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

1998 Jaguar XJ8 L - British Saloon - 4.0L V8 - British Racing Green (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1998 Jaguar XJ8 L on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, its possible that youve only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 110 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to the Jaguars accident-and-damage-free Carfax history report, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) If cars were objects of art... Jaguar would probably be the worlds most admired manufacturer. New York Times, February 1998 The New York Times review continued: Jaguars are more about graceful shapes, supple ride comfort and classic drawing room-type cabins. The new XJ8 has all those virtues, but its new V8 is also terrific. Its smooth and light and compact. The only downside is fuel consumption, which can be worryingly immoderate if pushed. The German-built ZF automatic transmission is smooth enough, if not quite as quick-shifting and seamless as the better BMW or Mercedes engine-transmission combinations... The ride quality is outstanding, and the handling is surprisingly assured too, considering the cars bulk. Offered here is a 1998 Jaguar XJ.8 L (long-wheelbase) in British Racing Green over tan leather. Showing 119,467 miles on its odometer, the big Jaguar has traveled just under 5,200 miles per-year on average since new. Carfax records show consistent, routine, professional service over the XJ8s life. As the cars exemplary condition clearly shows, this is a properly cared-for, lovingly maintained, two-owner, European uber-luxury automobile, as beautiful today as it was the day it was first delivered. The Jaguars VIN decoding shows its full equipment list: Powertrain- 4.0L (244) DOHC SPFI 32-valve aluminum alloy V8 engine Electronic 5-speed automatic transmission w/OD, normal & sport shift modes 3.06 axle ratio Electronic ignition system Rear wheel drive Unibody construction 118 (long) wheelbase Fully independent front suspension w/unequal-length wishbones, coil springs, telescopic shock absorbers, anti-roll bar, anti-dive geometry Fully independent rear suspension w/double wishbones, driveshafts acting as upper links, concentric coil springs/shocks, anti-lift/anti-squat geometry P225/60ZR16 SBR tires 16 x 7.0 alloy wheels Speed-sensitive variable ratio power rack & pinion steering Vacuum-assisted power 4-wheel vented disc brakes w/fluid loss warning sensor 21.4 gallon fuel tank -Safety- Driver & front passenger front air bags Driver & front passenger side air bags Height-adjustable upper anchorage for front seat belts 3-point rear center seat belt Child seat safety belt locking feature -Interior- Connolly leather-trimmed interior Walnut trim Multi-adjustable power front bucket seats w/lumbar support Carpeted footwell rugs Trip computer Outside temp indicator Power windows 3-position memory w/personalized remote activation-inc: door mirrors, driver seat, steering column w/auto tilt-away feature Automatic climate control air conditioning Heated rear window Premium audio system Cellular phone pre-wire Sunglass storage compartment -Exterior- Forward hinged hood One-touch power tilt/slide sunroof Wraparound bumpers Front/rear fog lamps Power adjustable heated door mirrors 6-position intermittent windshield wipers Chrome leaper hood ornament The exterior deep-green paint retains its showroom finish, properly glossy and free of damage; however, there is rust bubbling under the rear tail lights. It was the perfect choice on the long-cabin design considered by many to be among the most beautiful Jaguar sedans ever assembled. All the tastefully restrained chrome trim, cabin glass, lighting lenses, and factory badging remain in place and in excellent condition. Factory 16x7-inch alloy wheels are mounted with Kelly Edge al
