Colors in Stock

MotorBoat, I agree with youre statement.

I figured I would tell you what I have experienced with 04 & 05 orders. Dealers that were ordering them for stock, were naturally going to order what they thought would be a safe/easy color to sell. Those colors would naturally be Crimson & Black Raven for a convertible.

That doesn't mean the people that wanted an XLR would have ordered either of those two colors. Since all my XLR's were pre sold for all of the 2004 model year and most of the 2005 model, the break down (below) is what each of my clients ordered for their XLR color choice. This should be more of an accurate picture of what color the consumer actually wanted.

Black Raven 40%
Light Platinum 35%
Xenon Blue 15%
Satin Nickel 5%
Crimson Red 5%
Thunder Gray 0%

Blue Steel is growing in popularity and will appeal to more ladies than the Xenon does.

Question

Does any one have a photo of the steel blue? I had my dealer order a steel blue with shale. He said that he wanted to see that, color even if I don't buy it, which is pretty cool!

Blue Steel Photos

For those of you that have wondered about the 2005 Blue Steel looks. When The carrier pulled up last week to deliver this new color, I was taken by surprise to see it in the carrier with little light on it, it cast a very unique appearance. I thought it was a shade of the Neiman Marcus Edition Ultra Violet.

Once the XLR was unloaded from the carrier I was able to see what I thought the color would be. That is about 80% medium blue with a cast of Violet/Lavender & Silver. I spent 2 days with it taking photos of it in various lights. For any 1993 Allante owners (Montana Blue) or 93-94 Cadillac owners you may remember Medium Montana Blue. It is not exact but it is very close, Blue Steel has a little more blue and less violet than Montana blue had.

I was hoping to have it longer but delivery times didnt quite work out, so I drove it to my clients home 145 miles away. You can see some photos of it that I have put up on the site.
Just click here www.cadillac-xlr.com/_wsn/page5.html

There is a very unique picture of all 6 of the 2005 XLR colors that were assembled at one time.

I guess we're going to need a new chart/poll incorporating the new color. Some of us still feel slighted that our Ultra Violets didn't get listed in the above "favorite color" poll. Who's to say that person who bought a black on black wouldn't prefer Ultra Violet... If you think you get looks driving around in your XLR, try it in Ultra Violet!

Ultra Violet

I saw one at the dealership the day we took delivery of ours . The color is just stunning. Its almost like a silk-on-silk Persian carpet, in that the color seems to change in accordance with the lighting conditions, and the sight line.

I did a complete 720 walking around it before I could pinpoint the color.

Obviously the rarest XLR. I noticed that it did not make Allen's photo link of "all" the XLR colors.

Blue Steel my new favorite

Allen, thanks for posting the photos, especially of the Blue Steel color! It looks gorgeous, and now my vote would definitely be for that combination, (along with the darker wood trim). In my opinion, that would be the classiest car available today! Thanks, too, for your efforts to present a photo of all the XLR colors alongside each other and nice and clean. Actually, the group photo clearly shows the great lines of the XLR regardless of color chosen.

P.S.--Blue Steel looks like the color used in the Cadillac ads with the commuter on a train speeding along and featuring the Blue Steel XLR.

2005 XLR now offers Dark Eucalyptus Wood Trim

LoveEldos, Thanks for the nice comment- I again dropped the ball & neglected to tell forum readers on how to view the new Dark Eucalyptus Wood Trim. A photo is available of the the Light & Dark individual pieces of wood.

You can also see the trim on the inside of an XLR.
Simply go to the interiors page: www.cadillac-xlr.com/_wsn/page3.html

Thank You
Allen (Mr XLR)

Well, my Blue Steel one will be here in the next couple of weeks, hopefully it will become my favorite color, hopefully this coming week so that I may show it off at Albuquerque Interntional Balloon Fiesta. Also, I have my 2004 Zenon Blue one for sale.
