First 2012 Camaro ZL1 Sold for $250,000

The first 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 offered to the public has sold for $250,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas. The 2012 Camaro ZL1 was offered by Fairway Chevrolet-Buick-GMC in Las Vegas, with 100 percent of the auction proceeds benefitting the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

The lucky new owner of the Camaro ZL1 is Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports and chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group. Hendrick’s Camaro ZL1 will be the the only 2012 Camaro ZL1 coupe produced with a Carbon Flash Metallic exterior. It’s also the 69th ZL1 produced in tribute of the 1969 Camaro ZL1, of which only 69 were produced.

“Our family has been involved with the YMCA for more than 25 years,” said Greg Heinrich, president of Fairway Chevrolet. “In that time, I have seen firsthand how the ‘Y’ helps young people, families, and seniors in our community. Today, the community’s dependence on the YMCA of Southern Nevada is greater than ever, with the Y sponsoring one out of four members.”
