What you're looking at here is the first 2012 Chevrolet Camaro. Yes, indeed, this is number one, and it has the VIN to match, as the last six characters of this Camaro's VIN are indeed 000001. It also has the provenance to match: it was originally offered by Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach in April 2012 in a charity auction to raise money for the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, and it sold for $150,000.

These days, it's offered by Choice Motor Group in the Phoenix area with 14,853 miles and an asking price of $250,000. That may seem steep, but how often do you get the chance to own the first of its kind?

Plus, this Camaro is well-equipped. It's a V8-powered convertible model, painted black with gray and red stripes and built with a 6-speed manual transmission. It's also a 45th Anniversary Edition model, which adds to its collectibility, as "anniversary edition" Camaro models seem to draw extra interest.

With that said, however, it's not the first "new" Camaro. The revived Camaro first went on sale for the 2010 model year, so this isn't the first one -- and it's not the first convertible, either, as that debuted shortly after the coupe. Instead, this particular Camaro is merely the first 2012 model, which probably hampers its collectibility.

Still, it's cool to have VIN 000001 of anything -- and surely someone will pay some sort of premium just to have the very first 45th Anniversary Edition version of this car.
