Bigger, longer, wider, and ‘more’ in nearly every way, the 6 trades its formerly modest dimensions for a significantly stretched skin. Similar to these check this out  But by dropping the popular wagon and hatchback models, is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ the best way to go? Time will tell.

Ah, power. It corrupts absolutely, right? Well, not in the case of this car. Usually in front-wheel-drive cars, more than 260 horsepower is too much to handle. Check this out . Not here. And really, who doesn’t like driving a sleeper “wagon” that will do 240 km/h without breaking a sweat?

We see a 3 Wagon. And apparently there’s nothing sporty about wagons. But naming this hatchback ‘Sport’ has helped it find favour with many drivers around the world, and really, the more wagons the better. Great practicality mixed with unbeatable driving pleasure.

Volvo C-70

The C70 Coupe and Convertible look almost too good to be Volvos. Indeed, the Volvo badging is the only thing with a straight line on these cars.

Two new variations are added for a total of four models this year. The HPT models are highly “motorvated” by a 236-horsepower 2.3-litre high-pressure turbo-charged in-line “five”. LPT models do almost as well with the 190-hp 2.4-litre low-pressure turbo motor. In either case, the engines drive the front wheels. For 1999, a new 4-speed electronic adaptive automatic transmission adjusts to the driver’s individual driving patterns. The selectable winter mode is still included. Volvo’s Stability and Traction Control (STC) is available. Increased security is provided by larger Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) airbags and the addition of a Whiplash Protection System.

Porsche Boxster

The entry-level Porsche is proof positive that automotive exhilaration is possible without explosive acceleration.

The Boxster is decently quick (0-100 km/h in 6.6 seconds), but no more than that. The real joy in driving this mid-engined 2-seater comes from its way of doing things rather than what it does: the blood-curdling wail of the exhaust note at 5,000-plus rpm; the near-perfect blend of steering feel and effort; the way you can explore its handling limits without fear that it will turn around and bite you.  Used low km Toyota Nissan . Essentially unchanged for ’99, the Boxster is propelled by a 201-hp, 2.5-litre Boxer six mounted behind the (two) seats. A 5-speed Tiptronic automatic, which permits sequential manual shifting, is optional to the standard 5-speed stick. The soft-top is power operated, an aluminum hardtop is optional.

Mercedes-Benz SLK

The SLK is famous for its roof – the automatic retractable hardtop transforms it from coupe to roadster in 30 seconds. While the SLK is a two-seat open-air automobile, it’s not a performance or handling maniac like some of its roadster competitors. But SLK moves in that direction for 1999 with the new availability of five-speed manual transmission and optional AMG-designed Sport Package.

In addition to cosmetic enhancements (side sills, and new front and rear facias), the Sport Package adds handling muscle via a bigger version of its staggered wheel and tire set up (225/45ZR17 front, 245/40ZR17 rear). Motivation remains the duty of supercharged 2.3-litre “four” which cranks out 185 hp, and 200 lb. ft. of torque anywhere between 2,500 and 4,800 rpm. Also carried over is the driver-adaptive 5-speed automatic.

Ferrari 550 Maranello

The 550 Maranello is your basic front-engine, rear-drive, two-seat sports coupe -NOT! While the formula and styling seem traditional and North End Garden City Maples Used Truck Dealership, there’s lots about this Ferrari that’s over-the-top and/or futurama. Like the 456M 2+2 it’s based on, the Maranello has an aluminum body welded to an alloy steel frame.

The long front hood harbours an even more potent rendition (485 hp at 7,000 rpm, 419 lb.ft at 5,000 rpm) of the 5.5-litre, 48-valve, V12. The 6-speed manual is mounted as a unit with the final drive in the rear. There’s traction control so things don’t get out of hand, but no, Sheldon, you can’t have an automatic.

With the exception of the baulky shifter, this Ferrari is as user-friendly as a Corolla. But unlike the Toyota, this thing’s geared for 320 km/h and can get there in an awfully big hurry.

The ’64 Chevy II by Chevrolet

New Chevy II V8! An optional-at-extra-cost 195-hp V8, to be exact. Chevy II is now the only car made that gives you a choice of Four, Six, or V8 power. Two Sixes, by the way.

And self-adjusting brakes. And all those other Chevrolet engineering features that keep you from dipping into your savings to keep it going. Come drive a Chevy II V8 at your Chevrolet dealer’s showroom.

New Chevelle! by Chevrolet

A kind of car you’ve never seen before! Not a new model or just a new name, but a completely different kind of car from Chevrolet for 1964. Outside, it’s a good foot shorter and a few inches narrower than the big cars. Parks in the tightest places. But the passenger space, leg room and trunk capacity are surprisingly generous. Eleven sedans, wagons, coupes and convertibles to choose from. Four engines: A 120-hp Six. A 195-hp V8. An extra-cost 155-hp Six. And an extra-cost 220-hp V8 with four-barrel carburetion. Body is by Fisher – and you know what that means in terms of quality and comfort. Brakes are self-adjusting. Service is seldom. Quality is by Chevrolet clear through. And so is the price, you’ll be happy to know.
