Refreshed XLR-V spotted

We've gone from no idea of an XLR refresh to a quick 1-2 spotting of both the freshened XLR and now the XLR-V. In this case, is showing a series of shots of a disguised XLR w/ an obvious mesh grill and bulging hood - marking this as the V-Series. 09 XLR-VUnknown at this time (other than the final look of the refresh) is if this will continue to use the supercharged Northstar - which is rumored to go away early in the next decade or if a version of the corporate small-block V-8 will replace it. Given the plethora of options from the Corvette above the 6.2l LS3 (the Z06's 505hp, 7.0l V-8 and the supercharged smallblock that becomes the LSA in the new CTS-V) we'd guess for a version of the LSA in the new XLR-V. Expect a coming-out of the new XLR and XLR-V later this year, perhaps as early as the normal 2009 model change-over in July/August.
