Here we focus to the first HUMMER EV Edition VIN 001 (preview) along with the first retail production 2020 Mid-Engine C8 Chevrolet Corvette convertible (preview) that will also cross the auction block during Barrett-Jackson’s flagship Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, March 20-27, 2021.
“We are excited to be partnering with General Motors again as they auction two of their most historic and coveted halo vehicles,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The recently introduced GMC HUMMER EV and the mid-engine Corvette represent the cutting-edge technology and design being forged by the American automaker today. The sale of these two vehicles is destined to be among the most anticipated auctions of this year.”
To date, Barrett-Jackson says it’s raised more than $127 million for more than 130 local and national charitable organizations.
2020 GMC HUMMER EV VIN 001
The first retail production 2020 GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 VIN 001 is the world’s first all-electric supertruck designed to forge new paths with zero emissions. It’s equipped with a three-motor e4WD Electric Vehicle (EV) propulsion technology, this HUMMER EV offers a GM-estimated 1,000 horsepower. It delivers an estimated zero to 60 miles per hour in approximately three seconds and can charge nearly a 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes.
It comes standard with CrabWalk, 4-Wheel Steer, Adaptive Air Suspension and the Extreme Off-Road Package featuring 18-inch wheels, 35-inch OD Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, underbody armor, rock sliders, underbody cameras and an industry-leading Infinity Roof with removable transparent Sky Panels. The Lunar Horizon-themed interior features Tech Bronze accents, durable all-weather flooring, Bose 14-speaker audio system and Centerpoint.
“The sale of these remarkable GM vehicles is an important part of our effort to support some very worthwhile charities,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “The thrill of being the winning bidder for either one of these collectible vehicles will only be sweetened by the fact that 100 percent of the hammer price will go to benefit our nation’s veterans, as well as families in need across Southeastern Michigan.”
2020 Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Convertible VIN 001
The first retail production 2020 Mid-Engine C8 Chevrolet Corvette convertible delivers 495 horsepower, making it the most powerful production Stingray ever produced.

The VIN 001 vehicle includes the 3LT package, black exterior, black seats with red trim, red seat belts, GT2 seats, 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, rear spoiler, Performance Data Recorder and the Z51 package.
