Cadillac XLR

Expected in : 2014 Year
Price : 75 Lakhs - 76 Lakhs

 ABOUT:

The Cadillac XLR was a luxury roadster marketed by the Cadillac division of General Motors, assembled in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Intended to be Cadillac's flagship sports car, the XLR was based on the Chevrolet Corvette's Y platform. The XLR featured its own unique styling, interior, and suspension, and power-retractable aluminum hardtop, along with the Cadillac North star engine. The XLR ended production after the 2009 model year.
Cadillac introduced the XLR at the 2003 Detroit Motor Show and began production in the 2004 model year foreshadowed by the Evoq concept vehicle. The XLR features as standard equipment heated and cooled leather seats, wood interior trim, remote key less access, 18 inch alloy wheels, side airbags as well as a navigation, audio, and DVD system sharing a 7-inch dashboard screen. The retractable hardtop itself is constructed of aluminum, requires 6'-10 1/2" of vertical clearance during retraction, and is manufactured by a supplier joint venture between Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. The engine is Cadillac's 4.6 L North star tuned for 320 hp (238.6 kW; 324.4 PS), mated as of the 2007 model year to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The XLR was the second roadster offered by Cadillac in recent years. The first was the Cadillac All ante, produced from 1987 to 1993. The XLR was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award for 2004.
The Cadillac XLR-V was the high performance version of the XLR. It was an ultra-luxury segment car, first introduced in 2005. It was the successor to the Cadillac Allant√©, produced from 1987 to 1993. Cadillac gave the public its first glimpse of the supercharged XLR-V in its Super Bowl commercial, which aired February 6, 2005. Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch was also awarded an XLR. The car was formally introduced at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. The XLR- V should be easy to distinguish from the XLR, thanks to the raised center section of the hood, which shelters supercharger-related hardware, and the trademark V-series mesh grille. The XLR-V used the same supercharged North star V8 as the STS-V, though output was down somewhat. For the XLR-V, the engine was certified by the SAE to produce 443 hp (330 kW) and 414 lb·ft (561 N·m). The supercharger and four inter coolers were built into the intake manifold. A six-speed automatic transmission, larger brakes from the Z51 Corvette, and 19-inch wheels were used. The XLR-V could accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds. The magazine also timed it at 11.3 seconds to 100 mph (161 km/h) and recorded a 13.0 second quarter mile at 110 mph (177 km/h). Its top speed was electronically limited to 155 mph (249 km/h).
