Buick Regal GS Show Car
What is it? The Regal GS Show Car adds performance and technology to the new Buick sedan. Based on the Regal CXL that will be available this summer, the Show Car is powered by a 2.0-liter Ecotec turbocharged engine with direct injection. Estimated horsepower is 255 with a six-speed manual transmission and adaptive all-wheel-drive. Buick claims the GS can race from 0-60 mph in less than six seconds.

Inside the Regal GS, the interior is jet black and the instrument panel glows blue when sport mode is engaged. The steering wheel is suede-covered with a flat-bottom like those found in race cars and the Recaro front bucket seats that have a four-way lumbar support and cushion extensions.

The exterior has a lower body and lower center of gravity with two additional front air intakes and 20-inch wheels with performance tires.
