Chevrolet is understandably proud of the 2023 Corvette Z06 and its designation as the production car with the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine. Today it has another reason to be proud of it: The first retail sale of the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition raised $3.6 million for Operation Homefront at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction.
If that sounds like a lot of money, it’s because it is — it broke the record for charity sales from manufacturer-donated cars. There’s no hard feelings about shattering the record, as it beat another Corvette, the 2020 Stingray, by $600,000.
Chevrolet is proud to support Operation Homefront with this charity auction. The charity’s mission is to support military families and veterans through initiatives that focus mainly on housing and financial support in tough times. They also offer assistance to veteran caregivers through support groups and education. “We are deeply grateful to our friends at Chevrolet and Barrett-Jackson for choosing Operation Homefront as the beneficiary of this incredible auction,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront. “The proceeds from the sale of this sensational Corvette Z06 will go a long way to helping us help our military families overcome their financial hardships and have the opportunity to thrive in the communities — our communities — they’ve worked so hard to protect.”
