First Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Sells for $250,000

What would you do to own the first model of a vehicle before it even goes on sale? If your answer is to fork over $250,000, your name might be Rick Hendrick. Hendrick, however, isn’t just any auto enthusiast. He’s the owner of Hendrick Motorsports, otherwise known as an official NASCAR racing team. He didn’t buy just any car either; he paid out $250,000 for the first-ever 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.

While official pricing for the new Camaro ZL1 1LE has yet to be announced, Hendrick was more than happy to pay $250,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction. All proceeds benefitted The United Way Charity, just as many first-production General Motors models do when they head to auction.

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is the most track-ready muscle car yet. Under the hood lies the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers a mighty 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. Other standard features include a carbon fiber rear wing, Brembo brakes, and much more.

This kind of purchase isn’t out of the ordinary for Hendrick though. In fact, it’s quite the bargain, considering he paid a massive $825,000 for the first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in 2014.

We here at Cottage Chevrolet are happy to see the new Camaro ZL1 1LE raising money for a great cause!
