Cadillac XLR & XLR-V Fusion Exhaust by Billy Boat Performance Exhaust
Call to Order (888) 228-7435 or Order Online - http://www.bbExhaust.com/car/corvette/fusion/ (XLR page coming in April/May '13) The luxury of a Cadillac, the performance of a Corvette and accurately described by Harvey Schwartz on LACar.com as "A Corvette in Cadillac Clothes". Obviously, the XLR has settled into its own distinct niche (see forums like xlr-net.com, where our Billy Boat XLR Fusion system is very well spoken of--and this among the car's real enthusiasts). Equipped with either the SC 4.4L (XLR-V) or the 4.6L (XLR) DOHC 32-Valve Northstar V8 alum-alloy block & heads w VVT, the XLR exemplifies a hard-charging, performance-bred, front-engine, transaxle-transferred, RWD rowdy roadster. It's got swagger, style and stunning good looks. It's like the Great Gatsby of Cadillacs. It's so "have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too" American that the "Hemingway of High-Performance Highway Horses" (Billy Boat) immediately identified with it. It's a car for those who like to work hard for their luxury. And we've developed a high-performance, hand-fabricated, stainless-steel Exhaust system that fits your XLR like a glove. We've already perfected the FUSION Exhaust on all NPP (and have kits for non-NPP vehicles) cars with our bi-modal Exhaust systems. Seriously, Google it. We strive to maintain the best group of distributors and dealers all over the world. You can call to order directly from us, or to clarify any questions you have about our XLR system by using our toll-free number (888) 228-7435. As an acclaimed U.S. manufacturer of performance Exhaust systems for Corvettes, it was second-nature for Billy Boat to embrace an Exhaust mod for the LS6-inspired XLR Exhaust system. The XLR is based on the Corvette's Y Platform, the XLR blazed onto the scene in 2004, immediately nominated for North American Car of the Year. B&B has an Exhaust to fit your 2004-2009 Cadillac XLR. The Billy Boat Fusion is a bi-modal Exhaust system, meaning it has two passages, or modes, that the Exhaust can travel through the muffler. Each of the mufflers has two outlets, with one side having a butterfly-type valve which allows the Exhaust flow to be shut off, regulating which side of the muffler the Exhaust flows out of. One side of the muffler is the "quiet" side, and one side is the "loud" side. The "quiet" side is a smaller, muffled and chambered tube, while the "loud" side is 3" tubing straight through.





2005 Cadillac XLR Start Up, Exhaust, and Full Tour
I finally get to review a cadillac xlr! This is the first time that I have seen one up close, let alone be able to check it out in detail so I was really excited to be able to. This has the northstar V8 VVT engine, push button start, bose sound system, navigation, and a retractable hardtop. Pretty awesome car in person and the edgy design is beautiful. I give a full in depth tour of the interior, exterior, engine and trunk, give a demonstration of the top, sound system and more, enjoy everyone!





Cadillac XLR-V--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive and Review 2012 Chris Moran
Cadillac XLR-V--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive and Review with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M Motorsports. For those who wanted to go really fast and be coddled while doing it, Cadillac created the XLR-V convertible, which was produced from 2006 to 2009. The V at the end of the car's moniker indicated that it was a performance variant of Cadillac's XLR, but it could've easily stood for viciously quick and very luxurious. Viciously quick came courtesy of this Cadillac's supercharged V8, which could send you hurtling from zero to 60 in less than 5 seconds. Taking a cue from European ultraluxury manufacturers, Cadillac gave each V8 a personal touch, with each being built from start to finish by a single craftsman. Very luxurious was the end result of the wealth of standard features that came on the Cadillac XLR-V roadster. Adaptive cruise control, heated steering wheel, head-up display and a voice-activated navigation system are just a few examples of the latter. Unfortunately, the XLR-V just didn't stack up to its similarly priced rivals from Germany, Britain and even within General Motors itself. The XLR-V may have been vicious, but it lacked the slick handling, high levels of refinement and interior furnishings others offered. Most Recent Cadillac XLR-V Designed to facilitate wind-tousled tresses and sun-kissed cheeks, the Cadillac XLR-V was available only as a two-seat convertible with a retractable hardtop. Aside from its high-performance innards, this special XLR was distinguished from its less spirited sibling by a unique front grille and a sculpted hood designed to accommodate the 443-horsepower V8's Supercharger. Sent to the rear wheels via a manually shiftable six-speed automatic, all that thrust was good enough to catapult the XLR-V to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds. The XLR-V came one way -- fully loaded and was essentially unchanged during its four-year production run. Perks like Bluetooth phone connectivity, heated leather seats and adaptive cruise control were all standard. The XLR-V's power-retractable hardtop could go from closed to open (and vice-versa) in about 30 seconds. Though the XLR-V's interior was attractive, trimmed with gleaming aluminum accents and burnished exotic wood, it was still subpar compared to its similarly priced rivals. Also, the cockpit was somewhat tight for taller drivers and cargo room was limited as well. During our time in the XLR-V, we found ourselves swept away on a wave of raw power as the XLR was eager to leap to attention at the slightest tap of the throttle. Its Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension was tuned to be sportier than it was on the standard XLR and indeed provided sharper handling seemingly with no penalty in ride comfort. But compared to its more athletic and refined European rivals, the XLR-V still came up a bit short as its steering was overly heavy and its handling wasn't as agile.





