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
This 2004 Cadillac XLR is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. Cadillac has always been known for leading the way in the American made luxury car market and has done so since its beginning in 1902. Going through somewhat of a slump in the late 90s a brand overhaul was ordered by parent company GM. Feeling that Cadillac had become a car that could only be found in retirement communitys they gave every and all Cadillacs a serious face lift. The XLR was more than a facelift it was a whole new line of car. The idea and even the execution of a 2-door convertible were not new to Cadillac. They had built them in the past, but a convertible hardtop, that was actually built by Mercedes to be used on top of a C6 Chassis, that was unheard of. The new body would be more aggressive and cutting edge than anything Cadillac had done before. This XLR is a great example of those early runs and with only 15000 being built over an 8-year span there is no reason why these should not begin to start gaining value. This blue example is one of the most sought after with only 792 being made during its 3-year run. The 4.6 NorthStar runs extremely well with no dummy lights on the dash it is a good sign that this beauty is in excellent mechanical condition. With all of the electronics, which in this car is everything you can think of, are in good working order. The transmission shifts flawlessly whether its just getting up to highway speed or mashing down for some stoplight fun it never misses a lick. If you have been thinking about trying to guess the market and get in on the ground floor of an up and coming classic this XLR is the ideal candidate.
