    Cadillac XLR

    '16 Z06, "06 XLR-V Infra Red-Sold, RII, RIII & RIV survivor, Mdwst Maurader

    Default Mary Kay XLR's

    The Mary Kay cars were all leases and the contract with Cadillac stated at the end of the lease the cars had to be returned and sent to be repainted back to the original color. From what I understand, the cost to repaint was Mary Kay's responsibility, but after the demise of the XLR, Cadillac didn't push the issue. Many of the later leased vehicle were offered to the current drivers to buy or they went back to the dealer and were supposed to be repainted. Since there were so few, I don't think either Cadillac or Mary Kay have pushed the issue. Only Mary Kay's top sales people received the XLR's; lower down the sales ranks they would received the SRX to drive; in pink of course. I have a customer whos wife had a pink XLR and took the buyout when they offered it to her. It's still pink and she rarely drives it. I see it maybe 2-3 times a year.

    I’m sure that some cars are sold before the repaint, or perhaps repainting the XLR was so cost prohibitive that it was decided to just sell the returned units as is.

    In any case, you have a pretty rare car on your hands.

    If there is information in the Registry that is incorrect, please let me know.

    If you have your window sticker and it's not in the Registry with your listing, please send me a photo of it so I can include it in your listing. It also helps verify that the information in the Registry is accurate.

    I spend most of my winter in Palm Desert CA. and the other day a Mary Kay XLR was at the lights across from me. The car looked really sharp and would be a conversation piece for sure. Have fun.

    I own my Dream Car. What ELSE could a girl ask for? Ahem...how about plenty of gas, plenty of time and a straight stretch of road as smooth as a baby's butt so I can drive her the way she deserves!
