Both GM vehicle auction sales will also benefit charity. One hundred percent of the hammer price from the GMC HUMMER EV will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The United Way for Southeastern Michigan will receive the entire sale price of the 2020 C8 Chevrolet Corvette convertible.

“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.
