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.
Daytona International Speedway Mini Cooper vs Corvette PBOC HPDE Solo Group
Session 3 Saturday, taking buddy and fellow instructor Dave around for his
first trip on Daytona. Had to go High in Nascar 1 & 2 due to traffic and
then caught a Vette. The Vette didn't understand the physics of a car that
wasn't previously in the mirror constantly re-appearing.

2009 Cadillac XLR-V Supercharged Start Up, Exhaust, Short Drive, and In Depth Tour
Pardon the voiceovers, had to fix some scenes that got destroyed by wind.
The day I filmed this car was one of the worst I've been through in a
while, thanks! In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2009
Cadillac XLR-V. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine
and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
Dodge Viper ACR racing at Daytona International Speedway with PBOC and Viper Days
Here is a 10 min video of Chad McNiel and David McNiel trip to Daytona -
First are random pictures of the cars and track and then on to racing....
Chad Raced his SRT-4 Neon in the Challenge group of Viper Days and PBOC
Florida Chapter and hit speeds in the 140's.... Me, well I in the race
group and was toping out around 170 on the main straight...The track was
fairly challenging and was very fast. A ton of walls and things to hit if
you went off - During the 2-hour endurance race on Saturday 4 cars had
blowouts - 2 of which hit the wall and had a lot of damage.... I think they
learned a lot about proper tire pressures that day. Lots of cars from raced
from BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, corvette and Comp Coupe Viper and
yes the Dodge Viper ACR; Kevin Ferguson and Brad Gorrondana from the Dallas
area with their ACRs were with us too.
