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

This 2005 Jaguar XJ8 L offers the best of everything. It has smooth V8 power, aristocratic long wheel base, exceptional modern luxury (especially for the rear seat,) and its all wrapped in a sleek European style. And while this offers you an executive-level experience, you can get it today for a mail room kind of price. A Jaguar is timeless luxury, and this is the ideal generation to own. They would change the shape dramatically in a few years, so this sedan is that perfect intersection where the iconic XJ lines meets the latest technology. While that point is highlighted particularly in the interior (more on that in a moment,) it also is part of the exterior, too. The iconic low-slung swoopy lines of this sedan were switched to lightweight aluminum for better performance. And they were precision crafted for the ultimate in detail. Thats why the crease that appears around the headlight has an almost unbroken line until it fades back into the panel by the taillight - a true class act! It all still looks great today because this modern classic has been treated with care. Even the paint retains a dignified look with its correct glossy shade of timeless Quartz metallic gray. So the price seems like a pittance to obtain the flagship of an upper-class European brand. Inside is a great mix of old world luxury and modern technology. The Dove Gray leather interior is a craftsmans piece, and you can tell by how nice the upholstery remains today. The steering wheel leather does show some signs of use, but it also has Jaguars glossy wood to make sure it continues to look and feel up to Jaguars standards. The walnut wood here has a matching pattern with the doors, dash, and center console to really warm up the atmosphere. This is the long wheelbase L model, and so there is even more room for rear seat occupants to stretch out. The luxury continues with a long list of desirable features such as dual zone automatic climate control, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, power seats, heated seats, a premium AM/FM/CD stereo, power tilt/telescopic steering column, and a power sunroof. Modern features not only mean superior luxury, but also the modern safety of dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. The 8 in XJ8 means youre in the generation of proper V8 power. The engine bay shows off a very tidy and correct numbers-matching 4.2-liter fuel-injected unit. This motor is famous for combining the engineering talents of Ford with Jaguars flair for driving passion. It purrs with buttery smoothness but can growl with the biggest cats when you plant your right foot. This luxury sedan was built to make your heart race like a sports car, and so the motor is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission (utilizing the iconic J-gate shifter.) The European engineered fully independent suspension, power steering, limited slip rear end, and four-wheel disc brakes means this executive sedan begs for the back roads. Complete with owners manual, this is a great luxury icon that is more affordable than you ever thought before. Call now!
