First retail production Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe for auction at Barrett-Jackson

GM and Chevrolet are teaming up with the George W. Bush Presidential Center to honor and support those who have served and sacrificed to protect the security and freedom of all Americans. At 4:30 p.m. PST on Jan. 20, 2018, Chevrolet will offer the first retail production Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe, signed by President George W. Bush, for auction at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The money raised will benefit the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative. The Military Service Initiative’s primary goal is ensuring that post-9/11 veterans and their families make successful transitions to civilian life, with a focus on gaining meaningful employment and overcoming the invisible wounds of war.

The first Corvette rolled out of the factory on June 30, 1953. Chevrolet is commemorating the 65th anniversary of that auspicious debut with a new track-inspired Corvette Carbon Edition 65 package offered on 2018 Grand Sport and Z06 models.

Limited to only 650 vehicles, each with a unique vehicle identification number, the distinctive package blends visible carbon-fiber exterior elements similar to the Corvette Racing C7.R with a new Ceramic Matrix Gray exterior color and unique interior appointments that include a new carbon-fiber-rimmed steering wheel.

Available on Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ trims (order code Z30)

Unique fender stripes and door graphics
