Legends of the last century: 1987 Buick GNX

This car after its production remained in the American brand car dealership for a long 32 years. Specifically, this car drove only 296 km.

Over the past few months, the American Buick GNX coupe has experienced a powerful wave of interest among modern car enthusiasts – one of the copies of this car, which, judging by the testimony of its odometer, traveled only 13 km, was recently sold at auction for $ 200,000. After that, there were other similar sales.

 A few hours ago, the famous American comedian Jay Leno published a video in which he tells in detail about the Buick GNX, which fell into his hands.

Of the 547 built sedan instances made during the 1987 Buick GNX, this is exactly the car that drove only 296 km. But the most interesting thing about him is that he has never been sold – all this time the car just stood in the warehouse of an American brand dealer.

 “What makes this car unique is the fact that it’s a brand new car,” says Jay Leno himself as part of his video tour. “It still has the manufacturer’s sticker on it, and it was with it that the car was displayed in a Buick dealership window in 1987.”

 In 1987, the Buick GNX sold for a starting price of $ 29,389 or almost a tenth of what you can pay for it in 2019. This particular instance of the machine was put up for sale in the state of California (USA), where it has since been shown for 32 years. The dealer company posted an ad on a whole page to request a price for a car, but not a single offer was made.

 Although the car warranty is no longer valid, the GNX sedan is actually still for sale. Under the hood of the American sedan is a V6 gasoline engine with a displacement of 3.8 liters and a power of 281 hp. (489 Hm). Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes 6 seconds, and the maximum speed is 200 km / h.
