Would You Keep Jeff Gordon’s 2021 Chevy Camaro ZL1 if You Won it?

If you won a 2021 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that has over 600 hp and could get to 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.4 seconds, would you keep it? That sounds like quite the prize, and what’s even better is that it’s not just any old Camaro ZL1 that you can find in a dealership showroom, it’s actually Jeff Gordon’s one-of-kind Camaro that he’s giving away through his Children’s Foundation. Now that you know that, would you keep it or sell it?

What’s so great about this specific 2021 Chevrolet Camaro?

At first glance, it’s easy to mistake this 2021 Chevrolet Camaro as one of the Hertz rental Camaros, but take a second look and you’ll see why this car is no rental fleet unit. For starters, the matte gold paint that adorns the lower lip kit was hand-picked by Gordon himself and mixed by Axalta. Not only were the front and rear valences painted, but the brake calipers were as well.

Additionally, there’s even an plate in the engine bay with the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation logo on it as well as a “1 of 1” designation to express the car’s exclusivity. According to the Camaro for a Cure website, gold is the official color for childhood cancer awareness.

And in case you might be wondering, it looks like all of the other parts of the car are standard Chevy issued, including the optional 1LE Extreme Track package, which includes upgraded aero pieces, an adjustable suspension, and 19-inch gloss black wheels wrapped in summer tires.

Under the hood is a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque and is matched to a slick-shifting, six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching.

Why is the Camaro being given away?

According to the foundation’s site, around 300,000 families across the globe are affected by children’s cancer each year. And many of the children that are diagnosed with cancer will suffer long-term effects including hearing loss, heart disease, and even secondary cancers, so Jeff Gordon’s Children’s Foundation is raising money to help fund cancer research.

How can you win the Camaro?

If you would like to help out the cause and enter in for a chance to win this one-of-a-kind Camaro ZL1, then you can buy a ticket on the foundation’s website. Each ticket will cost you $100 and you can purchase up to 50 of them. That sounds extreme, but considering you would be spending $5,000 to win a Camaro that’s valued at $76,930, it’s not a bad deal. And what’s even better is that all of the proceeds will go toward funding cancer research.
