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

4.0L Eaton/Roots Supercharged V8 - Leather Interior - Beautiful Platinum metallic paint - Navigation - 85k Miles - (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this Jaguar XKR on a website other than our main website, its possible that only some of our many photographs of the car are shown due to website limitations. To be sure you see all the more than 125 high-definition photographs, please go to our main website: GarageKeptMotors.) 2000 Jaguar XKR Convertible Supercharged eroticism John Pearly Huffman, Car & Driver review, January 2000 To say the least, Car and Drivers Mr. Huffman was quite taken with the then-new Jaguar XKR. He continued waxing eloquent, almost euphorically: ... just look at Jaguars XKR. Its sex on wheels! A lot sexier than the naturally aspirated XK8 upon which its based, and not sexy in a vulgar, lecherous, strip-club-near-the-airport sort of way, either. But Elizabeth Hurley-wearing- Versace-at-the-Oscars sexy: provocative, confident, not at all trashy, with an upper-class British accent. Whew! (Sounds like he might need a shower.) But when it came to the Jaguars powerplant, he was no less enthusiastic: Despite the spectacular looks, its the engines magnificence that defines the XKRs character. As in every other factory-supercharged automotive powerplant sold here, the device doing the work is a belt-driven Eaton Roots-style blower. In the 370-hp, 4.0-liter DOHC AJ V-8s case, its the same 112-cubic-inch Eaton that Ford uses on its other supercharged V-8, the 360-hp, 5.4-liter SOHC V-8 found in the SVT F-150 Lightning pickup. On the Lightnings long-stroke, two-valve engine (which redlines at a mere 5250 rpm), the M112 supercharger spins at 2.1-times engine speed and peaks at eight pounds of boost. Atop the relatively short-stroke four-valve AJ V-8 (which spins to 6200 rpm before a fuel cutout turns off the fun), the blower turns at 1.9-times engine speed and huffs out 11.6 pounds. The relatively low supercharger drive ratio, says Jaguar, enhances the refinement and reliability of the supercharger installation. That, and the fact that the blower nestles under its intercoolers, also means it runs more quietly compared with the same units operation in the Lightning. What about the hard-to-define thing called character, especially given the cars combination of British, American, German and Italian componentry? Again, Mr. Huffman: ... from the bottom of its Italian tires through the whirring of its American supercharger, and the silken shifts of its German (Mercedes-Benz) transmission, the Ford-financed XKR indicates just how character today is more an act of corporate will than where a car happens to be assembled. The greatest achievement of this fast, beautifully built, transnational sex machine is how completely its a Jaguar. The Jaguar XKR Convertible offered here is a fine example. Classic platinum metallic paint, black fabric convertible top, and sumptuous ivory leather upholstery (front and rear), nicely complemented by a burled-walnut dash encasing analog gauges, climate-control vents, period navigation system, and entertainment controls, make for an appealing combination overall. The center console and shiftable automatic transmission selector show little, if any, noticeable wear. The same is true for the carpeting and convertible-top boot. With fewer than 5,000 miles per-year on the odometer (a third of whats considered normal), this XKR has definitely seen limited use. Further evidence of this can be found in the photographs on the GarageKeptMotors website, especially the shots of the undercarriage, engine bay, and lower fascia (front, rear and both sides). Its ownership history in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan, together with the pristine condition of the body and undercarriage suggests this Jaguar stayed inside in nasty weather, and never saw much, if any, snow.
