First Camaro ZL1 fetches $250,000, to be 69th produced

The first 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 offered to the public sold for $250,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas on Saturday. But in a weird twist, by first, we mean 69th.

The number 69 is a special number for many, but even more so for ZL1 fans because it pays tribute to the original 1969 Camaro ZL1, of which only 69 were produced. The auction took advantage of this special number by offering the 69th 2012 Camaro ZL1 to roll out of the factory. All proceeds go to the YMCA of Southern Nevada. Besides being the special build number, the ZL1 will also be finished in an exclusive Carbon Flash Metallic color.

The ZL1 was the code name for the 427-cubic-inch, all-aluminum big-block engine developed for Corvette racecars in the late 60s, but it found its way into 69 Camaros in 1969. The 1969 Camaro was also recently voted the "best Chevy of all time” by visitors to the Chevrolet web site.
