Yes folks, you’re looking at a bona fide drag car, more specifically the fastest NHRA Super Stocker ever built. Yeeah.
Built and tuned by legendary engine builder Kenny Duttweiler, this insane 1987 Buick Regal uses a twin-turbo 209ci V6 to produce a monumental 1,292 hp and 872 lb-ft of torque– that’s twice the horsepower of a new Z06 under your right foot. Holy *insert expletive* is right.
The listing also claims it’s the only Super Stocker ever to run in the 7’s, having performed an NHRA certified 7.98 at 167.4 MPH on May 1, 2003. And that’s not even the NHRA record, which it also holds.
The record pass was set on May 17, 2004, with a staggering 7.81 second run at 178.94 mph.
It was also the class winner of the 2000 and 2004 Indianapolis US Nationals and it holds ten additional National event class wins.
And it could be yours if you attend the Mecum Denver auction June 26-27. There’s no price listed yet, but the car went up for auction at Barrett Jackson Scottsdale in 2005 for $50,600 with no reserve. Clearly someone picked it up, though its anyone’s guess what they will ask for it next month.
All this talk about fast Buicks just makes us really hot under the collar for a new GNX…
