I drove down from Richmond, VA to Florida and met up with my buddy with the jeep. We had to do a quick race.So here is is: 2007 Jeep SRT-8 smokes 2006 Cadillac XLR-V. Yea the jeep is modded, caddy is stock, but still!!
We both honked the 1st honk, as he was getting anxious, but I honked the 3..
I want to get some more races between these 2 cars! this is a 15 to roughly 60/70mph.
As you hear, my buddy got a bit excited of the sound of HB's jeep!
XLR-V 12.4 second ¼ Mile
Customer submitted this video of his XLR-V at the race track. With a D3
stage 1.5 power package he ran a 12.43 @ 112.66 mph.
JEEP SRT8 VORTECH SUPERCHARGED vs PORSCHE 911 TURBO 600HP
JEEP SRT8 Vortech Supercharged VS Porsche 911 turbo 600HP
Just had some nice battles with a 600HP Porsche 911 turbo.
We hit three 0-60 MPH and here is the result of the last race. (First two
races, I only have the sound:mad:)
Note: The Jeep has 3 passengers and 1/2 tank full vs single passenger in
On the first 2 races, the Jeep ran 0-60 in 3.9sec and the Porsche passes me
at 70 MPH.
On this following video, after a nice chat with the owner, he asks me to do
another 0-60 and on this one, [B]I am sad to report that the Jeep was
defeated for the first time in Abu Dhabi on a 0-60.[/B]
Look at the video, the Porsche launched very quickly with no wheel spin.
The Jeep ran a 4.0 sec flat, I guess that he must have run a 3.2sec. What
do you think? VERY IMPRESSIVE!

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
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
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.
2006 Cadillac XLR-V Supercharged Stock 0-139mph run on Heads Up Display Dash
Well, a few have asked for a request of a 0-1xx run, and this is what I
got. I was spinning from the dig since I am not running the pirellis at
the moment, but the launch is still decent. The car had plenty left to
easily hit 160, but it is just to dangerous around here.... Not that 140
is, but you get the point.
Thanks for viewing!
Review: 2006 Cadillac XLR-V
Go to MYRIDE.COM for more car videos.
5 years ago a six-figure Cadillac would've been a cruel punchline, but take
the exclusive style of the XLR, give it the V-series performance treatment,
and presto--you've got a $100,000 car.
