Buick GNX from 1987 with a very desirable # 003 tag, is one of the earliest models of this company that the public has seen, while the cars # 001 and # 002 chassis numbers remain GM-owned.
With # 001, with no mileage, set in General Motors’s Heritage Collection salon, and the # 002 car which is currently in the museum display of Buick brand in Maine, the car you see in photos is currently a lifelike opportunity for any serious collector on the market.
When the car was new in 1987, it remained in the brand’s ownership for almost a year and served exclusively for the purpose of promotional work and marketing, which led to a range of numerous articles of the automoto magazine of that time.
In the end, this model was sold with about 8,200 miles on the odometer, by Fischer Buick’s house from Troy, to a local owner who added just a few miles before selling it in 1989. This Buick GNX remains completely original to this day, undamaged and unmodified, but it needs to be emphasized that until 1992 it had been garaged for nearly 20 years.
The long limousine requires only one complete mechanical service and only a few cosmetic refreshments to be returned to the perfect state of the original and confirm the appearance that this Buick GNX presents as a new one. The power of this machine comes from a 3.8-liter V6 engine, which is known for its great power for that age and performance figures of 276 hp and 500 Nm of torque.
In the standard edition, this bold legend takes only 5.5 seconds for the sprint to a hundred miles out, while independent tests have shown that the GNX transmits 400 meters in 12.7 seconds, which was better then what the Ferrari F40 could have realize.
his piece of American history of automotive, the earliest copy of just 547 GNX cars ever created, will be added to Barrett Jackson 2018 – the Scottsdale event that starts in January and has only 10,790 miles per milestone.
