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
Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is excited to offer this sharp 2003 Mercedes Benz SL500. This silver bullet only has about 60k miles on its 302 hp 5.0 liter v8 engine and has tons of life left in it. The fifth generation SL was in production between 2001 and 2008. The all-new SL featured a retractable hardtop (marketed as the Vario Roof). This SL500 is styled with silver paint and wheels to match. The gray leather interior is still in great condition and shows minimal signs of wear. This Mercedes is turn key and ready to be enjoyed. When this car was brand new it started at almost $90,000 for a base model, take advantage of the Mercedes style at a value price. Its roof is a masterpiece of engineering. It takes just 16 seconds to raise up, separate into four pieces, and fold into the trunk. The cleverest part is how the glass rear window flips over to nestle under the roof panel so the retracted roof takes up much less space and leaves enough room for a couple of medium-size suitcases-or golf bags-underneath. And to make stowing easier, the whole folded roof assembly lifts up at the touch of a button inside the trunk. With the roof in place, the SL is a cozy coupe. Drop the top, and there is the choice of a breezy ride with the windows down or fairly serene progress with them up and the mesh wind blocker in place. There are only two seats, though; unlike some of its predecessors, the new SL does not have kiddy space in the rear. This 2003 SL500 comes with many extras like its cold A/C system, Cd player, convertible top, cruise control, heated seats, power brakes and steering, anti-lock brakes, power windows, traction control, leather interior, airbags, and even power mirrors. Do not let this sharp SL500 pass you by. To see 100+ HD pictures and videos of this 2003 Mercedes Benz SL500, please visit GatewayClassicCars.com.
