Corvette for baby boomers
on Fri Apr 27 2018
The car is beautiful, fast and comfortable. All the amenities as you would expect in a Cadillac.
The hard-top roof disappears into the trunk and changes into a beautiful convertible.

Caddy built on World Class Corvette Chassis

on Thu Nov 16 2017
I bought and -still- own this built in the Kentucky USA Corvette Factory 2008 XLR C6 chassis base in May of 2016 used with 14,403 miles. By 11/16/17 I have driven it 4,800 miles. 1,000 mile I-80 Road trip. Up steep graded Rocky Mountain switch backs, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole. I have been a car enthusiast since the 1960's owning some darned good ones, including 6 Cadillacs. I do cars shows with this XLR. It is a Cadillac'd C6 magnetic ride suspension with a great smooth running quick Northstar V8 engine & 6 speed auto transmission. It does 0-60 in 5.5-6 sec & quarters in the high 13's to low 14's. I don't know what the top is, but it's beyond 145mph with rock solid road handling at 145. It's a top of the line highway cruiser averaging 28.7 mph on a 1,000 mile I-80 road trip. Just like the World Class Corvette, you can't outperform or outclass XLR's with any other luxury sports car in the world without spending one heck of a lot more money.

A road car with a forgiving suspension

I purchased my XLR in January 2010, it had 8,500 miles on it. The car was garaged until March and then driven on a daily basis (as long as it wasn't raining! The handling and comfort were exceptional. I should not that I traded a 2002 Lexus SC 430 for this car and I purchased the Lexus new in 2001. The XLR is far more car than the SC 430 and performs better. The Lexus did offer more interior and trunk space, but I gladly gave that up for the style and performance of the XLR. We drove the XLR from Indiana to Gaspe', Quebec, Canada a trip of over 3,300 miles and did it in nine days. The car performed superbly and got 28 mpg on the highway. The suspension was the big difference, it never was sloppy, but it did provide a reasonably controlled ride regardless of the road conditions which was hard to believe since the tires were "run flats" which always give a rougher ride. If you look at used XLR don't be surprised at the higher than normal mileages, people who own them love to drive them!

The most disappointing car I have ever owned. Much maintenance needed, replaced the Trans, entire center stack, radio, disc, nav system, front sway bars, radiator, roof retracting jammed over and over, and much more too numerous. I practically gave it away at 16,000 miles, took a beating on my purchase price, Bought for $78K, traded it in for $39K. I will never buy another Cadillac product.

It’s good and I would love to own one again
They need to make it v6
It was bad on gas but it’s fast car
Also many people interested to have this car
The space for the passengers and driver need to be more bigger

Please just crush it! This car is only worth the value of the parts that can be stripped of it. I think the price has a type and is really $7500
