$1 Million Corvette ZR1 Sold at Barrett-Jackson
The Corvette in question is the very first 2019 ZR1 to roll off the production line. And just to be clear, the car sold for under $1 million - $925,000 to be exact. Previously, the first Corvette Z06 production supercar fetched $800,000 at auction.

That’s a lot of money to be putting on cars that traditionally cost somewhere in the vicinity of $100,000 to $150,000. But that’s the appeal of the Corvette in the collectible market. Buyers pay millions for these first-production units because they know that the value of these cars could skyrocket under the right conditions. It could be true for the Corvette ZR1, especially if it retains its status as the fastest and most powerful Corvette in history. The provenance attached to a model of this caliber would be enough to see its price go through the roof.
