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
Looking for a bona fide head turner that looks like nothing else on the road? Get behind the wheel of this 2002 Chrysler Prowler. It features one of the most distinctive designs ever to roll off an assembly line - an inspired mix of vintage and futuristic sensibilities. Having logged only about 6500 miles, its just now past the break in stage and has its best miles still ahead of it. Despite being in production for five model years, only a relatively scant 11,700 Prowlers were actually made, so the collectability factor of this model is plenty strong. Its one of a kind design borrows heavily from the vintage hot rods of the past, including that of Chrysler International Design Director Thomas Gales own 32 roadster. Sporting an Indy-inspired, open wheel front end that elevates as it transitions to raised rear fenders that give the appearance that its coiled and ready to strike, this Prowler wears a high-impact yellow exterior thats still in top form - even the low-slung front nose is unusually blemish free - and nicely accented by a pair of black splash guards just behind the doors. The contrasting front bumpers have been removed to amplify this Chryslers already standout appearance and are included with the car. The featured black canvas convertible top is also in great condition and stands ready to protect you from darkening skies. Climb inside and youll find yourself in the middle of a driver-centric, nicely configured interior, at the center of which is a pair of contoured leather bucket seats that are easily moved to just the right position for comfortable driving with just a flick of a lever. Just as youd likely expect from such a lightly driven car - even one that offers such a temptation for spirited driving as this one does - the entire cockpit is in terrific shape. Fresh carpet, punctuated by badged floor mats, lines the floor and the door panels to each side show no discoloration or sun damage at all - definitely a welcome sight in a UV- sensitive, convertible interior dressed in black. While the Prowlers unique appearance might lead you to think that its configured more for novelty than frequent use, such is not the case. Its a well-equipped ride, providing keyless entry, cruise control, power windows and door locks, air conditioning thats blowing cold and strong and an AM/FM/Cassette stereo working side by side with a multi-disc CD changer and powerful 320 watt amplifier to provide a strong audio experience. <BR. The 3.5 liter V6 occupying center stage in a clean engine compartment is not only very likely the original powerplant, but also impressively efficient, generating well over one horsepower for each of its cubic inches and capable of propelling this Prowler to sub-6 second 0-60 times. The engine runs flawlessly and sounds great as it teams with a 4-speed automatic transmission with an electronically controlled overdrive gear to make for a high functioning and user-friendly drivetrain. Smooth power steering pairs with the Prowlers road-hugging stance and stabilizer bars to make for excellent handling, while power disc brakes at all four corners bring rapid stops. Equipped with plenty of distinction to draw attention, yet also thoroughly well equipped to provide a comfortable driving experience, this one of a kind ride cruises on a set of staggered chrome wheels - 17 in front and 20 in back to accentuate its aggressively inclined stance - wrapped with Goodyear tires. Seamlessly mixing elements of vintage roadsters with more modern rides, this 2002 Chrysler Prowler offers a compelling driving experience and will readily stand out in any crowd. Call today!
