Not only is it not even for sale, Chevy hasn’t even officially unveiled the Camaro Convertible yet – but that isn’t stopping them from auctioning off one of the first models at the Las Vegas Barrett-Jackson even today.

That doesn’t mean the Camaro Convertible will be revealed today, however, as Chevy says the vehicle being shown at the Mandalay Bay auction will be the concept vehicle that has been touring auto shows throughout the world. Its not the first Camaro Convertible either, as that model will be kept by GM for its museum.

All proceeds from the sale of the car will go to help the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

Camaro Convertible Auction to Benefit Nevada Charity

LAS VEGAS – Car collectors on Friday will vie to become one of the first owners of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, several months ahead of its arrival in dealerships and even before the production car is shown to the public.

The winning bidder will receive the second 2011 Camaro Convertible produced for consumer sale. The car on the auction block in Las Vegas will be the Camaro Convertible Concept that has traveled the world’s auto shows. The first production model will be used for historical purposes.

The production version will make its debut later this fall, prior to start of production in early 2011.

Chevrolet is partnering with Greg Heinrich, owner of Fairway Chevrolet in Las Vegas, to offer one of the first Camaro convertibles at the Barrett-Jackson Auction on Friday (Sept. 24) at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Proceeds from the winning bid will go to the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

    A true muscle car. Now convertible. If they only fixed the interior trim it would be amazing.
