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
The 370Z is a very capable sports car in its own right, but this 2013 Nissan 370Z Nismo takes its natural abilities to an entirely new and higher level. Its array of mechanical and aesthetic enhancements came at the hands of Nissans own motorsports and performance division, Nismo - think of them as the Japanese equivalent of Rousch or Saleen - so you know theyve been done right. The result is an agile handling, killer-looking ride with plenty of power. Relatively light usage and consistent shelter leave this nicely upgraded 370Z in very good form. Its also had the good fortune to have steered clear of any notable collisions during its lifetime, a fact thats backed up by its clean AutoCheck report. Dressed in its ultra clean Gunmetal Gray paint, itll stand out in any crowd. Those modifications made to increase downdraft and improve handling - the integrated front air dam, pronounced side sills and the aggressive-looking spoiler in back, to name a few - show a lot of craftsmanship, as if they were intended to be a part of the design all along. The paint itself looks great - there are no serious blemishes to be found, the coloring seems very consistent and the clearcoat provides a strong shine. The Xenon headlights in front and the polished exhaust tips peeking out just the right amount in back set it apart even further from its more commonly encountered brethren. Climb in and youll be surrounded with plenty of evidence that the Nismo is endowed with more than just external modifications. The cloth bucket seats feature prominent badging and are in great condition, showing no discoloration or signs of creasing. Its actually hard to find any real signs of usage anywhere you look - the door panels still appear fresh, as does the carpeting below. The dash area sports a great, aeronautically inspired design, with the clear functional gauges residing in its instrument cluster joined by a trio of additional displays at the center. Comfort and convenience features including air conditioning thats blowing strong and cold, power door locks and windows and an AM/FM/CD stereo that teams with a trunk mounted CD changer for added capacity. Driver and passenger airbags offer an added measure of safety, while the anti-theft device ensures that this street machine never leaves your possession unintentionally. Upgrades to the drivetrain, braking system and suspension elevate the Nismos abilities to a truly impressive level. Via special tuning, the 3.7 liter engine packs some serious punch - a full 350 horsepower - while a modified exhaust system gives it a sound all its own as it teams with a 6-speed manual transmission geared to take full advantage of its enhanced output while featuring a revolutionary Nissan innovation - a synchronized downshift rev matching system. The clutch action is light but responsive and the low-profile shift lever is very easy to maneuver, making this performer a blast to put through its paces. Even in its stock configuration, the 370Z is plenty nimble, but stiffened springs and stabilizer bars make the Nismo an even more accomplished corner carver. Smooth power steering makes this Nissan easy to navigate, while anti-lock power disc brakes at all four corners, with sizable vented rotors in both front and back, bring its set of 19 Nismo forged alloy wheels wrapped with Michelin tires to rapid, fade-resistant stops. This 2013 Nissan 370Z Nismo offers the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a true performance machine thats been meticulously configured to function seamlessly as a whole. Call today!
