This morning we were tipped about a "mystery" Corvette or Camaro that will be auctioned this weekend at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach. After digging around the interwebs and firing off a bunch of emails, it was our tweet to Corvette PR rep David Caldwell who confirmed that the 2012 Chevrolet on Barrett-Jackson's run list was indeed a special edition Corvette.

The auction of the 2012 Corvette is scheduled for Saturday. Chevy will release more details about the Special Edition Corvette later this week.

Rick Hendrick bought the #100 Centennial Corvette Z06 at Barrett-Jackson, phoning in his bid of $175,000. This one will be parked next to the 2011 Carbon Edition Z06 he bought last year. His garage is going to look badass.

He got some goodies with it too. Corvette Racing VIP at Petit Le Mans, Engine Build Experience and Museum Delivery.

Here is video of the sale:

"Badass"??? DUMBass !!!

So for an extra $100,000 Rick got some stripes and decals? Oh yeah ......... REAL badass........... NOT! I thought there was hope for GM and that maybe they realized stripes and decals do not a special model make, but now I know better. I cannot even accept that crap for Indy 500 Pace Cars, thinking those should have an engine upgrade for what they are supposed to do. Sad..... Stripes and decals ....... ooo-ooooooooo

for a centennial car , it should be special , not bold new graphics , to borrow a Dirt Bike term
