    I am told that the Mary Kay Pink colored cars begin as Black Raven,
    and are then repainted at a different in house location, to their color.
    Therefore, their numbers are "hidden" within the Black Raven numbers.
    The Pink XLRs usually number around 30-35
    One (2008 !) gets service at the dealer I take my '93 60 Spcl. to. It is breathingly drop dead georgous !! Even has special silver bodyside emblem that says MARY KAY XLR

    There's two Mary Kay's in the Toronto area. They catch me off guard every time, I think they are white then I realize it's pink!

    I see one, often. Lives in the same county as I do. It's a 2008. Beautiful Car.
    The pink is very light & pearlized. I was told that there is ONE male selling MK products,
    and he is in Canada AND he is the #1 salesperson in the world for Mary Kay !!
    It's possibly his car you are seeing.

    Hello Sandy,
    the info you posted is interesting to me, i owned a 2004 xlr xenon blue, i currently own a 2007 xlr-v xenon blue, can you help me find info on xlr-v series production # 's and colors.

    this car was a auto executive showcar apparently,it was shipped to general motors corp. in detroit, and was never titled until i purchased.

    it had 677 miles on it when i picked it up, it was a lot of fun i live in fla. and found the car in charlotte,n.c. drove up and drove my new car back.
    i had found another in warren mich., but just missed out on the sale.

    i had corresponded with many dealers across country and was told by all, xenon blue was impossible to find in a v series / 2007
    it then came into conversations with the person who purchased the warren,mich. car that only 7 were produced that were v-series.
    it is documented on the original window sheet

    any help would be appreciated

    another ? i have heard they may discontinue the xlr line , have you heard anything

    thank you

    Sorry! I never checked back (until today) after posting the color breakout.
    Sadly, Cadillac did not seem to keep a split between the regular and the "V" Series of XLRs. Or if they did, it was not sent to me.
    The rarest one would be a Liquid Amethyst ! (None were ordered)!
    I never even saw a color chip of it.
    Mary Kay Pink would be the rarest, but we, the public cannot buy one.
    They must be repainted (black) before being sold.

    My fav is the Passion Red of 2007 - the Special Edition car. THAT is REALLY Corvette's bright red !

    MY 2007 Window Sticker has my color listed as Light Platinum. This list has that as an 08 color.

    Don,

    There is more than one name for some of the XLR paint schemes. The factory paint codes and dealer brochure paint chips differ in some model years: Liquid Amethyst/Golden Quartz, Machine Silver/Light Platinum in 2007 for example.

    If you use the paint code from your car's RPO sticker to buy a bottle of touch-up paint from the dealership, it will most likely be called Light Tarnished Silver.
