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
If youve been looking for a Jeep that enhances your off-road lifestyle, then youre going to want to dig into the details on this 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Because while every Jeep is tough, this one has been given all the right upgrades (including a Cummins turbodiesel) to be able to pull its brothers out of all sorts of trouble. So its not hard to imagine this as the king of all Jeeps. Its obvious from every angle that this is a custom build made to traverse territories that have never seen a vehicle before. Up front theres a strong ARB front bumper with brush guard. Along the sides are rugged tubular side steps. Plus, we know youve spotted those beadlock wheels with puncture-resistant Cooper Discovery S/T tires. And the strong swing-away mount in the rear with the full-size spare also has room for two fuel cans. Even the hood pins are upgraded. But even without all this toughness, this Jeep has a ton of appeal. The factory Khaki paint reminds us of the Jeeps military lineage. Plus, you have proper side doors, and the full soft top is in a nice coordinating color with the paint. It all just shows that this is a well-done total package. Inside, this has a nice look of a proper nature crawler with upgraded camouflage seat covers. But the heart of the appeal on this one is that you also have one of the most modern Jeep interiors around. That means a lockable armrest center console, dual airbags, a grippy steering wheel with cruise control buttons, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB input for your phone. We especially love the pair of bucket seats that are designed to both be comfortable for the long haul as well as resilient enough for outdoor use. Plus, the cold-blowing modern air conditioning is the kind of feature that makes this Wrangler great for use every day. And dont forget that the larger Unlimited model means the cool two-door look but a larger vehicle with better storage. And while there are plenty of stock pieces to love, the extra gauges on the A-pillar remind you theres nothing factory about whats under the hood. This is the Jeep you always wished the factory had the guts to build, because nestled in the engine bay is a 3.9-liter Cummins diesel with customized Holset turbocharger. It has the torque to get you out of just about any trouble this 4x4 can get into. Longer ACOS adjustable coil springs up front, a Rockcrusher Dana 60 rear, and Bilstein shocks all around continue this go-anywhere package. But just like the interior, the full powertrain package delivers more than just off-road supremacy. Four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and the control of a five-speed manual transmission are great for all occasions. Complete with owners manual, this is the tough-looking Wrangler Unlimited that has the unique upgrades to be the first one up every hill. So if you want to be the king, call today!
