About Cadillac XLR
With the soul of a Corvette and distinctive Cadillac styling, the XLR is a stunner in hot red, or any other color for that matter. In the spirit of the classic Allante that it replaced, the Cadillac XLR was the brand's flagship sports car during its six-year production run. Like its predecessor, this luxury two-door convertible has a retractable aluminum hardtop sourced from Mercedes-Benz. The top Cadillac XLR comes equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and 4.7-liter V8 engine that delivers 320 horsepower. For those who want a sexier, faster XLR, there is the Cadillac XLR-V. The V represents an ultra-luxury, high performance version of the regular coupe. The XLR-V uses the supercharged V8 engine from the Cadillac STS-V, with four intercoolers to milk more than 440 horsepower out of it. The sportier coupe also has brakes borrowed from the Corvette Z51 performance package, 19-inch wheels, side fender vents, and an Alcantara-lined interior. It is true that Cadillac sport cars are a rarity, but you can still find them alongside a wide selection of Cadillac XLR parts on eBay.
