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.

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on official racing events. This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more money than driving skills... (Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.) Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10 with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up, don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video. The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with money. Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre" is incorrect spelling.





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.





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-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.

my custom cadillac xlr show car. I painted it a few months ago and painted the rims to match the car, added lambo door kit, painted the headlights, smoked taillights, and custom molded the grille. I also added some pics of some other paint jobs i did.





2008 FR500C Ford Mustang GT at Bonneville Salt Flats

The FR500C Mustang achieved 251.74 officially, but needed to repeat the speed to lock down the record. The team is planning to go back to the Flats in October to capture the record.
