400HP Buick Avista

I like this, I wonder what the price point will be. The Avista is a 2+2 sports coupe running a twin-turbocharged V6 cranking out 400 horsepower through the rear wheels.

Default 400HP Buick Avista

I like this, I wonder what the price point will be.





The Avista is a 2+2 sports coupe running a twin-turbocharged V6 cranking out 400 horsepower through the rear wheels. Look familiar? It should, as it reprises many of the design cues from Buick's last show-stealer, the Avenir, which debuted a year ago in Detroit.

"The Avista embodies the dynamic soul of Buick," said Duncan Aldred, vice president of global Buick sales, service, and marketing. "It is a modern expression of the brand's heritage of sophisticated performance, communicated with beautiful elegance."

The front end features a prominent grille with Buick's newly colored tr-shield as the centerpiece. It's flanked by wings that stretch out horizontally and edgy headlights that portend the appearance of future Buicks. There's an aggressive fascia, chrome-trimmed vents, and it all rolls on 20-inch wheels. The Avista has a 110.7-inch wheelbase (which is the same as the Chevy Camaro), and the tracks measure 63 inches in front and 62.9 inches in back, which Buick says makes for a sporty stance.

The B-pillarless cabin conjures the open layout of great boulevard cruisers of days gone by. It's done up in gray leather punctuated with carbon-fiber and aluminum accents.

Avista concept shows Buick's performance potential [w/video]

I really dig this car. especially since it's on the alpha platform which is already getting high praise under the new Camaro body.

throw in the 400hp V6TT that's just a nice bonus.

hopefully this goes into production.

Not too bad. I'll wait to see what the actual design turns out to be before making further judgement.

but I honestly would buy this unless they went all caddy on the pricing. fuckin cts-v bases at 84k now lol

the ats-v is the equivalent and bases at 63k hopefully the buick would be more like high40s/low 50s.

I feel it would come in around a 50k base.

that's not bad considering it's good looking and powerful with a stable platform under it.

the ATS-V is over priced and ugly.

this would destroy it's sales so I doubt it'll get made.

Exactly!


Even as a concept it's not that far out there. It looks like something that could see production without having to change anything really.
