Barrett-Jackson has become something of a home for VIN 001 performance and collector cars. Two years ago, it was the first-ever new Supra and new Shelby GT500. Last year, it was the first production C8 Corvette. This year, the automotive auction house offered two memorable SUVs: The VIN 001 examples of both the new electric GMC Hummer and the return of the two-door Ford Bronco.

The GMC Hummer, finished in white, ended up raising an incredible $2.5 million to benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, about $2.4 million clear of the car’s already-lofty MSRP of $112,595. The Bronco, wearing the Lightning Blue exclusive to the First Edition, sold for $1.075 million to benefit the National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound.

In addition to the headlining sales, the auction also featured VIN 001 editions of the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing ($165,000), Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing ($265,000), Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition ($410,000), and Ford Mustang Mach 1 ($500,000). The first production C8 Corvette convertible also sold for $400,000, but that car does not carry a 001 VIN.

In total, the auction house claims that it raised $8.5 million for various charities over the course of this weekend’s events. The auction also saw the $5.5 million sale of Carroll Shelby’s “Super Snake,” a personally-owned cobra with a supercharger that was widely considered to be a famously bad idea. That car had previously sold for $5.1 million in 2015.
