What would a 2021 Cadillac XLR roadster look like?May 20, 2020
An independent artist decided to dream up on the topic – what would a new generation Cadillac XLR sports roadster look like. The original car transformed its existence in 2009.
Cadillac was never able to achieve popularity for the XLR sports coupe. It was assumed that this model will be sold in circulation from 5,000 to 7,000 copies per year, but the best result that he showed was approximately 3800 copies per year. Even after updating the 2009 model, sales were estimated at only hundreds, and, obviously, this was not enough for the further development of the model.
This does not necessarily mean that the Cadillac model has completely failed. Yes, she was not one of the best sports cars on the market, but she had her own merits, including an ultra-comfortable interior with heated and cooled seats, remote access without a key, navigation system, 18-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch multimedia screen and a DVD player – everything comes as standard. This was more than enough for designer Kleber Silva to present his version of the sporty XLR 2021 model year.
His project is based on the latest generation of another American sports coupe Chevrolet Corvette C8, which means that the new XLR engine is installed behind the seats. The front of the Corvette is replaced by an impressive faceplate that seems to be inspired mainly by the 2021 Cadillac Escalade SUV. The “face” of the SUV fits surprisingly well into the overall design style and even makes us wish that the Cadillac actually introduced the receiver for its roadster.
Not so long ago, we wrote that a set of scissor doors is available for the Chevy Corvette C8. American tuning company Vertical Doors Inc. invites everyone to install scissor doors on their Chevy Corvette generation C8.
