First Cadillac ATS to be Auctioned for Charity

First Cadillac ATS to be Auctioned for Charity

The first Cadillac ATS that rolled off the line in Lansing, Mich. earlier this year was held onto by the company, and is now being sold at a Barrett-Jackson auction with all proceeds going to support Team Joseph, a non-profit organization that funds Duchenne muscular dystrophy research.

The auction will take place from September 20 through 22 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, and Barrett-Jackson waived its commission from the car so that all of the profits can be donated.

“Donating the first Cadillac ATS will allow us to raise money and awareness for a very important cause,” said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac marketing. The car being donated is a crystal red, Premium-trim ATS outfitted with the 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 350 hp.  “It’s our way of supporting treatment for Duchenne, with some of that research occurring in our home state of Michigan.”
