The 2008 Cadillac XLR-V is a stunning power retractable hard-top roadster.
The 2008 Cadillac XLR roadster blends the heart of a Corvette with the upscale fittings of a Cadillac. Carried over from 2007, the XLR exhibits a level of luxury and convenience that even the 'Vette cannot claim.
The XLR's retractable hardtop roof takes comfort and convenience to a new level. Forget about ragtops when it comes to this roadster. With the push of a button, go from a coupe that keeps the elements and road noise out, to a wind in your hair roadster - all in less than 30 seconds.
Power comes from a 4.6 liter Northstar V8 that generates 320 horsepower, transferred to the rear wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission.
EPA estimates are 15 miles per gallon city, 24 highway. Impressive numbers for a V8 engine.
Base MSRP for the 2008 Cadillac XLR is $79,150 and comes standard with nearly every option checked off.
Looking like a Corvette from the future, the Cadillac XLR has road scorching V8 power in a well tailored and handsome package.
