With all eyes on Cadillac for the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, Buick just blind-sided everyone with an official online reveal of the LaCrosse GL Concept. With it, the brand could take another step into a more luxurious realm, as the interior is decorated in rich textures and colors.
Inside the cabin of the LaCrosse GL Concept we find a level of ambiance Buick has never achieved before. The seats, doors and instrument panel surfaces seem to have been inspired by a slice of tiramisu by looking at curving and contrasting dark cocoa brown and caramel chocochino leather. The GL’s ice-blue French stitching also compliments the cabin’s ambient lighting of the same hue. Adding to the niceties is a suede headliner, abandoning the cheap looking fabric wrapping usually seen otherwise. The steering wheel features suede as well.
The exterior is coated in a “cabernet red” paint with tinted chrome accents and satin-finished 20-inch rims. Considering there have been photos of a LaCrosse testing at Milford sporting the same wheels (and Brembo brakes), something tells us that this car won’t remain a concept for very long.
