While many may dream of owning a Buick Grand National, we all know the buck doesn’t stop there. Nope, the crown jewel of the Buick Regal is indeed the Buick GNX.
The GNX was a limited-run variant of the Buick Grand National, which was brought to life with help from McLaren Specialty Products. The Buick GNX began life with a 3.8-liter V6 engine but was then sent to McLaren to have a McLaren-developed turbocharger and air-to-air intercoolers installed. The result was a cult classic.
Only 547 1987 Buick GNXs were built, and the final build number is heading to auction.
Mecum will auction number 547 of 547 at its Kissimmee showing where it’s expected to fetch up to $250,000. This example has been stored in a climate-controlled facility and reads only 60 miles on the odometer. This is as factory fresh as they will come unless Buick hands over build number 001 or 500. Those two GNXs reside in a museum.
The current owner will auction the GNX off with a personalized GNX book, jacket and owner’s manual from the vehicle’s original purchase. You best start saving any holiday monies now.
