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!

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!
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.
Cadillac XLR Salt Flat Car
This car was built for Bob Johnson by Johnson's Hot Rod Shop in Gadsden,
AL. The car was built to race at Bonneville Speed Week, Utah. It's first
year to run was August 2007.
2008 Cadillac XLR-V Convertible Roadster A2617
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
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.
PORSCHE PANAMERA 4S VS JEEP SRT8
2010 Porsche Panamera 4S vs Stock 2009 Jeep SRT8
2 race from 0-100MPH
very close call. the 2 cars are amazingly similar in both bottom and top
end. Also ran a few rolls from 30 and 60 MPH and got matching results.
turbo version of the Panamera will be a
killer. Cannot wait to test one against my modded SRT8.
1909 Cadillac First Drive First Start in 79 Years
This is a follow up to the earlier 1909 Cadillac first start. Bob took his
first drive in his 1909 Cadillac Model 30 touring September 1, 2013. He has
owned this car for and been working on the restoration on and off for 46
years. The last time this Cadillac drive under its own power was in 1933,
80 years ago.
There are still some bugs to work out, but it moves!.
Update, this is the first actual drive for Bob's Cadillac. For the original
first start of the engine see the other video at
