Hi friends, look what I´ve found on Cadillacforums

Crozier was at the Drag Strip and they raced a C6 Z06 against a XLR V and the Z06 come down with 11.8 vs 12.0 for the XLR V.

That surprised me so much I almost couldn`t believe. Was it a tuned XLR, because as far as I know the XLR Vs will sell the first cars in Jan 06.

If it was a regular XLR V this car is fantastic. Isn`t it????????

I'd be very suspicious of that information too, Harry.

I'll be surprised if the "V" sees 12 second 1/4 mile times in stock form, and if it does it will be closer to 12.9, not 12 flat.

3700 lbs with 440 horses vs 3100 lbs with 500 horses (and a heck of a lot more torque) and they claim a .2 second split?:bs :bs :bs

Hi mswaim,
I´ve just checked out the quarter mile times from stock STS and XLR, it`s
STS 14.3 @ 97.5
XLR 14.0 @ 102.5

so if the STS V got a time of 13.2, the XLR V should come out with 12.8 or so!

Crozier on Cadillacforums didn`t answered jet, hope soon.

Yes my friend,
I will have a racer on my hands. I told you it had done 4.1 to 60 and you didn't believe old Bob. 12.0 and 11.8 is a car length in the 1/4 mile. What was the top speed in the 1/4?

Hi Bob, I had or still has a lot of work, that`s why you didn`t see me here often.

Yes, I wish these numbers would be right, that would be great!!!!!!!
The top speed was 12 @ 120 that means 12 sec to almost 200 kph (hey I love this).
If these numbers are right Bob, it takes us on a open road about 18 sec to see if your new V is governed or not:glol

The reason we find it hard to believe "old Bob" is the fact there is no proof the XLR-V will run 0-60 in 4.1 seconds. Some moron posting a thread to the internet claiming to have watched a race between a Z06 and an XLR-V is not much proof since he has no film, no time slip or other evidence to back up his claim.

Of course, "Old Bob" also tried to convince us that the ACC would bring his car to a complete stop without striking a fixed object in its path. :bs :glol :glol

Hi mswaim,
Bob knows that the ACC disables when the speed is falling below 10 kph (6 mph).
He asked me a long time ago to try this out on my XLR and that was my result.

For the XLR V, I hope there are soon some road tests to see what it is able to do.
For me, I would say it`s about 0.3 - 0.4 sec faster than the STS V and that would be around 12.8 - we`ll see.

Gee Hans, I remember a post from OLD mswaim that said there was no way the new V would have 440 HP, that adding a supercharger would not give it that much HP, not to mention other information that didn't hold water.
My information on this site has been accurate and consistant, especial with all the info I recieved about the V, long before anyone here even knew what the HP would be. I as well as many other members have been very helpful on this site in getting problems fixed or finding out how to fix them, while OLD Swaim jsut keeps running me in the ground for one indiscretion of 6 miles an hour versus a complete stop. Ba humbug on you OLD mswaim
I think Santa needs to put coal in OLD mswaim's sock at Xmas.
I mean, why is he even on this site, he doesn't own an XLR

Merry Christmas Hans

Geez Bob, you really should stay on the meds and while your at it take a moment and check your Depends, I think they are leaking again.

You are unique only in the fact you post more dribble and non-factual crap than any other member.

How about the "high level" source that told you the XLR-V would be capable of 0-60 in 3.8 seconds? Oh ya, that really is quality info.

In fact, how about the following piece from one of your posts where you bash the one true source of quality info on this forum: Well Allen,

I have read your sales pitch on your web site and if you think we people in the range of $76,000 to $82,000 are not happy with Gm for not coming to our rescue when things go wrong, Imagine the "elite luxury performance buyers whose discriminating tastes may require an additional level of service", will feel when their V's start faltering and nothing is done by Gm to accommodate these high end buyers.


This from a guy who now wants us to believe he's standing in line to plunk down $100,000 to a dealer he was badmouthing just a few short months ago.

I'm glad I was here to see the result of your dealer reading your posts and forcing you to post an apology for your childish rantings about him.

Yea, there is a lump of coal here, but I don't think it's in my sock....................:glol :glol :glol :glol

How much do you charge to haunt houses. It's time for you to cross over and go into the light, maybe then we can get some rest.
Still playing bad cop?

Hey, it's all about honesty and integrity - I know the words are foreign to you, however even the oldest dog can learn. Take a lesson from your own playbook, when the ghost of Christmas past comes to call try repenting again. What the heck, it worked the last time.........:glol :glol :glol

Go ahead Bob, put me on the "ignore" list again. :glol :glol :glol

Keep tying I'm not reading

It's all going on deaf ears old mswaim, ignore is in effect, maybe the rest of the folks will see you for what you really are. the northbound end of a donkey headed south. go find someone else to stick pins into.

So Bob - how goes the Lemon law claim? Has your attorney successfully litigated your case for you or are you just going to step up and take a huge loss on the trade, pay MSRP for your XLR-V and watch your dealer as laughs all the way to his bank with your money? :glol :glol :glol

My God, how can you look at yourself in the mirror every morning knowing your dealer forced you to post a letter of apology on the net - and you are still standing in line hat in hand willing to buy another vehicle from them?

How sad.....................Oh, my bad. I forgot I am on your ignore list.

mswaim, you will be the last one to know what's going on with what kind of a deal I have made, but it will beat the crap out of whatever deal you made. la la la la la la, I'm not listening!

Mighty bold talk Bob, considering you don't have anything to back it up. You continue to talk as though you actually own an XLR-V, when in fact you don't have squat, nor do you have any credibility to bank on.

The fact is you have been talking about lemoning your current ride for more than 6 months with no luck, I on the other hand settled my problems in a two week period and walked away the clear winner.

There can be no better deal Bob, face it...........

Please put me back on your ignore list, at least that way you won't continue embarrassing yourself.

Wonder if old Bob has the balls to put his money where his mouth is. How about a race for pink slips on his new XLR-V. If he really thinks it can do the times he claims, let's put it up against my bone stock SLK55, which I'm quite positive is quite a bit quicker.

0-60? 1/4 mile? Road race? Any way you slice it the XLR-V won't keep up.

It's an awesome car, and I wouldn't mind a bit having one, but there's no way it puts down those numbers stock and the magazines certainly confirm it.

If you'll take notice, OLD Dozer, I never said this. Pay attention to where I heard it. Iwas merely reporting what I had heard. and yes your 55 will beat my new V if your look at the numbers in Road & Track............By 1/10 of a second to 60. Big Fn Deal What did you pay for your SLK55?
