  • 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

    The very first 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has a home—and a familiar one at that.

Of course, owning the first of anything normally doesn't come cheap. Hendrick bid $250,000 to claim the Camaro ZL1 1LE bearing the VIN ending in 001 for his garage of incredible cars during this past weekend's Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach, Florida. If you missed our past coverage, the Camaro ZL1 1LE is more than just a surname attached...
