A message from John Fitzpatrick, Camaro Marketing Manager:

The Camaro Marketing Team would like to bring to your attention a unique opportunity to obtain the third Camaro to be produced when regular production starts in February 2009, and help a great college in the Detroit area.

Since that memorable day in January 2006, when the Camaro concept was revealed, one of the most discussed, striking feature of the car has been its looks. A lot of effort was put into the design of this great car. Chevrolet wanted to honor that effort by providing an opportunity to a local Detroit institution - the College for Creative Studies - responsible for the higher education of a number of great GM Designers.

Chevrolet has arranged for the College for Creative Studies (CCS) to purchase the third 2010 Camaro model produced when regular production starts in early 2009 (currently scheduled for February 16, 2009). In turn, CCS will auction this very special model as part of its annual fundraising event.

Starting this evening (Wednesday, October 15, 2008) at 9 p.m. (EDT), CCS will list their Camaro on Ebay Motors. The auction will run until Saturday, October 25, 2008 at 9 p.m. The model is a 2010 Camaro SS featuring 6.2L V8 engine with over 400 horsepower and a GM estimated 23 MPG highway (official EPA ratings will be released closer to the start of production in early 2009). The winning bidder will have the option of adding factory installed optional equipment and selecting the exterior and interior trim color.

Located in midtown Detroit, the College for Creative Studies is a world leader in art and design education. A private, fully accredited college, CCS enrolls more than 1,300 students pursuing various Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees including Product Design and Transportation Design.

Last year, CCS raised $1.4 million with the proceeds for this event underwriting undergraduate scholarships and high-quality art and design education programs to high-risk Detroit Youth. 98 percent of CCS students received some form of financial assistance and over 3,000 Detroit youth participated in CCS's community outreach programs.

If you are interested in attaining the certified third Camaro model produced when regular production starts, you are encouraged to visit http://www.collegeforcreativestudies.edu/diwa and click on the Ebay link to register and come back at 9 p.m. (EDT) on October 15 to begin bidding. Please call the College at 313.664.7464 with any questions.

Hurry, the auction ends 9:00 p.m. (EDT) Saturday October 25, 2008.

It doesn't seem to be getting much action so far.

Most seasoned eBayers won't give in to the temptation to bid early as that just ends up driving the final price up. The real bidding goes on in the final minutes/seconds of an auction. It might be slightly different with such a high ticket item as this but I somehow doubt it. Even if it IS for charity it would be foolish to think that the winning bidder wasn't bidding because they really wanted it and would still want to save themselves a few bucks.

I still expected it to by higher by this time though.

Auctions: 2010 Chevy Camaro SS

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS auctioned on eBay as a fundraiser for the College for Creative Studies in Detroit sold for $73,000. That's a far cry from the announced price of $30,995 that the Camaro SS will sell for when General Motors Corp. begins production early next year.
