1987 GNX

Motor (Australia) - - PAST BLAST -

Buick isn’t the first mar­que you think of for ’80s Amer­i­can icons, how­ever with a 3.8-litre turbo V6 send­ing power to the rear wheels, the two-door Grand Na­tional Ex­per­i­men­tal (GNX) is an odd­ball high­light. De­vel­oped in con­junc­tion with ASC/McLaren, the 206kW/488Nm six used a Gar­rett T3 turbo (with a ce­ramic im­peller) and in­ter­cooler. Ru­moured tweaks claimed to lib­er­ate 224kW/569Nm and a 13.26sec quar­ter.
