Jay Leno, former President George W. Bush, and 2018 Carbon 65 Z06 #001 help raise $1,400,000 for our wounded warriors!!!
Dateline: 1.20.18 – 2018 Carbon 65 Special Edition Z06 raked in an astonishing $1,400,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction tonight! Star Power played a heavy roll because not only was former Tonight Show Jay Lenno (and host of Jay Leno’s Garage) on hand, but former President of the United States, George W. Bush, both helped lift this unique Corvette WAY over the million dollar mark.
A short video played before the auction showed President Bush (slowly) driving the 650-horsepower Corvette on his ranch. He joked that it was the first time he’d driven a car since 1992!
Jay explained that one hundred percent of the proceeds of the sale will go to the Bush Initiative to help our wounded warriors.and no auction fees will be deducted from the final sale price of the car. ALL of the money will go to help our wounded soldiers.
BRAVO to the buyer of the car, Jay Leno, and to President Bush. Anytime a car sells for over a million dollars at auction, it’s a big deal. What an honor for Chevrolet and team Corvette to have the 2018 Carbon 65 Z06 Corvette raise so much for those who have given so much. WOW! – Scott
