The first Chevrolet 2014 Camaro Z/28 sold for $650,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Given how big of a Chevy enthusiast Rick Hendrick is, it’s no surprise that the winning bid went to him. Hendrick will receive the first retail production Z/28 sporting a 7.0-liter V8 engine with 505 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will be priced from $75,000 when it hits dealerships later this year. All proceeds from the Z/28 auction will go to benefit Cornerstone Schools which has provided the children in Detroit an excellent education for over 21 years.
