2009 XLR spotted sans camo

Well, we knew that Cadillac was working on some changes for the 2009 XLR, now we can see them in these undisguised mules.

TCC  09 XLRExterior changes are fairly minor with new integrated exhaust tips inspired by the upcoming CTS Coupe, fender vents seemingly owing more the Jaguar than the 2008 CTS/STS designs, and freshened front styling that brings the CTS grill design to the flagship.

Unknowns still include the interior and powertrain options we’ll see when the 09 XLR debuts later this year.

    Constant wispers are being heard that a manual transmission will be offered on the 09′ XLR. I am a 05′ XLR and 06′ SRX owner.

  • That would be a great way to differentiate the XLR from the Mercedes SL (which is auto-only).

    I’d like to see that.
