How can I symbolize a shapefile in ArcGIS and transfer that symbology to AutoCAD?

My boss wants to see the topography contours displayed on an AutoCAD drawing such that the lines display on a gradient scale. My shapefile has elevation contour lines with a contour elevation number assigned to each one. So I can sort them by unique values from lowest to highest and then symbolize them with a color ramp. This makes a nice display and tells the story at a glance. 

But we want to use this data as a background layer in an AutoCAD drawing and I have no clue how to export it to AutoCAD and retain the symbology.
