z06 is aging really, wonderfully, joyously well.

It’s hard to grasp in pictures just how low and wide they are in person. These Z06s are 3.3 inches wider (thanks to carbon fiber fenders) than the ordinary Corvette on which they’re based. The effect completely transforms the look of the car from retiring, Florida-hogging grandpa to lunging, road-sniffing attack dog.

There’s a little snout on the car, breathing in a little extra air for the 7.0 liter small block under the hood.
