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

1996 Jaguar XJS Convertible The Jaguar car is world famous for its stylish designs, thrilling performance, luxurious and comfortable interiors, outstanding handling and ride, quality engineering, and state-of-the-art technology. No other automobile manufacturer has been as remarkably successful at creating both the worlds finest luxury sedans, as well as some of the worlds most beloved sports cars. The founder of Jaguar Cars Ltd. was Sir William Lyons. His goal was to create world class sports sedans with grace, space, and pace. Lyons once said, The car is the closest thing we will ever create to something that is alive. For consignment something to put some excitement into your derriere, a Jaguar XJS. This 4-passenger sports car with its inline 6 cylinder power plant can be a slight bit of a handful when it comes to pushing you down the superhighway, all in luxurious comfort. A tasteful mixture of beige tones, Signal Red exterior, and English burl, along with some innovative use of technology, and we are going for a ride in Jaguar British style. Its final year and taking a bow, a 2-owner car for its lifetime, and mere 34,479 miles put on the ticker, all original paint, clean Carfax, mint condition interior, and lots of power conveniences. Meeeeoooooowww! Exterior This low slung British skate is bathed in Signal Red, and there is little of a fault on this cool cat. Gaps are excellent throughout all steel rust free panels. Chrome trimmings for headlight bezels, wheel well surrounds, windshield trim and taillight surrounds are also all excellent. A tan canvas convertible power up and down top has a glass rear window, and no marks or tears to be seen. A 2 plus 2-seater car with plenty of room upfront for the engine under a raging bonnet, passengers in the middle, and boot space abounds too! Throw in dual chrome tipped exhausts and 16-inch Jaguar alloy wheels, and we have the makings of luxury sport. When the top is down, a near perfect beige boot seamlessly covers the downed top and compliments the red exterior. Quite Right, Youre bloody well right. Interior Simply put, mint although not in color, were talking condition. Beige leather abounds with true actual walnut burl to create a luxurious environment fit for a discriminating driver. Nice comfy, puffy padded seats with a seamless headrest popping out the top show no marks from use. A beauty of a central console with some of that walnut burl inset around the shifter which also shows cruise control, window toggles, a roof toggle, and dual ash receptacles. As the center console rises to the dash, a factory radio is mounted neatly within along with climate controls, running lights, defogger and exterior lighting. The shiny inset walnut for the gauge cluster is just pristine and shows very clean black faced gauges with white numbers and letters and white pointers. A wood and molded vinyl steering wheel is fronting the dash. Door panels show in beige vinyl with more walnut burl trimmings, power seat adjustments, storage pulls and a chromed bezels speaker within a field of taupe color carpet. The floors are covered with dark taupe colored Wilton carpeting and sport lighter protective floor mats to keep staining and dirt to a minimum. Drivetrain A pop of the long bonnet and it reveals a very clean and well-kept engine bay with an overall very light patina. Within its confines is a shiny, no corrosion 4.0 Liter inline 6-cylinder engine. It is fed by electronic fuel injection and has a 4-speed automatic (ZF4HP24E) original overdrive transmission with a rear axle of 3.54 gearing. All capitol condition under here. Me droogs and mates! Undercarriage Slight patina, but no road dirt, or surface rust seen on all the essentials. Independent suspension for front and rear, and power disc brakes on all 4 corners. A stock exhaust is on and shows some slight surface rust. Drive-Ability With my hankering for anything British, I hopped behind the wheel, fired this car up and drove off to the test track. Great acceleration, wonderful handling, straight braking when pressed hard, and a smooth cruiser. A/C blew ice cold, courtesy a new condenser, dryer and compressor and all power accessories were functional. The last year of production of the XJS and they really have gotten it all correct. Design, which is sporty, yet luxurious, nice efficient power, and a truly high end interior with the leather and burl. And the top going up and down does not hurt either. Lets go for an afternoon tool through the countryside and stop off for some homemade toad in the hole. Yeah Baby!!
