A Roundup of the Best New Cars Revealed at Pebble Beach

After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.


Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.


Classic Car Overview

Heres an opportunity for luxury and precision that goes well beyond the value price. This 1996 BMW Z3 offers a sporting chassis, five-speed stick-shift, and plenty of modern luxury features that youd expect from a premium sports car built for two. This is the first full model year that launched the now legendary Z-line of roadsters. BMW created instant desire with the long hood, short deck, and extra-wide fender flares that instantly convey a car meant for driving. You can tell they spent time on the details of this design with how well some of the pieces were integrated right at the factory. Features like the ground effects, side louvers, and third brake light are part of a premium look that was instilled from day one. German luxury is best shown on a timeless color like silver with a coordinating black folding top. This example has been driven and enjoyed, but youll also see a certain level of better care than the average car. Thats because this is a two-owner example that were father and son. A Z3 is meant to be open to the world, and so the black leather interior gives this one an attractive color combo with the roof up or down. This is a drivers machine, and so the bucket seats strike that perfect balance between sports car contouring and grand touring comfort. You get a ton of great features packed into this BMW. It includes power windows, powers locks, cruise control, power steering, dual front airbags, and a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo. BMW engineered the roof to stow away quickly and cleanly. Since they are encouraging top-down motoring on a whim, youll be happy to have both cold-blowing air conditioning and heated seats. That means you can stay open to enjoy the noon sunshine or even a crisp fall evening. Under the hood is the correct 1.9-liter engine. This fuel-injected DOHC motor takes advantage of the great European tradition of lower displacement motors that love to rev for the spirited performance feeling. This is especially true on this five-speed manual transmission example - a rare feature that really allows to take full control into your hands. The fully-independent suspension seems to have mastered the right blend of performance and comfort, like a good BMW should. Powerful four-wheel disc brakes complete this confidence-inspiring package. The sale comes complete with the owners manual and maintenance records. Heres a premium roadster with a great family history and an affordable price. This is a terrific recipe for open road enjoyment, so dont miss out. Call now!
