      The biggest shame was that the XLR - V had the same dumb motor. Why couldn't they have used a LS1 or LS6. Made is a classed up version of the Vette.

      It already *is* a "classed up version of the vette." It's a C6 chassis with a Northstar.

      More in keeping with the Caddillac brand image, smoother/quieter, more "tech" (dohc vs ohv). Probably more perception than anything else.

      They could probably have sold it for less money with a LSx, though. I think what really killed the XLR was price. It was too close to a Mercedes SL in price, which was a better-performing car with more brand appeal.
