Germany is well known for its automotive industry. Germany’s automotive industry is well known for their balance of competition and aggression.

It’s really not that big a deal to see them rival each other with all of the innovation and toys they’re capable of on a weekend and see them copy each other next week.

In similar fashion, the competition in various poiints of the US market is serious business and unusually focused around the money and sales.

At the sports car leagues, the Americans only really have two proper competitors. The SRT Viper and Chevrolet Corvette have been at each others throats for decades.

Recently, SRT unveiled a brand new version of the Viper and it was just at this Detroit Motor Show that Chevrolet fought back with a new C7.

Some copying is going on, a lot like you’d notice with the Germans and it seems that there’s also something going on with the way the US car makers are getting on.

When it was introduced, the Viper came with an announcement saying that the first car ever produced would be auctioned off for charity.

Well now, can you guess what Chevrolet are doing with their first unit of the Corvette C7 Stingray?

Precisely, come the next Barret Jackson auction this weekend, the 6.2 liter V8 supercar will be sold to one lucky guy for quite the premium.

Whatever he pays will be going to charity, which is quite nice of a large corporation to be doing. Even if they do get more media coverage out if it than it actually costs to make the actual car.
