McConaughey's sports car sells for $61,600 in auction for hurricane relief

Email   small font medium font large font


DALLAS (AP) _ The winning bid for Matthew McConaughey's 1971 Corvette Stingray convertible, auctioned for hurricane relief, was $61,600 US, according to the EBay website.

The name of the winning bidder wasn't immediately released. The website indicated that 72 bids were received.

McConaughey, a native of Texas, said he's donating all proceeds from last month's sale to Oprah Winfrey's Angel Network for Katrina and Rita recovery efforts.

Film credits for the 36-year-old actor include Failure to Launch and The Wedding Planner. In 2005, he was named the ``sexiest man alive'' by People magazine.

Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast on Aug. 29, 2005. Rita made landfall in southeast Texas on Sept. 24.
