One of the best GNX's in the world, in out AND underneath.
Clean and clear title
Several well known stars are buying them.
One of the hottest cars on the market.
Up until the GNX was made, this was the 'only' car ever to be displayed on the turntable in the Corvette Museum other than the Corvette itself
Buick rated it at 276 Horsepower (the magazines rated it at 300 HP), actual is much closer to 400 Horsepower
Deemed the fastest production sedan in the world. Beat the Ferrari Testarossa (12 cylinder - 385 HP), Lamborghini Countach and right beside the Porche 911 Turbo
The Ferrari Testarossa, Lamborghini Countach, and Porshe 911 Turbo are all great Supercars and made in limited production, but thousands were made over several years time, whereas the GNX was made for only one year and far less production numbers.
Also beat the Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette (375 HP), a GM oops
0-60: 4.6 seconds
1/4 mile: high 12's
These cars have been collectors since day one and is a sound investment, even years and decades to come
Even replacement parts had exclusivity, you had to provide a VIN and (I think proof of current ownership), and turn in the old part to get a new one
Many original parts are not available, even today
The GNX holds up well through weak markets and look when they do in STRONG markets
Now antique status at 35 years old
On track to be a Million Dollar car someday
Originally 200 to be made, then 500 to represent the Indy 500 and Daytona 500, (also Buick's 500 best selling dealers). Finally 547 in which the select 60 program to receive, but only "47" were qualified dealers, hence the "547" made.
547 made and for one year only
McLaren took 547 GN's and modified the cars at their plant (partnering with Buick):
GNX Reprogrammed motor and transmission for more boost and tighter shifts
Garrett T-3 Turbo with ceramic impeller, much less turbo lag, quicker spool, higher boost
GNX Custom torque converter and transmission cooler
Unique GNX aluminum rear end cover
Ladder bar, raises rear end for heavy launch
Low restriction GNX dual exhaust with dual mufflers
Functional fender flares/vents
Speed rated Goodyear Gatorback directional tires
Unique aluminum wheels
Biggest tires and wheels available at the time
Stewart Warner gauge cluster
GNX Dash Plaque
Never molested, chipped, tuned, etc. Not even bolt ons
Last Year for the Rear Wheel Drive Buick G Body
Patent filed for an up and coming new Buick Logo so this one will be a classic
Younger Brother to the Classic GSX
Heated Storage in Winters
Well preserved original car all around - take a close look at the clean undercarriage and compare it others
Will be moved to storage facility for pickup like one shown in the pictures. It is not housed here.
Started up and run to temperature at least 2 times a year, driven sparingly
These are still on the rise and one of the hottest cars if not 'the' hottest car on the market
I bought my GNX well over a decade ago for only one reason, because I was obsessed with it and was my ultimate dream car. I did not buy it with hopes for making or fear of losing money.
Previous 2 owners cared for it for around a decade each. I have owned it for nearly 15 years, so no flipping or short term ownership.
My GNX has never left the United States
Very common 100 year old cars that were made in the millions and even tens of millions are worth close to 20 X the value today
Now figure only 547 made, for only 1 year, and another 1, 5, 10, 15 years down the road.
As time goes on you see less and less with demand always high and supply falling shorter over time. This will increase the value
Many many theories like above but this one is a great example
A gorgeous repainted 6,000 mile GNX recently sold for $200K plus
A couple private trades are in the $325K-$350K range
Auction of 2 GNX's reached a final price of $300K+
A private offer for $500K was turned down on a single digit mile GNX, Yes, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars
The last Grand National I sold, when it came time for the carrier to pick it up they said 'This is the nicest one I have ever seen!'. The quote is from the driver who works for a national carrier company so they see many of them. This GNX is one of those GN examples.
Value has been recession proof for the last 15 years+
Put in your living room and the picture in the garage or drive it
