General Motors raised $200,000 for the Karmanos Cancer Institute when it auctioned off the chance to own the very first production 2016 Cadillac CT6 luxury flagship sedan at the 13th annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction in sunny Palm Beach, Florida.
Fellow automotive retailer David Flynn of Columbiana, Ohio made the winning bid of $200,000 for the all-new Cadillac luxury sedan that recently debuted at the 2015 New York International Auto Show. All of Flynn’s bid will go directly to the Karmanos Cancer Institute.
As the largest dealership group in the United States, AutoNation answers the call to fight cancer on a regular basis as well. Teaming up with IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay, AutoNation recently donated $2.5 million to the Cleveland Clinic Florida’s Maroone Cancer Center in order to help fight this horrible disease. Unfortunately, fighting cancer isn’t something we can do alone, and we’re glad to see General Motors, Barrett Jackson, and bidders like David Flynn ready to contribute to this cause.
Cadillac has not released pricing information for the 2016 Cadillac CT6 yet, but we’re certain the premium luxury sedan will start at much less than $200,000, which is more than the cost of two new Cadillac Escalade ESVs.
