The owner of the first eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette, announced that his car will never go on the road.

The first production copy of the mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette last week went under the hammer at a Barrett-Jackson auction in the US city of Scottsdale. The supercar, whose VIN ends in 001, cost the buyer three million dollars: the well-known businessman Rick Hendrick, the CEO of Hendrick Automotive Group and the head of Hendrick Motor Sports became the lucky owner of the Corvette. He has been selling Chevrolet for a long time and is a big fan of the Corvette model, however, according to the Detroit Free Press, he is not going to use the new supercar for its intended purpose.

Hendrick told reporters that he will never ride a purchased Corvette: the first issued copy will be put in the hall of the headquarters of the businessman’s company. By the way, in his collection of 120 cars there are already several first copies of the previous generation Chevrolet Corvette. The red supercar presented at the auction was one of the prototypes of the model, and the first production copy will be assembled in February.
