DETROIT — GM and Chevrolet will offer the fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever built for auction to benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the work it does to support wounded veterans through the Building for America’s Bravest program.

On Jan. 20, 2018, the first retail production 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will hit the auction block at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“GM and Chevrolet are proud to honor and support the brave men and women of our armed forces,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. Sales and Service. “With the proceeds from the auction of the Corvette ZR1, we will be able to offer additional support to some of our most severely wounded veterans through the Building for America’s Bravest effort.”

With more than 6,000 veterans employed at GM and more than 50,000 GM retirees who are veterans, GM and Chevrolet are committed to helping those who have given so much for their country.

The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is named for a New York City firefighter and first responder who died during the attacks of Sept. 11. The foundation builds mortgage-free smart homes for the most catastrophically injured service members through its Building for America’s Bravest program. These smart homes feature automated doors and lighting; wider halls and doorways; special showers to accommodate wheelchairs; automatic door openers; cabinets, counters and stove tops that can be raised and lowered; backup generators; and central heating and air conditioning systems that can be controlled by tablets. Each home is built with the goal of enabling the most severely injured heroes to live better, more independent lives.
