Default New Caddi coming out...

Has anyone seen the new Cadillac 2 seater coming out (XLR Roadstere convertible) its a hottie, folding hard top with the push of a button, (v-8 4.6 liter Northstar, 320 horsepower) the sticker price is estimated to be $75,000, I wonder what kind of demand is going to have....

I saw it in the Toronto Star Wheels section last weekend. It will have as much draw as the Lexus SC430 convertible and the Mercedes CLK 320. They are about the same size.

Die hard Baby Boomer Caddy fans will jump all over this beast. It looks sharp IMO

They did put the LS6 from the Z06 into the upcoming CTS-V and detuned it to 400hp.

Yeah I thought they should have the LS6 too. I have seen a couple in person actually. They look real nice. One in Royal Oak at the top of a parking structure and one on the road that my subdivision is on.

Oh woops I forgot to ask:

Does anyone here remember the Cavillac Evoq from back in 1999 or 2000 (I think).

This looks like the fruition of the Evoq concept car. This new one looks like a toned down Evoq, buts I really like the sharp lines of this new Caddillac

Tru Dat!!! I really like the new direction that Cadillac is taking.

The whole Evoq to XLR is good example of the concept to actuall product idea, which is becoming more common. So keep a look out for concepts; they just might become the next new car your drooling over as it drives down the road.
