West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning and exceptional example of this 2008 Cadillac Eldorado XLR-V Supercharged V8 (Cadillac's top-of-the-line flagship luxury model) 2 Door Convertible with a low original 61K miles and very low production model (2004-2009) and an already collectible future classic!

The Cadillac XLR is was produced by Cadillac from 2003 to 2009 with only a single generation model and noted for its power retractable hardtop, the Bulgari designed interior instruments, rear-mounted transmission and was Cadillac's flagship model for these years. Introduced in 2003 with production starting with model year 2004, this luxurious variant of the Chevrolet Corvette, also manufactured at GM's Bowling Green, KY facility, the XLR shared its Y platform and composite bodywork construction with the Corvette with the XLR being the first production Cadillac with radar-based adaptive cruise control and the first to offer both heated and cooled seats. 

Whilst the C6 Corvette was powered by a 6.0L LS2 V8 engine and offered a six-speed manual transmission, the XLR featured  the Cadillac 4.6L Northstar V8 (supercharged in the XLR-V) and either a five-speed 5L50 automatic transmission, or a six-speed 6L80 automatic transmission. It produced 320 hp and 310 lbft of torque in the standard trim. Optional XLR equipment included polished aluminum-alloy wheels, exterior and interior color options, and different interior trim options.

The Cadillac XLR-V was the renown high-performance variant of the XLR with a whopping 443 hp. The car was formally introduced in 2005 and used the supercharged Northstar V8 with the supercharger and four intercooler cores which were built into the intake manifold. A six-speed automatic transmission and larger brakes from the Z51 Corvette and larger 19-inch wheels were used.

The XLR-V could accelerate to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and recorded a 13.0 second quarter mile at 110 mph. Its top speed was electronically limited to 155 mph.

The base price of the XLR-V in the US went from $97,485 ($141,513 in 2023 dollars) at launch to $104,215 ($141,649 in 2023 dollars) by the end of its run in 2009 and only some 2,188 models were built during its production run compared to over 15,000 XLR's.

This particular model must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - the car drives as good as it looks with Cadillac's famous smooth and luxurious ride - no shakes or rattles and the considerable power of it's supercharged 4.6 litre Northstar V8 engine purring almost imperceptibly under the hood! The engine is extremely strong and responsive with no oil leaks, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the temperature always remains cool. Drives virtually like a new car - you could hardly tell the difference!

The car was recently fully serviced at 'Santa Monica GMC' with a multi point inspection and can be considered turn key ready for its new owner.

This is one very unique and top-of-the-line flagship model in its penultimate year with a striking factory 'Triple Black' color - the real deal in future collectibles and this must surely be one of the finest example's with only 61K original miles available anywhere!
