The Cadillac XLR is a luxury roadster that was intended to be Cadillac's flagship sports car. Featuring its own unique styling, interior, suspension, and power-retractable aluminium hardtop, the XLR ended production after the 2009 model year. The car was based on remaining Chevrolet Corvette C5 assemblies due to GM's transition to the C6. Cadillac introduced the XLR at the 2003 Detroit Motor Show and began production in 2004 and it was the first production Cadillac with radar adaptive cruise control. The XLR features as standard equipment; heated and cooled leather seats, wood interior trim, remote keyless access, 18 inch alloy wheels, side airbags as well as a navigation, audio, and DVD system sharing a 7-inch dashboard screen. The XLR was the second roadster offered by Cadillac in recent years, the first being the Cadillac Allanté, manufactured from 1987 to 1993.
