The 2009 supercharged Cadillac XLR-V is the quickest, most agile and most exclusive Cadillac ever offered, combining advanced technology with hand craftsmanship that harkens back to Cadillac’s origins as a custom luxury coach builder.

Its 443-hp supercharged Northstar V-8 is hand-assembled to exacting standards at GM’s Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich. Each engine is built from start to finish by a single expert craftsman. The engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift Control. This powerful combination enables 0-to-60 (mph) acceleration in less than five seconds. The XLR-V includes numerous chassis enhancements for outstanding performance, developed and tuned in some of the world’s most demanding environments.

The interior features extensive use of leather-wrapped surfaces, created by craftsmen who cut, wrap and sew leather components individually.

I don’t think this XLR-V will be sporty if they just have some soft-edges like you are requesting.

The front fascia is lacking with soft fluidic designs and too edgy for me. Maybe they could soften all those existing edges.

Looks like a robot car. But for me this is the real taste of luxury car that one should try. I love it.

After a 12-year absence, Cadillac is destined for Australia later this year under the watchful eyes of GM Premium (currently managing Saab & Hummer), and we are holding our breaths in anticipation for several hot models. This morning our American based photographer caught the new 2009 Cadillac XLR V-Series as it made its way around town.
