2004 Mercedes-Benz SL500
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.

This is a very unique, low mileage Mercedes-Benz SL500. Fully loaded with all the creature comforts, sport mode, retractable hardtop, and a gorges red leather interior. The suspension feels extremely tight and the 5.0L V8 has plenty of power, making this an absolute blast to drive. Sport mode allows you to utilize the tiptronic shift option allowing the driver to control when to shift. The exterior american flag is done very nicely, and is an eye catch when moving down the road. It has bright, vibrant colors and is very patriotic. Overall, this is a reliable, comfortable, unique Mercedes that could be used as an advertising car, daily driver or a perfect 4th of July parade car.
The fifth generation SL was in production between 2001 and 2008. The all-new SL (initially just a 5.0-litre SL 500 version) featured a retractable hardtop (marketed as the Vario Roof) available on the SLK since 1997. This featured a 5.0-litre 302 hp (225 kW) V8, with a 5.4-litre AMG Supercharged V8 appearing in 2002s SL 55 AMG. V12 engines were available in the SL 600 and the limited-production SL 65 AMG.
