Car Description

This spectacular 1985 Buick Wildcat concept car incorporated four-wheel drive and a McLaren engine based on Buick's 3.8-liter V-6 block, mounted just behind the seats. The engine has 24 valves, dual overhead camshafts and field-programmable sequential-port fuel injection. Unlike other Buick dream cars, this one emphasized the engine. The top of the powerplant is visible through an opening in the rear deck. Besides an unusual aerodynamic design, the latter-day Wildcat features technical and design breakthroughs in joining the transparent and solid portions of the body. It has no traditional doors. As the canopy is raised, the steering wheel tilts forward for ease of entry. The body structure is composite carbon fiber and glass. This car, developed in cooperation with PPG Industries, was given the coveted 1986 award for prototype projects by the International Jury of the Car Design Award Turino-Piemonte, presented at the Turin (Italy) Auto Show. This image is available as a framed or unframed museum quality archive print that will last a lifetime and be a personal treasure of the history of General Motors. GM PhotoStore images are printed as a matte finish and continuous tone with a full bleed. The images have exceptionally sharp detail at an apparent resolution of 4000 dpi.
