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

To mark the end of the wildly successful R129 production run, Mercedes wanted to celebrate. They did so by offering a limited edition SL500, dubbed the Silver Arrow. Only 1,450 of these final year V8 Mercs were produced, and they were only sold in the US market. Adding further style to an already timeless design made these rare SLs incredibly sought-after, making this low mileage, low ownership beauty that much more impressive today. The SL has always been sleek, purposeful, and dignified, with a healthy dose of performance under the surface. The Silver Arrow took that a step further with an aluminum front grille, aluminum trim pieces, and special edition 18-inch 6-spoke wheels. The special Silver Arrow paint seems to capture elegance-in-motion perfectly and has been maintained impeccably with nary a scratch or blemish to be found. In typical Mercedes-Benz standards, the fit and finish is beyond reproach. The doors close with precision usually reserved for cars with solid roofs, the gaps are so tight you cant even fit a fingertip in them, and with the color-matched bumper and rocker panel moldings, it has a very sporty demeanor. The imposing grille with three-pointed star is almost as good as a plow for getting slower traffic out of your way. This SL has earned its reputation as a luxury cruiser through a long list of desirable features. Comfortable two-tone Nappa leather heated buckets and door panels were only available in the Silver Arrow, with dual memory settings, adjustable in every possible direction. The two-tone leather wheel tilts and telescopes, all that smoky dark wood is real, and the factory-turned aluminum instrument cluster and shift-gate panel provide a beautiful contrast that ties the whole interior together. Elegant is the proper word to describe the look of the cockpit. But theres another side to Mercedes amenities that are always a nice bonus. This premium marque is known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this can be seen on everything from the dual airbags, to the anti-lock disc brakes, to the roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected (it also can be electronically raised on this SL to mount the included rear wind deflector). There are other amenities such as power windows, power steering, power locks, cruise control, automatic climate control, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer powerful enough to be heard at triple-digit speeds with the top down. And speaking of top, you not only get a nice black folding roof, but this one also comes with the color matching hard top that makes your roadster look like a sleek coupe. The 500 in SL500 refers to the 5.0 liter DOHC V8 that lives under the hood. Making a robust 302 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque, it gives you the freedom to choose to keep up with traffic, or easily leave all of them behind. Theres a V8 bellow from the exhaust that sounds like LeMans at night, and it turns out that the engine is virtually bulletproof in the real world. This one has led a pampered life considering it has averaged less than 850 miles per year so far. The five-speed automatic transmission snaps to attention with the poke of the throttle, and the multi-link suspension provides impressive handling. In total, this is the ultimate roadster for the driver who wants a tight handling car for the winding roads but doesnt want to give up supple comfort or space for the golf clubs. Its time to reach for a piece of the good life. This limited edition Silver Arrow is about bringing a promise within reach. A modern classic, with all the amenities, in a convertible...better call now!!
