2009 Cadillac XLR-V

2009-cadillac-xlr-v Jalopnik managed to snag a shot of the upcoming 2009 Cadillac XLR-V.  If you’re not up on Cadillac-speak, “V” means really farking fast.  The current XLR-V makes do with a 443 HP 4.4 liter Northstar V8.  The big question on the 09 XLR-V is this – will it stick with the blown Northstar, or use the supercharged 6.2 liter V8 from the CTS-V?  It would almost seem ridiculous to use a smaller, less powerful engine than it’s cheaper sibling in the Caddy lineup.  For that reason, I’m voting for the supercharged 6.2 – what do you think?
