It is the Italian jeweler that designed the instrument cluster and key fob.

Wow, that's news to me, too. I actually never realized that they designed the instrument cluster. It makes sense on the XLR, though. It's a great car, so they probably put a lot of money into making it look great. Does anyone know any other facts on the design of the car and who did the design?

There is a great book written by John McCormick that you would enjoy with all the historical details about the Cadillac XLR. You can find it on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Cadillac-XLR-...r_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1265973520&sr=1-11

I think almost everyone on the forum has a copy. Many of us had our's signed by some of the people mentioned in the book at previous XLR gatherings.

UPDATE: Sorry to see the book is out of print on Amazon.com. Also, none listed on eBay. As a last resort, they are on sale on the XLR Boutique website:

(subscript; buyer beware, buy the book and run)

Every XLR owner should have a copy of this book.

Full of fascinating information and details about how the car came to be and lots of great technical details that really help you understand the car better.

Keep an eye out for one on eBay!

Bruce, thanks so much. It will sit right next to the Allante' book on the coffee table.
