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
2009 SL63 AMG with AMG Performance Package If youre reading this, you already know how special the SL63 AMG is. Youve probably seen it when it was featured on <a href=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRm82yJx4zc>Jay Lenos Garage. I dont need to tell you how immense the power band is, or how your adrenaline spikes as you squeeze the throttle and unleash all five-hundred and eighteen horsepower from the 6.3L V8. The Edmunds.com Editor only put one thing in the Cons list: This car is too fast for its own good! Clearly he wasnt a true AMG guy. Im sure youre well aware of the exceptional attention to detail that Mercedes AMG team puts into this classy yet understated supercar. Weve added a video, but if you havent heard an AMG V8s exhaust note in person, you would be shocked at how much it sounds like a muscle car. To my fellow AMG connoisseurs, youre in good company. This car was hand picked by the owner for him to drive personally, which is why no expense was spared tracking down the rare AMG Performance package, and every other package and option that was available. As with nearly all of his personal cars however, everything is for sale. This car is a $150,000 car brand new. It only has 57k miles on the odometer, a clean title, and a sale price of less than a third of that window sticker. As Jay Leno mentions in the video linked above, these cars settle after the first few years of depreciation, and hold their value surprisingly well! You wont find a better value of performance, luxury, style, excitement, and price.
