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 Chevrolet SSR is a low mileage modern classic that really gives you everything. After all, it has retro-cool looks, a huge trunk, fuel-injected V8 power, a loaded A/C interior, and one of the coolest folding hardtops youll ever see. Chevrolet produced one of the most daring styles for the era with the SSR. It takes the now-iconic Advance Design pickup as inspiration for something far sleeker. So while you see the heritage, right down to the Chevrolet lettering across the front, this also has the a modern and swoopy design made to cheat the wind. This one is a factory black vehicle, and so you know thats always going to make it desirable. Especially because it has a great gloss and depth that tells you this it has been treated with respect. The details on this one are nice, too. The optional running boards coordinate with the retro-cool grille and the alloy wheels. And speaking of those wheels, they have a Corvette-like 19/20 inch front/rear stance. Plus, theres a full custom red pinstriping package that looks great with a vividly artful style without being overbearing. After all, the red looks cool against the black, and it coordinates with the rear where you have those smooth taillights and the SSR badging. The rounded style of the roof makes it look like an expensive stamping that you can only get on high-end vehicles. So its even more impressive that with the touch of a button, it disappears leaving behind virtually no trace. And because this looks so good with the top down, youll be especially happy to see that the factory black interior remains quite clean and complete. This is a car built on individual comfort. Thats why the dual leather bucket seats individually adjust to the ideal position. And they are each heated so that even a crisp fall day wont ruin a top-down experience. This is loaded with more great features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, a tilt steering column, dual front airbags, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The stereo has even been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD/XM unit with a USB input and Bluetooth to let you plug in the most modern music players. The rear hard tonneau lifts to reveal a large carpeted cargo area outfitted with bright wood slats and the optional side storage containers. The key to the SSRs performance is a 5.3-liter V8. This motor is related the GMs truck line, but it also has some lightweight performance characteristics. So it seems like the perfect blend for this pickup/roadster. The whole engine bay retains a stock and clean look in this low mileage machine. And the advantage of a well-respected modern classic is that you get a fuel-injected powerhouse that loves to fire up like today is day one. Plus, features like the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, cruise control, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS make driving easy near or far. Complete with owners manual, this is the sleek and distinct SSR that offers both a great driver today and the kind of style that you know will continue to be appreciated in the future. Call now!
