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

2004 Mercedes Benz SL500 Roadster Hemi? Yes, its got a hemi and more. Hemi is a trademark used by Chrysler and Dodge for their 1960s engine which first used hemispherical combustion chambers to get more power. The Mercedes SL500 engine also uses hemispherical combustion chambers, although they dont use the Hemi trademark. The old Chrysler Hemi only had two valves per cylinder, pushrods, carburetors and only one cam. The 2004 engine has a single overhead cam but utilizes 24 valves. For consignment, a rocket ship for the highway and offering up the lap of luxury while doing so. We give you the 2004 SL500 which was a California Car then in 2017 when the current consignor purchased the car he had it shipped back east. The original owner added an AMG sport package, aero design lower body add ons, wood accenting, comfort seat package and xenon headlights. Oh, well have fun fun fun on the Autobahn! Exterior Brilliant Silver, (is there any other color for this piece of German Engineering?), bathes rust free panels which look like they have been sculpted by the wind. A gently sloping front grille with the big trim pointed star in the center leads the way and dual body integrated headlights group together on either side overlapping just a smidge. Some side vents for the front quarters and just above an extreme raked windshield lead the way for the rounded roofline. The hardtop magically folds into the trunk revealing a convertible! Black trimmings surround all the glass and as our eye moves to the trunk deck the shaped trunk lid is framed on either side by the wraparound taillights. Dual exhaust is peeking out of the bottom. Special turbine style wheels are seen on all 4 corners, and the rockers also have the AMG trimmings. The paint has a micro seal on top for extra protection. Interior Very soft supple gray leather covers the seats, and these have heating and cooling capabilities for the power buckets. Leather also mixes with molded light and dark gray for the door panels, which also have a hint of burl wood accenting. The dash undulates in front of the buckets and light and dark gray form the dash top and instrument cluster. In the center a navi, backup, Bluetooth, radio control screen is mounted in a more beautiful burl and can also be controlled by voice activation. Round vents in oval panels are seen throughout. Also in the center panel is a multi-button controller for various functions and the top actuator. Many creature comforts all over this interior. Drivetrain 5.0 liters of V8 power and EFI pair up with a 7-speed transmission and a 2.82 final drive. All squeezed in under the hood and adorned in plastic coverings. Undercarriage Rust free as 181K of its 191k life was fun California and on the highway. Independent suspension on front and back with the back adding a multilink setup. Power disc braking is on, and a stock exhaust aids in the exhale. This car also has active handling, park assist and virtually every receipt of its maintenance life since new. Drive-Ability The technology of this engine produces so much power it needs to be experienced to be believed. A great runner, fast starter, (for the engine and off the line), solid braking and lots of bells and whistles to play with. The perfect luxury sports car with the fold down hardtop which is worth the price of admission just to watch it operate. Nimble and comfortable, beautiful two tone gray and leather and wood accented trimmings, and silver the house color of Mercedes Benz racing. Grab it before it goes Schnell!
