This 8th generation Riviera was the launch vehicle for GM's new G-body platform (GMX690), which was based on Cadillac's K-body architecture and lasted until 2011 when it was superseded by the Eurocentric GM Epsilon platform. The William L Porter designed coupe marked the end of an era for GM's big luxury 2-doors and is sorta cool to see on the road today. This one has 20k miles on the odo and is probably the nicest one for sale...cheap too!
The 8th generation Riviera is powered by a supercharged version of GM's legendary 3800 pushrod V6 - displacing 3.8 liters and cast in iron, the Buick version was labeled L67 and uses an Eaton Gen III M90 roots supercharger to increase the NA 205 horsepower up to 225 horsepower...disappointing on paper, but the additional 50 ft-lbs of torque at low RPM creates the noticeable result of front wheel peel.
