    XLR color?

    pardon me for my ignorance... but i saw an xlr on the freeway today and dammmn its a sweet car. dont get me wrong, i've seen xlr many times but this one has got something that the others dont have. Its color! its got this light silverish purple going on. I pulled up next to it because i thought my eyes were playin tricks on me or something, but it was really that color.

    just wondering if thats a regular color choice, special color, or maybe just a great aftermarket paint job.

    now, im not a big fan of purple cars, but this car looked awsome in it. its just a really really light shade of purple...

    Re: XLR color?

    My favorite color for the XLR is "Satin Nickel" after seeing it in the "Vision" magazine for Cadillac enthiusiasts.(volume 6, issue 2) They do make a really dark, metallic blue, maybe that's what you saw?

    Here's the media group that is associated with the magazine, I haven't tried the addy yet, but maybe we can check back issues with it, and see the XLR article?

    Ralph, the color you saw was one of 99 XLRs so painted in Ultra Violet-Silverand is the Neiman-Marcus Edition, marketed thru the Meiman-Marcus retailer chain in American. If you want one, they are on e-bay from time to time. They sold out in 14 minutes after they went on sale thru the store, vis telephone call in. They run $85,000. Do a google search on the web for Neiman Marcus Cadillac XLR and you can see pictures & read about it. Next, will be Mary Kay's Mountain Laurel Pink cars, around 20 of them

    Strange the Vision article mentions "satin nickel" but perhaps they were referring to something else. Pink on an XLR?? <GAK> One of the most beautiful cars nonetheless. I've yet to see one in person, and I guess they sell them in the States before they come up here.
