2008 Cadillac XLR Roadster

2008 Cadillac XLR Roadster

Declining Cadillac sales in the 1990's forced General Motors to take a hard look at its luxury division and that marque's model offerings. New models were soon conceived including an Evoq concept, a two-door roadster that made its debut at a 1999 Detroit auto show. Five years later the Cadillac XLR was introduced, a model underpinned by the same platform used by the Chevrolet Corvette.

For consignment, Cadillac's venture into the sports car market. A 2-seater, retractable hardtop sportscar, with a Northstar 4.6 Liter V8 SFI coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission, loaded with the typical Cadillac amenities this ultra-low original (7,211) mile car presents with its factory Crystal Red Tintcoat exterior paint, and Cashmere leather interior trimmings. Also, Corvette suspension does not hurt either, unless you are the competition on the street.

Exterior
Looking much like it was carved with a knife on a wedge, angles surfaces deflect the wind over the rearward raked front horizontal bar grille, past the long pony style hood, and over the low-profile windshield and roof. Ultra-wide doors are fitting snugly between a long front quarter fender, and an angular sculpted rear quarter. More angled taillights frame the edges of the rear quarters and make their way around the outward V shaped trunk deck and lid then a large same angled neoprene bumper is below. Quad oval exhaust tips peek out from underneath. The hardtop fascinatingly disappears into the trunk area all automatically and does so flawlessly and with the flick of a switch. All panels are bathed in Crystal Red Tintcoat which is mostly factory paint with some repaint work obvious on the left front fender, door and rocker panel, and just a few faults throughout. Big 18-inch aluminum wheels are on all 4 corners.

Interior
Cashmere interior trim is inside and there are plenty of leather coverings in this color as well as Eucalyptus veneers and stitched surfaces. Nice comfortable buckets with high backs draped in shale leather are inside. These have several electrical adjustment switches, memory buttons, and built-in speakers. Between these seats is a spacious central console glove box and panel with more Eucalyptus and brushed stainless which houses the shift lever, and hard top toggle up and down switch. A deluxe steering wheel with plenty of buttons for hands on controlling of functions fronts analog backlit and a digital odometer gauges. In the center is a large information screen and just below a premium stereo. Nice tan carpeting floods the floors, and still has the dealer protective coverings on top if it.

Drivetrain
4.6 liters of Northstar V8 power with SFI and very clean and well maintained. On the back is a 6-speed automatic transmission and a 2.73 rear axle. Let's just call it showroom clean.

Undercarriage
All clean with plenty of lightweight aluminum castings, suspension ride handling system, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes in disc form, a transverse leaf spring upfront and transverse leaf springs for the rear. No rust, not even a hint of road dirt, nice and black with the corrosion free castings. Shades of the Corvette undercarriage.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter, and smooth runner, this car has nice acceleration, good handling and plenty of driver and passenger convenience options. The Cadillac sports car ride which was solid but smooth. All interior functions were in full working order.

A well preserved example of this one run car with a mere 7,211 miles clocked on her. Conveniences and luxury of a Cadillac, and Power and handling of a Corvette. It was successful because it combined comfort with sportiness and created a high-end market. A diamond cut car that can get rough if it needs to.
