Aimed at the Mercedes-Benz SL500, Jaguar XKR, and Lexus SC 430, the Cadillac XLR is essentialy a C5 Corvette Convertible wrapped in plastic body panels, powered by the Cadillac Northstar V8 engine.

Obviously it's not quite that simple! But that's the basic idea.

The interior of the XLR was significantly better than the car on which it was based, not difficult considering the cheap-feeling plasticky interior of the C5 Corvette. It had more comfort features including heated and cooled leather seats, wood trim, sat-nav, and a DVD system with a 7-inch screen.

The roof of the Cadillac XLR was a lightweight aluminium unit which folded away neatly into the rear trunk.
