The big news for 1914 was Cadillac's winning England's coveted Dewar Trophy for the second time (Cadillac is the only auto maker to ever have achieved this feat twice in a row). The trophy rewards the most distinguished automotive achievement of the year, demonstrating the advancement of the industry. The Dewar trophy was instituted in 1904 to encourage technical progress. It was sponsored by a wealthy member of the British parliament, Sir Thomas Dewar. It was awarded annually to the company making the most important advancement in the automotive field. Racing was coming of age when this Cadillac was modified to racing standards. The engine is a 365.8 cubic-inch 4-cylinder that develops 40/50 horsepower. The rear axle is a 2-speed Timken.
