Announcing the 2024 Grand Marshal, Kip Wasenko

Kip Wasenko – Automotive Designer, Race Car Designer, Racer and an amazing, lifelong auto enthusiast.

Kip Wasenko began his 40-year Design Career at General Motors in June 1968. During this time his
career included the U.S., Europe and Australia. He retired in May 2008.
At GM Design Kip was Chief Designer of Saturn, Chevrolet Studio, Oldsmobile Studio, Cadillac Studio and
several Advance Studios. He was Director of Design of the GM Performance Division and Specialty
Vehicles.
In 1973 Kip received his first Design Patent on the Two-Rotor Mid-Engine Corvette Concept Car which is
now on display at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.
Kip also designed many Indy 500 and Daytona 500 Pace Cars. The most exotic was the Mid-Engine Buick
Wildcat with its exposed Indy 500 Engine by Buick. This Mid-Engine Wildcat, designed in 1984-85, was a
true Supercar Concept that would rival today’s million dollar Supercars.

Kip is best known for the Design of the Cadillac EVOQ named “Best Concept Car” at the 1999 North
American International Auto Show. This Design initiated the Art & Science Design direction which was
recognized as a Design Renaissance for Cadillac. The EVOQ was sold to the public as the
Cadillac XLR-V. Kip applied the same Design Philosophy to the CTS-V, STS-V and the Cadillac LMP Race
Car developed with Riley & Scott that raced LeMans. In addition, he designed the winning CTS-VR World
Challenge Cadillac Race Cars by Pratt & Miller.

In February 2005, Motor Trend magazine recognized Kip’s contribution on their Top 50 Power List. “He’s
made Cadillacs cool again.”
Kip is a Ferrari enthusiast and has owned his 1970 Ferrari 246GT Dino since 1975. As an amateur race car
driver, this is Kip’s 31st season racing his Corvette.

Kip has served as a Judge at many well known Concours d’Elegance events. Be sure to meet and gain insight from this amazing designer, racer and lifelong auto enthusiast.
