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.
Cadillac XLR & XLR-V Fusion Exhaust by Billy Boat Performance Exhaust

(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.

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!

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
An in-depth review of Mercedes' newest world-class supercar, the 2011
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Hosted by Chris Moran. SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO
REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com.
It's five and a half feet long. It weighs 8.8 pounds. Height of an adult
female, weight of a gallon or so of gas—these are the critical dimensions
of the carbon-fiber driveshaft running between the engine and the
rear-mounted transaxle in the new Mercedes SLS AMG. We note this here
because, despite the car's retro-gullwing looks, the SLS is utterly
bleeding edge—both in terms of its technical attributes and what it
represents for Mercedes' in-house tuner. It is not simply a Mercedes with
bigger wheels and a breathed-upon V-8 or V-12. It is, down to its churning
carbon-fiber core, AMG's first dedicated automobile and the very antithesis
of the overly complex and overweight half-million-dollar Mercedes SLR
"The SLS is a serious super sports car," says AMG chief of development
Tobias Moers before taking a shot at the SLR, a carbon-fiber-bodied car
that still managed to weigh in at 3858 pounds. "Our SLS weighs only 3572
pounds," he says, nearly 300 pounds lighter than the McMerc. Keeping the
182.6-inch-long, two-seat SLS's mass in check is its entirely aluminum
construction (save for that driveshaft and steel A-pillars), a first for
Mercedes-Benz. The aluminum structure weighs just 531 pounds, Mercedes
The most distinctive aspect of the SLS's appearance is, of course, its
roof-hinged gullwing doors, an homage to the iconic 300SL Gullwing. But AMG
personnel took pains to point out that the doors are the only thing the SLS
has in common with the 300SL. "We do not build a retro car at all!" AMG
boss Volker Mornhinweg explains sharply. "In fact, we think it is the most
advanced super sports car you can buy today."
Those gullwing doors look spectacular. Unlike with the original SL, where
one had to slide over a wide sill because of the space-frame structure
underneath, it's easy to access the SLS's cabin. There's only one issue:
Riders need long arms to reach the distant handles at the bottom of each
door to pull them closed.
The interior is simple and uncluttered, much like a current SL roadster's.
While the car's structure is a pure AMG design, most of the parts, except
for the shifter, are from the Mercedes bin. The instrument cluster is clear
and easy to read, and we love the round HVAC vents. The center console has
an aluminum finish, with carbon fiber an option.
Press the starter button on the center console, and the now-familiar,
AMG-designed 6.2-liter V-8 awakens with an angry yelp. The idle is deep,
and the revs rise and fall race-car swiftly. Code-named M159, the engine is
basically a reengineered version of the M156 unit that's fitted to AMG's
"63" models. The M159 comes with an all-new magnesium intake, forged
pistons in place of cast ones, and optimized tubular Exhaust headers. The engineers also switched
from a wet sump to a dry arrangement, allowing the engine to be mounted
lower to benefit the SLS's center of gravity. The maximum output of 563 horsepower is
delivered at 6800 rpm, and peak torque of 479 pound-feet comes at 4750 rpm.
In order to satisfy emissions standards—EU5, LEVII, ULEV—the Bosch ME
9.7 AMG engine management is set up to recharge the battery during
deceleration. It's another way of trying to eke out decent fuel economy,
which, based on Mercedes' European estimates, should equate to roughly 13
mpg city and 20 highway.

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.
