Jeff Brock’s modded 1952 Buick Super Riviera aka Bombshell Betty. Designed specifically to break land speed records at Bonneville Speedway, it managed to hit over 165mph in 2013 before it was retired. What a car. What a lovely car.
Buick kicked off the 2016 North American International Auto Show with a stunning coupe. The Avista Concept represents the company’s vision for a modern grand tourer. It has a 3L 400hp twin-turbocharged V6 and 8-speed transmission, and rides on huge 20″ wheels.
There’s nothing stodgy about this sporty Buick sedan. Powered by a 259 hp turbocharged engine, and packing Brembo brakes and adaptive damping, it handles like a dream, has modern, athletic looks, and is fun to drive. Find out how well it drives over at 95octane.
The Avenir is a statement of Buick’s hopes to make its way back to country clubs and maybe even a rap song or two. The flagship sedan concept has a direct-injected V6, AWD, a long and low profile and a rear inspired by shooting brakes.
