Chevrolet Auctioning First Corvette Carbon 65 for Charity by Evan Williams November 17, 2017 Share Comments The first Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe is getting a famous signature before heading to auction in January to benefit veterans. The first Carbon Edition will be signed by President George W. Bush, and then it’s going to Barrett-Jackson’s January Scottsdale auction. Money raised by the sale will go to the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative. That group’s goal is to help post 9/11 vets and their families transition to civilian life. GM wants you to know that it employs 6,000 veterans currently, with over 50,000 counting retirees. The Corvette Carbon 65 is a special edition to celebrate 65 years of Corvette. It’s a track inspired package that is available on both Grand Sport and Z06 models. Chevy is only building 650 of them, and the cars come with special Ceramic Matrix Gray paint, special graphics, and unique wheels. The special ‘Vettes also get blue brakes and carbon-fiber ground effects. Other carbon bits include a carbon spoiler and intake ducts.
