    Michael Jordan Picks Cadillac XLR-V

    Michael Jordan Picks Cadillac XLR-V

    Perhaps taking a cue from rapper Snoop Dogg, who buttonholed Dieter Zetsche for a new Chrysler 300C, former Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan took delivery of one of the first 2006 Cadillac XLR-Vs in the country from none other than Cadillac general manager Jim Taylor.

    IL has learned that Taylor had his team personally deliver the car to Jordan`s home here. In fact, Cadillac drove over an entire semi-truck with three XLR-Vs — representing each of the three exterior colors (Infra Red, Black Raven, Light Platinum) — so that the basketball legend could pick his favorite.

    Jordan chose a red car. The purchase price: a cool $100,000. As a little extra, Cadillac threw in a set of custom side sills with Jordan`s signature etched in aluminum, insiders told IL.

    Jordan is said to have confided to Taylor that he has 40 cars in his personal collection but that the XLR-V is his first American car

    Wow, it must be nice to wake up and think about what time your new Cadillac(and an XLR-V at that!!)will be delivered to you.

    cool story, but its not his first american car.

    when i was at northwestern they filmed a hot dog commercial on campus and we saw him leave. he was driving his vette ZR-1.

    I second that. I had a picture of him, getting out of his 93 40th anniversary ZR-1, on a wall at work. This was circa 1993. I only had the pic, because I thought it was cool he owned the same car I did. I had a 90 ZR-1 at that time.
