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 2008 Shelby Cobra Factory Five is something extra special. You have all the right Cobra features, like a real drivers roadster that has a Roush fuel-injected V8, four-wheel disc brakes, and a fully independent sports suspension. But this one is also the prototype of a version that wanted to give you a premium luxury experience. So there is a level of comfort and features in the leather-lined interior that youre likely never going to find again. This Cobra is a stunning all-American. We can its ready for patriotic duty because you not only have Cobalt Blue paint with bright white racing stripes on top, but also theres a fine red pinstripe separating them. It all has quite an impressive look on a build that has only about 1,500 miles on it. And the metallic in the paint lets the sunlight radiate with pride over the curves that make the Cobra body so iconic. This has all the best classic details bright polished, like the push bumpers, racing-style roll hood, and Halibrand style wheels. But theres an additional level of appeal here, too. Were told this was the prototype for a company to use Factory Fives construction and add the kind of thoughtful and premium touches its almost impossible to find elsewhere. For example, you still have a set of side pipes, but its part of a full exhaust package that should pass any regional/state emission testing. So basically think of this as the shining Cora that was built for someone who really does love a weekend road trip. Theres a lot of vintage sports car elegance here. The wood-rimmed steering wheel is classic Cobra, and the weave of the fully carpeted interior will remind you of a Porsche 356 Speedster. Even the trunk is fully outfitted in this timelessly attractive style. And they also took the time to integrate some modern features for a true luxury experience. So the leather-wrapped dash has an AM/FM/CD/XM touchscreen stereo, theres a subwoofer under your seat, and this has provisions for automatic A/C climate control (the R134a just likely needs a recharge.) Everything here feels like it was done with added care. So you have high-back racing bucket seats with Schroth harnesses, but this serious hardware is wrapped in supple two-tone leather. Theres a full gauge package that is thoughtfully done in vintage-style VDO readouts. And you know this is a true mix of premium and performance when it even has an integrated radar detector! Under the hood is a Ford legend, but a much more recent one than you find in most Cobras. Its the fuel-injected 4.6-liter modular V8, and this is a Roush 3V crate motor, so it was born to be mean. It even is supported by a WMS Racing intake, steel braided lines, a custom motor shroud, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. Keeping you connected to the road is a race-inspired suspension with a fully independent A-arm coilover set up and Factory Five four-wheel power disc brakes. And remember, this car wants to be far more everyday friendly than the other Cobras, and so you have upgraded features like power steering and traction control (with an off switch.) Plus, Fords 5R55S five-speed transmission balances out this package perfectly with good ratios for performance driving, or you can just lie this automatically shift comfortably into overdrive. The sale comes complete with a binder full of docs on this unique creation. This Cobra brings together the best names in the business on a sleek street machine that also has enough civility to go beyond the racetrack. You know something this unique rarely comes up for sale. So dont miss your chance, call today!
