One-hundred percent of the hammer price from the hotly anticipated 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. To date, Barrett-Jackson has raised more than $127 million for more than 130 local and national charitable organizations.
“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.”
The first retail production 2020 GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 VIN 001 (preview) is the world’s first all-electric supertruck designed to forge new paths with zero emissions. Driven by next-gen three-motor e4WD Electric Vehicle (EV) propulsion technology, this HUMMER EV offers a GM-estimated 1,000 horsepower with an estimated zero to 60 miles per hour in approximately three seconds; it is capable of charging nearly 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes.

“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.”
