: Are paddle shifters available on the XLR-V

I like to know about the paddle shifters and when they became available what model year. Also, is it the same as the C6 Corvettes that are available in 2008?

AFAIK no version nor year of the XLR ever had paddle shifters

To be specific, the XLR does not have "paddle" shifters like on the C6. However, it does have the same capability to manually shift just like "paddles", but you use the gear shift to change gears instead of using the "paddles" like on my C6. Same system, different method of shifting. To my knowledge "sport mode" shifting has been available and is standard equipment on all XLR's.

Oh! Thanks for replying. I like the paddle shifters but I can just as well step on the gas pedal too! Cannot wait to finally have one to try out.
