But now, I want to talk about my wonderful current car: the fabulous
2006 Cadillac XLR Roadster. (2009- )
The XLR (2004-2009) is an exceptional car. It is based on the Cadillac concept car called the Evoq. It's almost an exact duplicate which is unusual in the automobile world for such a design to make it to market. I followed the design through the years, watching it carefully.
In 2004, it became an actual production car.
My car is the 2006 Cadillac XLR, Limited Edition Star Black, 2-seat, hardtop convertible—number 50 of 250. She has a 320 hp Northstar V-8 engine, aluminum and magnesium body, Xirallic fleck paint, chrome wheels and grille, radar-controlled cruise control, rear parking assist, swivel headlights, magnetic ride control, 250-watt nine speaker Bose surround sound system, Bvlgari instruments, heated and air-conditioned eight-way seats,
run flat tires, and the key fob kept in your pocket allows entry and pushbutton start and locks car when walking away. It has navigation, OnStar, and a head up display on the windshield—altogether a beautiful package—quick as the wind and rides like a dream
