The bold new era of Cadillac continued with a new luxury roadster: XLR, unveiled at the 2002 North American International Auto Show. A two-seat, retractable hardtop convertible, the XLR brings a fresh perspective to the upper echelon of luxury roadsters.
XLR is a combination of unique style and technology. Based on the award-winning Evoq concept car, XLR will feature the first application of a higher output 4.6-liter Northstar engine in a rear-wheel-drive configuration. This new Cadillac was developed on the next generation of GM`s highly acclaimed performance car architecture, designed specifically for convertibles.
"XLR is a luxury roadster with performance car roots," said David Hill, vehicle line executive for GM performance cars. "Underneath its striking exterior style, XLR has a patented performance car body structure that is ideal for a roadster and serves as a strong foundation for a car designed for great agility and bona fide luxury."
