  • Cadillac xlr to Ferrari California

    Hi,

    Anybody ever considered to use the Cadillac XLR as a donor for a California build? At first i looked at the mercedes sl because over here they are cheap and very common but the downside is that the wheelbase is about 4 inches too short and the rear overhang too long. Then i noticed the Cadillac and saw that the dimensions are very, very similar too the ferrari. I know the California isn't the most popular and desirable model but if you look at Novitec Rosso or Wheels and More, they can be turned into impressive cars.

    Maybe someone should do an overlay and judge for yourself how close it is.

    XLR looks real good. I have two concerns with that donor.

    1) is the XLR a two seater?

    2) Man that's an expensive donor.

      They can be found under $10000 with light body damage (you'll be changing hood and fenders anyway) so it's a great platform

      Yes it's only a 2 seater

        Enzo designs did the California on a BMW z4 a couple years ago. They were used in an Aston Kutcher movie. They were offering the molds for sale.

                I think a corvette is also appropriate
