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
A car like this 1999 Mitsubishi 3000GT is a true rising star in the up-and-coming world of Japanese classics. Fuel-injected V6 power, a loaded A/C interior, and the control of a five-speed are all part of the desirability. So to find a one-owner example that carries exclusive design touches of the final model year makes this one exceptionally attractive. This is the last year Mitsubishi gave us the 3000GT. It has a particularly striking look where there were exclusive upgrades, like a more pronounced front end and a new shapely design for the clear headlight kit. Its almost like as if someone designed a Ferrari in Japan. So we know this will be the kind of style that will keep the 1999 coupe in demand. Even the 16-inch alloys wheels have a distinct look. Thats whys great to have such a survivor-level example. So all the sporty details look correct - from the NACA-style ducts along the side to the big rear spoiler. The Glacier White Pearl is the original factory application. The finish does reflect having been enjoyed over the years. But when you have a one-owner car that has only averaged about 3k miles annually, it retains a good gloss on a body treated with care. The black interior looks great against the white exterior. And this is complete, right down to the interesting texture on the cloth seats. And speaking of the seats, the front buckets have the kind of well-engineered bolstering that make this a great sports car. Plus, you have all the best features, like power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt steering column, dual airbags, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. You may want to invest in a few little things, like a new shift boot, but for lovers of originality, this one has that exceptionally clean look that is just so rare to find. After all, the hard sun from days on a used car lot could crack a dash, or the factory AM/FM/cassette player would get lost under the third owner. But those kinds of things dont happen to a one-owner car like this. It has the kind of completeness that really lets you enjoy the original driving experience. Under the hood is an extra clean presentation of the original powerhouse. The 3000 part of this cars name comes from the fuel-injected 3.0-liter V6. This was at the bedrock of Mitsubishis high-end cars for decades, and that means its both a lively and hardy motor. And since this was maintained correctly, it fires up with the kind of eagerness that gives Japanese cars their steadfast reputation. This feels energetic around town and on the highway, especially because a quick downshift of the five-speed brings an instant burst of power. The fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes are all part of what make this a great modern driving classic. Complete with owners manual, you know its rare to find a one-owner survivor from this era. Dont miss your chance, call today!
