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.

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.
