With only 547 examples made, the Buick GNX is easily one of the most sought after American cars of yesteryear. The GNX had the performance to go along with its devilish good looks, packing a 276 horsepower turbocharged V6 under the hood – which made it faster than even the Corvette at the time. These all-black monsters are hard to come by in good shape, which might explain why this mint 1987 GNX fetched $106,000 at Barrett-Jackson’s recent auction in Scottsdale, AZ.
The car just so happens to be the lowest mileage GNX in existence, having only traveled 11 miles since the Miller Beer Brewing Company bought it and stashed it away in 1987. Prior to its sale at Barrett-Jackson, it was part of the Michael Jenkins Collection. Sporting serial no. 442, this GNX looks like it has been stuck in a time capsule since 1987. It still has the original window sticker, as well as the original invoice and purchase order. It hasn’t even been washed since it left the dealership more than 26 years ago.
The GNX might just be the coolest car Buick ever made and ever will make. That is, unless they produce another black two-door wearing the GNX nameplate, which they trademarked once again back in 2012.
