Cadillac became the first American automobile manufacturer to win the coveted Dewar Trophy for the standardization of automobile parts.
The Dewar trophy was instituted in 1904 to encourage technical progress. It was awarded annually to the company making the most important advancement in
the automotive field. Cadillac continues to be one of America's most elegant cars.
"GMs flagship division didnt need to do much with the XLRs styling to prepare it for "V" duties, but the addition of new ten-spoke 19-inch alloy rims, black-painted brake calipers and special badging increase the desirability factor, as does a new hood scoop, polished wire-mesh grille and more aggressive stainless steel exhaust tips."
