    Cheers guys!

    flashisflamable - I was intendting it to be a (very!) hardcore racery-thing, like the Radical in my post (which is also road-legal, well just anyway)

    I'm working on an update if anyone's interested.

    Wow! You did so good that I thought that was the picture of the real racecar! oops... I had forgotten what the real ones look like so I assumed that that was the real one. Anyway, good chop!

    sorry, but one thing street legal cars need is a windshield

    I like the idea. It would make a great collector car and, I hope, play a key role in improving the image of Cadillac in Europe.

    I suppose - but it would certainly boost Cadillac's performance credentials.

    Come on guys, 81 views and only one comment?! I know I'm not the greatest chopper but I'm not that bad at ideas!

    Cadillac Northstar LPR (Limited Production Run)

    As the title says, (in the ideal world obviously) Cadillac will be making 50 of these cars for the USA and Europe; 100 cars as a total production run.

    So, what I thunk of was a basic, stripped out, high performance racecar-cum-barely-legal-road-car, like the Radical SR3 pictured below, a V-division special if you like.

    (Radical SR3)



    So, I figured I'd basically just make the Northstar LMP racing car into a slightly softer, less visually challenging vehicle. It may not be much to the eye, but the Cadillac stripes, a personalised number were all left on but the others (numerous screws that ruined the flowing lines aswell) were all taken off as they didn't suit the market I was aiming for - ie slightly-driveable-on-the-road track car usually driven by professional drivers and trackdayers.

    It's not much, but I kinda like it in it's own odd way. Suggestions and c/c are welcome, though nothing too advanced as I'm crap at photochoppery. So here it is: The 2007 Cadillac Northstar LPR.



    ~Cheers!
