“The choice to purchase the vehicle was a combination of this being a great opportunity to support the SAE Foundation and a great opportunity to obtain the first 2014 CTS,” said Tim Whited. “We saw the SAE Foundation/Cadillac display at Reno, then listened to the great presentation… on the auction block. At that point, Pat and I looked at each other and decided to participate in the bidding – the rest is history.”

The 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport is powered by a 420-hp twin-tubrocharged 3.6L V6 that is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The CTS Vsport is positioned above the standard CTS models, but is not quite as powerful as the high-performance CTS-V.

“We are extremely grateful to Cadillac, the outstanding team at Barrett-Jackson, Mr. and Mrs. Whited, and McCaddon Cadillac of Boulder for their incredible generosity and commitment to STEM education in the US,” said Lori Gatmaitan, director of the SAE Foundation. “Collectively, they are helping to deliver quality STEM programming in the classroom and helping to ensure the next generation of professionals has the skills and education necessary to compete on a global basis.”
