LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1987 Buick GNX The 1980’s was never a pinnacle for performance vehicles as auto manufacturers were berated with new government regulations covering safety, fuel economy and exhaust emissions. Buick engineers had been experimenting with turbocharging for years when the division introduced its first turbocharged V-6 engines in the 1978 Regal and LeSabre Sport Coupes. The 3.8L Turbo V-6 soon reinvigorated Buick’s performance image through continuing development that reached its peak in the 1987 GNX. Produced by McLaren Performance Technologies/ASC, the GNX’s 3.8L V-6 packed a new design of Garrett turbocharger with a ceramic impeller and a new intercooler to deliver 276 HP and 360 lb-ft of torque. It also employed specially tuned suspension, Goodyear Gatorback tires on 16-inch aluminum wheels in custom flared wheel wells and front-fender vents to extract engine heat. A 4-speed automatic, Positraction, power steering and brakes, tilt steering, power windows and locks, cruise control and air conditioning were standard equipment. The result was a potent performance car that could do 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds and was faster than anything else offered in the USA at the time. Only 547 were built, all finished in black with a black-and-gray interior featuring special white-faced Stewart Warner gauges, a power 6-way driver’s seat, special headrest embroidery, and a padded sport steering wheel.
