    Yea good luck. Whatíd they produce maybe 2000 at its height and 200 per year in the end? Itís already gotten to point where some owners are ditching the car already because in just a few years itíll be next to impossible to buy replacement parts rendering the car a totaled if god forbid a crucial component needs replacing and it happens to be made of unobtainium.

    Theyíre predicting the Blackwing will be a worse nightmare than the Cadillac XLR which a simple tailight replacement can cost upwards of $6,000 dollars per lens cover. Good luck with that. Lol.

    I was talking to a guy who just sold his Blackwing for that very same reason. Itís a great car but he knew if it broke it could very well be totaled so he sold it while itís still hot.

    That black wing will only go up in valueÖ nice XLRís are 50-80. Just gotta be careful I guess. If itís a daily I would sell it but if it was a second toy car itís a nice investment.

    This pretty much sums up the dilemma with owning an XLR.




    And thatís given the fairly substantial number of about 15,000 total XLRís that were produced throughout its 6yr. run compared to what, maybe 2-3,000 Cadillac Blackwings? Also keep in mind all Blackwings arenít the same model car, which narrows things down even more.

    Imagine having arguably the most beastly horsepowered ICE engine ever conceived but regulating it to be a garage queen? Or drive the hell out of it and break something that renders the car basically totaled because you canít find parts you need to replace. Itís crazy.
