The razor-sharp angles of the XLR stand out among the streamlined roadsters that clog our highways—which is a little ironic, considering it's modeled after a stealth aircraft. This summer, Cadillac is updating its edgy two-seater with a larger grille and an even sharper front end. Only 2,500 will be produced, and they'll come in two varieties: the Platinum ($85,000) and the XLR-V ($100,000), which has a supercharged 443-hp Northstar engine assembled almost entirely by hand by a single craftsman. Each version has a hardtop that retracts in less than 30 seconds, the power to outrun a Porsche, and a look that outclasses a Bentley. Ian Daly
