Last time we brought you photos of the 2009 Cadillac XLR it was hidden behind a forrest of trees. This time we've got a great shot of the new XLR roadster in the buff. The new XLR is basically a re-skinned Corvette that's set to be unveiled to the public later this year, which may explain why it's running around without any tape on. The Art & Science look is still in full effect though not quite as angry looking as the previous generation. You'll notice the new grille and restyled fog lamps immediately, which help move the design forward. Spy report below the jump.

Damned short-term fashion trends!
