Before the XLR-V, my last 3 toys were 2 Vipers and a ZR-1. This much HP in an automatic is a whole new experience for me. By far, the most fun I've had with any of my previous toys. The car also has some serious gawk factor. Be prepared for lots of questions from innocent bystanders.
I picked up my new infrared XLR-V today. I avoided I75 and took the backroad, Hwy 41, back to Gainesville from Tampa, about 120 miles. It was a beautiful day, so we rode with the top down; it felt great, and the road allowed a nice range of speeds for the initial break in. It is definitely an eye catcher, and a few quick bursts while passing other cars allowed a hint of the power. This should be a lot of fun.
