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.

Mazda RX-7 Crash at 225 MPH!!
Bonneville Salt Flats: 3rd gen Mazda RX-7 race car trying to beat the land speed record for a production vehicle. At this speed, the tire patch that is touching the ground is LESS than the width of your index finger across each tire. Furthermore each patch is encountering dust and small sand-like particles often. If you could keep the pace with this car and remain standing next to it, you could reach over and push it away from you sideways with little effort. The announcer claims that an additional burst of oxygen in the fuel causes a loss of control, but in all likelyhood, the wind just changes ever so slightly, or began to blow (even lightly) and it was actually this that nudged the cars nose off by just enough to start a flat spin. Yes, a flat spin, like an airplane goes into! No rudder on this vehicle, so no control!





240 mph Crash (Team Arrow)
If you liked this video and wonder how Team Arrow made this record breaking motorcycle you gotta watch (Bonneville 200Mph Club ) just click the video response link bellow to watch our newest video. .. Team Arrow ,from Windsor Ontario Canada is Home of the Worlds Fastest 500cc Motorcycle Fastest one mile average 228.58 mph August 18, 2006 World Record S-G 650 210.728mph August 4, 2004. This was the last run for Team Arrow, things seemed to be going great. Then at 240 mph just after mile 4 the tire just separated sending Team arrow crashing. The Arrow's On-board sensors automatically shut off the engine, shut off the fuel flow, trigger the halogen bottle in the rider compartment, and pop the twin parachute to ensure that the bike slows in a straight line rather than rolling repeatedly or flipping end to end, either which could have ended in injury or death for the rider. The system works ! just ask Gary Hensley who pilots the bike. Gary Hensley survived this crash, shaken but not injured, aside from having been packed in salt when the rider compartment hatch cover was ripped open. Special thanks to Bob Williams for allowing me to edit and post Team Arrow's video, they are a true world class team . Stay tuned for more amazing video's. A Little History of Bonneville Salt Flats. The area was named after Benjamin Bonneville, a US army officer who explored the area. The flats were first recognized for their potential as a speed-testing ground by Bill Rishel, who in 1896 had cycled across the area to win a competition run by the newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst. In 1907 Rishel and two local businessmen tested the suitability of the salt for driving on by taking a Pierce Arrow onto the surface of the flats. A railway line across the Bonneville Salt Flats was completed in 1910, marking the first permanent crossing. The use of the salt flats as a speedway began in 1914 with Teddy Tetzlaff's run there which exceeded the land speed record, although the new record was not officially recognised. Rishel continued to promote the area for racing, and in 1927 Ab Jenkins raced against a train over a 125-mile (201 km) stretch between Salt Lake City and Wendover. Jenkins went on to set up a 10-mile (16 km) circular course on the salt which he used to establish 24 hour records in 1932 and 1933. The area became internationally famous in 1935 when Malcolm Campbell set a new land speed record, making him the first to break the 300 mph (480 km/h) mark. For the next 35 years, nearly all land speed records were set at the salt flats.The Bonneville Salt Flats are a 159 square mile (412 kmĀ²) salt flat in northwestern Utah. The depth of the salt has been recorded at 6 feet (1.8 m) in many areas.[citation needed] A remnant of the ancient Lake Bonneville of glacial times, the salt flats are now public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. It is the largest of many salt flats located west of the Great Salt Lake. Each rainfall erases tire marks and flattens the densely-packed salt pan that is inhospitable to plants. The area is extremely flat and aligned nearly perfectly with the shape of Earth

Mickey Thompson Breaks 400 MPH Speed Barrirer
Thompson's life in the fast lane provides ample material for the filmmakers. From the drag strips, to desert racing to land speed record challenges, to car building, designing and race promotion Thompson earned his place as a certified automotive icon. He started calling himself the Fastest American on Wheels in 1958 after setting a record of 194 miles per hour. His goal was to break the world record of 394.2 miles per hour set in 1947. He began to build a world land speed record car -- the Challenger 1. Thompson took his new car out to the Bonneville Salt Flats on October 6, 1959 and piloted it to a World Speed Record of 363.48 miles per hour. He also set a world speed record in A/BFS Class that remained unbeaten until1990 when Al Teague broke it at 389.372 miles per hour in his streamliner. In 1960, Thompson returned to the Bonneville Salt Flats with a modified Challenger 1 for another record attempt. Its four 410 cubic-inch engines secured his title when he set a new American record at 330.51 miles per hour. He bested the world speed with a run at 407 miles per hour (which was faster than any man had drive a car before) but crashed before he could make a second run and thus secure the official record. The Challenger 1 had its last record run two year later on July 24, 1962. The poor conditions of the salt flats halted the first attempt because he couldnt get any traction as the car bounced on the salt bed. He found a smoother part of the Flats for another run and turned in a speed of 357 mph. But he announced that the Challengers days on the Salt Flats were over. Source: www.greatcarstv.com S003

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 Clothes". 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 rowdy roadster. 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-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.
