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.

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.

2004 Cadillac XLR Retractable Hardtop Convertible
I thought you'd like a look at this beautiful 2004 Cadillac XLR. It is a
convertible that features a very cool retractable hardtop. This car was
built for performance and comfort. The exterior is painted in Crimson Pearl
with a black leather interior. The XLR was built on the same platform as
the Corvette but had a $30k premium over the Corvette. This car is powered
by Cadillac's Northstar 32 valve V8 with 320 h.p. mated to a 5 speed
automatic transmission. This combination will give you 25 mpg on the
highway. The XLR has only 42,000 original miles with less than 1k miles on
the new tires. This car has power everything! Options include: Power
Windows, Power Locks, Power Heated Seats, AM/FM/CD player, GPS and Push
Button start to name a few. For some fun in the sun all this Caddy asks for
is a touch of a button and the Power Retractable hard top disappears!
Thanks for taking a look!
