The high-performance twin-turbo V6-powered sedan will go under the hammer during a live auction conducted by Barrett-Jackson later this year, GM revealed in a press release.

"The SAE Foundation's STEM educational programs are vital to ensuring we ignite the passion for math and science in young students who will be the future leaders of the automobile industry," said Mary Barra, GM senior vice president. "At a recent SAE a World in Motion third-grade skimmer project I was especially gratified to see students having so much fun applying key principles of math and science. So it is fitting to support SAE's programs by donating a vehicle that embodies what is possible when ingenuity meets engineering excellence.”

GM has long sponsored the SAE Foundation through its GM Foundation, that also provides more than 1,500 mentors and volunteers to help nearly 85,000 students.
