2009 Cadillac XLR-V Supercharged Start Up, Exhaust, Short Drive, and In Depth Tour
Pardon the voiceovers, had to fix some scenes that got destroyed by wind.
The day I filmed this car was one of the worst I've been through in a
while, thanks! In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2009
Cadillac XLR-V. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine
and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2005 Cadillac XLR Start Up, Exhaust, and Full Tour
I finally get to review a cadillac xlr! This is the first time that I have
seen one up close, let alone be able to check it out in detail so I was
really excited to be able to. This has the northstar V8 VVT engine, push
button start, bose sound system, navigation, and a retractable hardtop.
Pretty awesome car in person and the edgy design is beautiful. I give a
full in depth tour of the interior, exterior, engine and trunk, give a
demonstration of the top, sound system and more, enjoy everyone!
2008 Cadillac XLR-V Convertible Roadster A2617
The Cadillac brand is one of the most notable American icons with its long
line of noteworthy automobiles. Since its inception over 100 years ago,
Cadillac has been a pioneer in the industry with its innovative engines and
world class luxury. Fitting in with the legacy that Cadillac has
established is your new Black Raven 2008 Cadillac XLR-V. This awesome piece
of machinery features an incredibly muscular 4.4L 443 horsepower V8 engine with
414 lb-ft of torque. If you're interested in this car, then you've likely
already heard about or experienced the sheer exhilaration that comes from
just tapping the gas pedal. It is awesome. Plus with navigation, heated
seats, Bose stereo, XM satellite radio, rear park assist, and head up
display you'll have tons of convenience features to get you where you want
not only quickly but also comfortably. This is a truly impressive vehicle.
Let's take a closer examination of your new Cadillac XLR-V.
EXTERIOR: The BLACK RAVEN paint is in clean, shiny condition and the color
does an excellent job highlighting the sweeping roofline and
well-sculptured frame of this refined, high-end automobile! When you see
the V badges you will know you are about to drive one remarkable machine.
The 443 horsepower
engine is responsive and extremely powerful with its 4.4L liter
displacement and six-speed automatic transmission. It will likely be
difficult for you to avoid giving the car plenty of juice just because of
the wonderful growl that escapes the Exhaust and the spectacular connection between
driver and road. Let's not forget that this is a convertible! The power
hard top goes up and down with ease. To help you see where you're going,
the XLR-V is outfitted with HID head lamps with washers and Twilight
Sentinel. An additional safety feature are the fog lamps. The aggressive
and stunning look of the car is emphasized by the 19" wheels with
accompanying tires in good condition! These wheels along with the
performance tuned suspension help to improve the already outstanding
handling so much that you will be begging for curves. This is truly one
fine looking car. It also comes with the remainder of its four year/50,000
mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and five year/60,000 mile powertrain
INTERIOR: When you enter the cabin of this automobile, you'll immediately
understand why the XLR-V is one of the nicest American sport convertibles.
The EBONY leather bucket seats are in great condition as are the matching
mats and carpet. The seats feature eight way adjustment so that you will be
completely stable and comfortable. The leather also carries over to the
tilt steering wheel which has controls for the Driver Information Center
and cruise control. Helping you stay comfortable on chilly days, you'll
love the dual heated seats to keep you toasty. The navigation system is
spectacular and will assist you in reaching your destinations easily and
quickly. This unit also controls the Bose premium sound system which
includes AM/FM stereo, six disc CD changer, and nine speakers. With the
keyless ignition system, you can leave your key in your pocket and still
start the car. The vehicle will detect the key and with just the push of a
button the engine will roar to life. Thanks to the rear park assist system,
you will have audible alerts to what is behind you to help you avoid
needlessly backing into things that may be just outside of your normal
view. The Head Up display will certainly come in handy. You wont have to
take your eyes off the road to keep tabs on how fast you're driving. A
convenient read-out will reflect right onto the windshield so you'll always
be in the know. What awesome features! Some other great assets in your new
XLR-V are: dual climate control, tire pressure monitor system, power locks,
power windows, cruise control, V-series trim, universal garage door
transmitter, and cup holders. Your car also comes with factory mats, books,
and one key.
We invite you to enjoy perusing the many photos herein listed to get to
know your new XLR-V better. Remember, this is a used car. Although it is in
great shape, it will show some minor signs of wear. Consider also the great
savings you will have in purchasing a pre-owned automobile. This car
retailed new around $100,000! You will definitely enjoy paying thousands of
dollars less on this car which is still in fantastic condition.
Congratulations on making such a wise decision to own a car included in a
long legacy of fantastic cars with your new Cadillac XLR-V.

Cadillac XLR-V--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive and Review 2012 Chris Moran
Cadillac XLR-V--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive and Review with Chris
Moran. Presented by D&M Motorsports.
For those who wanted to go really fast and be coddled while doing it,
Cadillac created the XLR-V convertible, which was produced from 2006 to
2009. The V at the end of the car's moniker indicated that it was a
performance variant of Cadillac's XLR, but it could've easily stood for
viciously quick and very luxurious.
Viciously quick came courtesy of this Cadillac's supercharged V8, which
could send you hurtling from zero to 60 in less than 5 seconds. Taking a
cue from European ultraluxury manufacturers, Cadillac gave each V8 a
personal touch, with each being built from start to finish by a single
craftsman. Very luxurious was the end result of the wealth of standard
features that came on the Cadillac XLR-V roadster. Adaptive cruise control,
heated steering wheel, head-up display and a voice-activated navigation
system are just a few examples of the latter.
Unfortunately, the XLR-V just didn't stack up to its similarly priced
rivals from Germany, Britain and even within General Motors itself. The
XLR-V may have been vicious, but it lacked the slick handling, high levels
of refinement and interior furnishings others offered.
Most Recent Cadillac XLR-V
Designed to facilitate wind-tousled tresses and sun-kissed cheeks, the
Cadillac XLR-V was available only as a two-seat convertible with a
retractable hardtop. Aside from its high-performance innards, this special
XLR was distinguished from its less spirited sibling by a unique front
grille and a sculpted hood designed to accommodate the 443-horsepower V8's Supercharger. Sent to the rear wheels via a
manually shiftable six-speed automatic, all that thrust was good enough to
catapult the XLR-V to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
The XLR-V came one way -- fully loaded and was essentially unchanged during
its four-year production run. Perks like Bluetooth phone connectivity,
heated leather seats and adaptive cruise control were all standard. The
XLR-V's power-retractable hardtop could go from closed to open (and
vice-versa) in about 30 seconds. Though the XLR-V's interior was
attractive, trimmed with gleaming aluminum accents and burnished exotic
wood, it was still subpar compared to its similarly priced rivals. Also,
the cockpit was somewhat tight for taller drivers and cargo room was
limited as well.
During our time in the XLR-V, we found ourselves swept away on a wave of
raw power as the XLR was eager to leap to attention at the slightest tap of
the throttle. Its Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension was tuned to be
sportier than it was on the standard XLR and indeed provided sharper
handling seemingly with no penalty in ride comfort. But compared to its
more athletic and refined European rivals, the XLR-V still came up a bit
short as its steering was overly heavy and its handling wasn't as agile.
