07 STS V in Thunder-Gray

Hi there,
Im very interrested in a Thunder-Gray STS V or CTS V, does anyone of you have some pictures of this color?

My 04 XLR is thunder-gray but I think it`s not exactly the same color as mine is.

I would appreciate if someone could post some pics.

Here`s a pictire of my Thunder-Gray

Thank you BigJoeD,
I think the thunder-gray on the 07 CTS V will look very good too. Still didn`t find any pics of this color on the net but Ill keep on searching.

Here`s one more pic of my XLR

OMG that is one pretty car my friend!!!!!

They have or had the CTS-V in the blueish-grey color which I thought looked good, but it MOST definately looks better on the XLR-V, WOW!!!

That's a 100k well spent I still have to work my way through the ranks. I've got the CTS-V so it's a start

Sorry BigJoe, hope you`re not dissapointed but it`s an 04 XLR, not a V.
I put the V grille on and couple of months ago I got the original V wheels from a friend in Aliso Viejo/Ca. He put some aftermarked wheels on his V.

One good point about my 04 export model, it`s not speed governed. Top speed 292 kph (181 mph). When I was in june for the XLR-Rendezvous in LA and ABQ we drove with my friends new V top speed 158 mph - then the speed limiter cuts in. (we did it twice)

To start with a CTS V is a good thing, drove 2 of them in the US and love em.

That's a pretty impressive pseed there harryxlr. Are you going to add the supercharger to your xlr?

Hi torchredfrc, long time not talking. I would but the the V`s 4.4 liter sc doesn`t fit my 4.6 North*

My stock XLR runs pretty fast, had GPS times 0 - 100 kph (62 mph) of 5.5, would be 0-60 mph about 5.1 or 5.2 not bad, only changes is my Corsa system and as you see my wheels and grille.

Here`s a picture I took myself doing 282 kph (175 mph) by HUD. The tire warning light was with the wrong TPM`s - you know but pressure was correct.

It's a shame the supercharger won't fit, that would be a damn impressive addon. Incredible picture by the way. Now you're really making me wish my car wasn't in the shop when you guys were in Abq.