2004 Cadillac XLR Retractable Hardtop Convertible
I thought you'd like a look at this beautiful 2004 Cadillac XLR. It is a convertible that features a very cool retractable hardtop. This car was built for performance and comfort. The exterior is painted in Crimson Pearl with a black leather interior. The XLR was built on the same platform as the Corvette but had a $30k premium over the Corvette. This car is powered by Cadillac's Northstar 32 valve V8 with 320 h.p. mated to a 5 speed automatic transmission. This combination will give you 25 mpg on the highway. The XLR has only 42,000 original miles with less than 1k miles on the new tires. This car has power everything! Options include: Power Windows, Power Locks, Power Heated Seats, AM/FM/CD player, GPS and Push Button start to name a few. For some fun in the sun all this Caddy asks for is a touch of a button and the Power Retractable hard top disappears! Thanks for taking a look!

2008 Cadillac XLR-V Convertible Roadster A2617
http://www.autosofpalmbeach.com/cgi-bin/showroom.cgi?d_id=1078 The Cadillac brand is one of the most notable American icons with its long line of noteworthy automobiles. Since its inception over 100 years ago, Cadillac has been a pioneer in the industry with its innovative engines and world class luxury. Fitting in with the legacy that Cadillac has established is your new Black Raven 2008 Cadillac XLR-V. This awesome piece of machinery features an incredibly muscular 4.4L 443 horsepower V8 engine with 414 lb-ft of torque. If you're interested in this car, then you've likely already heard about or experienced the sheer exhilaration that comes from just tapping the gas pedal. It is awesome. Plus with navigation, heated seats, Bose stereo, XM satellite radio, rear park assist, and head up display you'll have tons of convenience features to get you where you want not only quickly but also comfortably. This is a truly impressive vehicle. Let's take a closer examination of your new Cadillac XLR-V. EXTERIOR: The BLACK RAVEN paint is in clean, shiny condition and the color does an excellent job highlighting the sweeping roofline and well-sculptured frame of this refined, high-end automobile! When you see the V badges you will know you are about to drive one remarkable machine. The 443 horsepower engine is responsive and extremely powerful with its 4.4L liter displacement and six-speed automatic transmission. It will likely be difficult for you to avoid giving the car plenty of juice just because of the wonderful growl that escapes the Exhaust and the spectacular connection between driver and road. Let's not forget that this is a convertible! The power hard top goes up and down with ease. To help you see where you're going, the XLR-V is outfitted with HID head lamps with washers and Twilight Sentinel. An additional safety feature are the fog lamps. The aggressive and stunning look of the car is emphasized by the 19" wheels with accompanying tires in good condition! These wheels along with the performance tuned suspension help to improve the already outstanding handling so much that you will be begging for curves. This is truly one fine looking car. It also comes with the remainder of its four year/50,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and five year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty. INTERIOR: When you enter the cabin of this automobile, you'll immediately understand why the XLR-V is one of the nicest American sport convertibles. The EBONY leather bucket seats are in great condition as are the matching mats and carpet. The seats feature eight way adjustment so that you will be completely stable and comfortable. The leather also carries over to the tilt steering wheel which has controls for the Driver Information Center and cruise control. Helping you stay comfortable on chilly days, you'll love the dual heated seats to keep you toasty. The navigation system is spectacular and will assist you in reaching your destinations easily and quickly. This unit also controls the Bose premium sound system which includes AM/FM stereo, six disc CD changer, and nine speakers. With the keyless ignition system, you can leave your key in your pocket and still start the car. The vehicle will detect the key and with just the push of a button the engine will roar to life. Thanks to the rear park assist system, you will have audible alerts to what is behind you to help you avoid needlessly backing into things that may be just outside of your normal view. The Head Up display will certainly come in handy. You wont have to take your eyes off the road to keep tabs on how fast you're driving. A convenient read-out will reflect right onto the windshield so you'll always be in the know. What awesome features! Some other great assets in your new XLR-V are: dual climate control, tire pressure monitor system, power locks, power windows, cruise control, V-series trim, universal garage door transmitter, and cup holders. Your car also comes with factory mats, books, and one key. We invite you to enjoy perusing the many photos herein listed to get to know your new XLR-V better. Remember, this is a used car. Although it is in great shape, it will show some minor signs of wear. Consider also the great savings you will have in purchasing a pre-owned automobile. This car retailed new around $100,000! You will definitely enjoy paying thousands of dollars less on this car which is still in fantastic condition. Congratulations on making such a wise decision to own a car included in a long legacy of fantastic cars with your new Cadillac XLR-V.
