First Chevrolet Corvette C7 to auction in Arizona?

If the rumours are true, the classic car collecting community could be offered the chance to buy the very first Chevrolet Corvette C7 to come off the production line at the 2013 Scottsdale auctions in Arizona.

First Chevrolet Corvette C7 auction
Will Chevrolet follow in the footsteps of Chrysler with the 2013 SRT Viper GTS?

Under Lot 3016, the auction house has stated: "Have you ever wanted to own a piece of Chevy history? This may be your chance! A special Chevrolet model will be revealed during the auction where bidders will have the opportunity to take home this one-of-a-kind vehicle."

This short description has led classic car collectors to assume that the secret consignment will be the very first Chevrolet Corvette C7, with GM rumoured to be taking up Chrysler's idea that saw the very first production 2013 SRT Viper GTS sold for an impressive $300,000 in June - three times its asking price.

The Corvette C7 - the latest in a series that has been running since 1953 - was not due to be released until 2014, with the model said to have received a complete overhaul in its latest edition: only two carryover parts from C6 are used in the C7.

All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Center for Creative Studies charity.
