This isn't just the standard engine with a blower plunked on top, but a well-executed piece of reengineering. Cadillac has beautifully integrated the blower onto what is almost a new engine. As an example, the intercooler is internal, four finned tubes lurking under the engine cover that look like they came off the back of a fridge.
The intake was tuned for maximum flow and what Cadillac considers just the right sounds, though arguably they tuned out too much supercharger whine. The muffler hums an appropriate Cadillac sound, but at full throttle converts to straight-through for better flow and a nastier note.
This supercharged package pumps out 443 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 414 lb.-ft. of torque at 3900, with 90 percent of the latter on tap from 2200 to 6000 rpm.
With its Corvette heritage, the XLR-V has a rear-mounted transaxle, but with a new 6-speed automatic that can be shifted manually and is programmed to minimize shifting when cornering.
Those supercharged Northstar numbers are shy of the SL55 AMG's 493 bhp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque, but the Cadillac's curb weight of 3870 lb. is some 400 less than that of the Mercedes. The result is a pair of supercharged luxury sports cars that get to 60 mph in the mid-4-second range.
