    Cadillac XLR

    2009 XLR Platinum

    Default PHOTOS OF MY CADILLAC XLR - 2009

    These are photos of the 2009 XLR in Rome - The first photo is the XLR on the via della Conciliazione that leads up to St Peters in Vatican City. As is the third shot - you might see that this car has got the European tail lights that flash amber when the hazards are on or when you turn left or right. The second photo is the garage in Rome next to the 2008 STS-V and the 2013 CTS-V. The Buick and the garage belong to a friend. There are another 50 cars there but you cannot see them in the photo.

    Now that I have figured it out Ill add a few more:Show Us Your XLR-cadillac-xlr-2009-2-jpgShow Us Your XLR-cadillac-xlr-2009-front-bumper-jpgShow Us Your XLR-cadillac-xlr-rome-2013-6-jpgShow Us Your XLR-cadillac-xlr-2009-side-mine-jpg The first one is a stop in February 2010 when I drove it from Antwerp down to Rome. That is a stop on the A4 Highway from the South of France to Genova. The second photo is a stop at a gas station and you can see the accumulated salt from the drive. Yes I did switch out my standard wheels and put the XLR V wheels and tires on. The third shot is late summer 2013 in Rome parked next to the Ara Pacis museum along the Tiber. And the fourth one is a photo at a rest stop - car spent a lot of time filling up because at speeds above 200 kmh it guzzles.

    Nice pics! I'm sure you get a lot of looks, as there aren't many XLR's across the pond.

    No there are very few XLRs, STSs and CTSs. They get a lot of looks - especially in Italy. It is the kind of car design that Italians, a nation of car lovers, really like and also because it is so different to what is on the street. And Italy and Europe is the place to drive it - the roads are spectacular, the highways speed-unlimited, and the cops are few and far between. Not for nothing are Italian roads twice as safe as our roads back in the USA.

    True - notwithstanding that the UK buys more luxury and sports cars than other countries in Europe it is not a place to drive - bad weather; bad roads and omniscient photo radar. So here I drive a Smart and it is fine for me. When I want great food, California weather, among the best roads in Europe and a tolerant constabulary then I fly to Rome to drive - as I am next weekend for 3 days before heading back to the States for two weeks.

    Default Listed on Ebay out of Michigan

    I've been searching for about 6-8 months on various web sites, Ebay, Autrader, Cars.com,etc.
    It's a nerve racking buying on the web, too many scams going on. Just hold your money until you see the vehicle.
    I recently sold my street rod (1956 Nomad) and even had some Car Carrier scams. One guy just called and said he was ready to pick up the car, I never heard of him, so I buzzed him off.

    I'm spending lots of time detailing this beauty, well worth it.

    Is that the one that came with a GM autograph from an anniversary parade?
    Nice car I really do like the color. The first V I ever seen was that color with the light interior. I fell in love with that one but then when I started looking I kept leaning to the raven and that is what I ended up with. I am sure you will enjoy it. I take mine out for any excuse I can. Only good with the top down so that can restrict my driving time. Enjoy
    V Happy
