General Motors is the latest automaker to help raise money for the Haitian Earthquake victims. GM has decided to auction off a limited edition 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z6 at this weekend’s 39th annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction to help raise money for the cause. All proceeds from the sale of this exclusive car will go to the American Red Cross relief fund. Furthermore, GM Foundation also said that it would offer an additional $100,000 cash donation to the Red Cross.
A 7.0-liter V8 powers the car with 505HP. The Corvette features spider design chrome Z06 wheels, Z06 plates, a Stinger-style stripe on the front hood and fascia, chrome exterior badges, and a painted Z06 spoiler and body-color door handles.
The interior is done up in dark Titanium leather and features a special Crystal Red center trim plate. What is more, all 427 units of the limited edition Corvettes were signed and numbered in the center console area by Will Cooksey, the Corvette plant manager who retired in 2006.
We are sure this auction will help raise a lot of money for the benefit of the tragic victims of Haiti.
