    That is the most awesomest color for an XLR.

    Thanks, guys. The car is beautiful and drives like a dream. As far as performance and handling compared to the CTS-Vs, I'm babying it so far to give it a short breakin period, but I can say it is a totally different ride, much more refined. It feels very fast, although I haven't put the pedal to the metal yet. I can't say which I like better; they're just very different. I love 'em all. I may have to put a supercharger on one of the CTS-Vs to get a better comparison.

    Beautiful car, take care of it.. Looks awesome in the sun.

    I go to my son's Little League game yesterday and I am driving through the dirt lot and I do a double-take.. There's a black 06 Z06 right there, dust everywhere, minivans and pickup truck heaven, can't imagine a worse place to park such a nice car..

    Five coats of Zaino Z2 with Z6 between each layer topped off with Z8 Grand Finale and this baby is looking good! Clay barred first, of course. Shines like a ruby in the sun.

    Hans,

    Very nice. Is that light platinum? It almost looks like stealth grey.

    You'll love the V version when you get a chance to drive it. Very fast!

    Thank you John, mine is an 04 in "thunder gray" with shale interior.

    June 7th will be the day when I get to drive the new XLR V from a friend in California. We go in his new V to the XLR Rondezvous to Albuquerque/NM.

    Have a nice week

    Hans

    Drove it last week in the US. This car is absolutely fantastic. We had it up to 158 mph were the speed limiter shut off. On my export-XLR there`s no speed governor and I hope this will be on the export V too.

    As soon as the car arrives here in Germany IŽll get me one

    You won't regret it. These cars are fun. 158! I need to find a desolate stretch of highway.
