A 2015 Chrysler 300 was auctioned off for $27,000 at the NIADA Convention and Expo on Thursday for charitable purposes.
Andrew Gurowitz, the owner of Fairfax Motors in Fairfax, Va., placed the winning bid on the Chrysler, which was donated by ADESA, AFC, IAA and TradeRev, members of the KAR Auction Services group of companies.
All proceeds from the auction, which was held at The Mirage in Las Vegas, will be directed toward NIADA's charity efforts, which includes awarding scholarships to college-bound students and providing training and educational opportunities to automobile dealers and the general public.
The vehicle, which has 9,320 miles on the odometer, will be delivered to Gurowitz with the help of several of KAR Auction Services companies.
Gurowitz prevailed in a bidding battle with California's State Quality Dealer, Mehdi Chitgari of Classic Chariots in Vista, Calif.
Over the past four years, KAR-sponsored auctions at the NIADA Convention and Expo have raised a total of $97,200 for the NIADA Foundation. During last year's event, Pennsylvania dealer Andy Gabler bid $27,500 for a 2013 Mercedes C250W.
