It's not uncommon for an automaker to auction off the first unit – the one that gets VIN 001 – of a new model to the highest bidder. We've seen this happen many times, for instance with the Chevrolet Corvette, and, last weekend, with the Ram 1500 TRX, the GMC Hummer and… the new reborn Ford Bronco.
We reported previously on the astronomical amount paid for the first Hummer at last weekend’s Barrett Jackson auction, but it wasn’t the only big bid that came in. The first Ford Bronco sold for a final bid that slightly exceeded $1 million USD.
Specifically, the model went for an impressive $1,075,000 at the auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona.
