As manufacturers tend to do these days, General Motors put the rights to buy the first 2010 Camaro on the block at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ. The lucky wealthy owner paid $350,000 for the privilege of owning what will no doubt be a serious collector’s item.

The owner will, however, have to wait until March 16th – the date GM has set to start production on the reborn icon.

While the price paid is actually more than ten times what the vehicle is worth, (the V6-powered LS priced at $22,995 and the SS starting at $33,430) the dollar amount pales in comparison to amounts paid recently for other high publicity, low volume American-made machines.

The first Challenger SRT8 left the block for $400,000, the first Shelby GT500 KR topped out at $550,000 and last year the rights to the very first ZR1 went for a whopping $1 million.

All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the American Heart Association.
