The Auction is was sold in was to benefit science, math, technology and engineering in the Detroit Public Schools System.  And who paid such a price?

Rick Hendrick, owner of the NASCAR Sprint Cup team that runs the car of five-peater Jimmie Johnson – along with those of Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. – purchased the first Volt built for sale.
Here is what he had to say…
“This was an opportunity to own a piece of history while giving back to the community,” Hendrick wrote in a press release. The longtime Chevrolet dealer opened for business in 1976 and got involved in the top tier of stock car racing in 1984. His team currently fields Chevrolet Impala race cars.
