Cadillac was founded in 1902 as a private company and is considered one of the first automotive brands in the world and the fourth in the United States. Its iconic emblem is the city of Detroit's founder, Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac's coat of arms. After being acquired by GM, Cadillac became their luxury automaker brand. The luxurious roadster Cadillac Allante ended its production in 1993, and in 2003, that gap was filled with the introduction of the Cadillac XLR, which was produced until 2009. Step into an all-American luxury roadster and cruise the streets with this 2008 Cadillac XLR that bears just 39,253 miles on the odometer and is in fantastic condition.
For a time, American cars were known to be either very muscular or rather bland, even the top-end cars, and just a few were there to redeem that image during the early 2000s. One of these cars is the 2008 Cadillac XLR which features a sleek yet angular design with a timeless roadster look. The car is a wide beast more akin to a land yacht painted in white, and that is visible when you face its trapezoidal HID headlights flanking the slim 3-bar chrome grille, while lower, the front bumper is host to a pair of front fog lights and a gloss black air dam. Further enhancing its exoticness, it features vertical or Lamborghini-style doors. Blacked-out taillights and a third brake light consist of the rear, along with a quad exhaust tip right at the bottom middle of the rear bumper. The hardtop, finished in black, slides into its recessed area at the touch of a button. It sits on a set of aftermarket wheels painted in black with the crest in the center. The interior is finished in a Cashmere and Ebony design with an instrument cluster designed by Bulgari. Trim includes genuine eucalyptus wood and aluminum. The seats feature heating and cooling along with Bose stereophonic speakers. The seller reports that the original stereo has been replaced and is given with the sale, with a Kenwood double din setup currently installed in the car.
The 2008 Cadillac XLR is not just the looks; in fact, it shares an engine that was used in a 'Vette, specifically the 4.6L Northstar V8 engine coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Power output is at 320hp along with 310 lb.ft of torque. O-60 is clocked in at an impressive 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
