In last Friday’s auction, General Motors Co. was able to sell the second 2011 Camaro Convertible made for consumer sale at the Barrett-Jackson Car Collector Auction for $205,500. This was quite a high price to be paid for a car that has yet to be seen. What GM brought to Las Vegas was the Camaro Convertible Concept.
GM is still keeping the actual 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible under wraps before the official unveiling. The first Camaro Convertible produced for consumer sale will be used by GM “for historical purposes.”
The amount raised at the auction for this model will be given to the YMCA of Southern Nevada, an organization which seeks to “promote healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility.” Camaro enthusiasts had an eyeful at the auction as there were many models displayed.
