If such a file existed, the curious case of some vehicles would be a large, stuffed manilla folder with many chapters to it. The Cadillac XLR would certainly find a spot in there.
Regular Car Reviews picked out a 2005 Cadillac XLR for a shakedown, to uncover what this car means, who bought it and what the driver is likely listening to on a mixed CD their nephew burned for them.
The XLR was the only non-Corvette vehicle to be produced at a Corvette assembly plant, but it didn’t act like a Corvette. That’s because it was cushier, and used Cadillac’s long-departed Northstar V8 engine. It’s the Corvette for those who really didn’t want a Corvette at all.
It was a great vehicle on paper, bestowing Cadillac with a grand tourer like this, but it never executed the way it should have it real life. Delve into the XLR in the video above.
