At a recent event in April, the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 convertible garnered a bid of 1 million dollars! The generous donation will be geared toward an incredible charity, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
“Through the generous support of GM, Chevrolet and Barrett-Jackson, we raised a significant amount of funds and awareness of our TQRP initiative, which provides opportunities for students of color in the K-12 educational environment and beyond,” said Harry L. Williams, president & CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
Meet the 2023 Corvette Z06
The 2023 Corvette Z06 is an eye-catching vehicle with an intense powertrain under the hood for a thrilling driving experience. The naturally aspirated V8 under the hood offers the highest horsepower rating in a production car.
Combining the $1 million from the April auction with the funds from the January sale of the first retail production of the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition results in a 2022 total of 4.6 million dollars earmarked for charitable contributions.
“General Motors and Chevrolet are honored to support the Thurgood Marshall College Fund on its mission to empower students and educators for success,” said Scott Bell, Chevrolet global vice president.
