2012 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette to be Auctioned
Chevrolet, founded by a racing pioneer 100 years ago, celebrates its performance heritage with the 2012 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Corvette, which features a sleek black color scheme, unique design elements and Corvette’s trademark sports car technology.
The 2012 Centennial Edition package will be available on all Corvette models – including Grand Sport, Z06 and ZR1 – starting this summer.
Chevrolet will auction a Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction, in West Palm Beach, Fla., on April 9, with the proceeds to benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. It will be the 100th 2012 Corvette off the assembly line, with a vehicle identification number ending in “00100.”

Pick Your Own VIN
Corvette customers are unique automobile aficionados who seek to differentiate and personalize their specific Corvette model. Chevrolet caters to their customers by offering a number of cool options, including National Corvette Museum delivery and the Corvette Engine Build Experience.
These options have proven to be very popular, but some customers have expressed a desire to have a unique ending number assigned to their Corvette’s Vehicle Identification Number. For example, a customer may have a classic 1963 Corvette with a VIN ending in 1400, and seeks a new Corvette with the same matching VIN ending number. Up to this point, the VIN assignment for a customer’s new Corvette would have been a random process; but under a new program called Customer’s Selectable VIN Ending Option, customer can request a specific VIN ending number for their new production vehicle as long as the request falls within Corvette’s natural production sequence.
This new option will cost you a cool $5,000.
