The Buick Regal GS Show Car, or "Car Show", as it is a look at 255HP, high-pressure turbocharged direct injection four-cylinder, all wheel drive, six-speed manual Buick Regal GS absolutely everybody GM is hoping to build.
The high pressure version of the engine in the GS than the high-end turbo four in the gift packs 220 HP and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, but also get the sweet Haldex all-wheel drive system, the manual six speed transmission, suspension Hiperstrut, giant Brembo brakes, and improved aesthetics dead sexy. So here we have a dilemma. This GS is pulling bits and updates the body of the European spot OPC / VXR, but less power ... But certainly less weight. It's a bit of looking a gift horse in the mouth, as we take a sexy, fast, Buick everything we can. Well, assuming that GM does (probably).
The high performance engine that is expected to allow Regal GS to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 6 seconds. That performance is complemented by a four-wheel independent suspension with a high performance single Strut (HiPerStrut) design on the front. The system helps reduce torque steer and maintain HiPerStrut the negative slope in the curves. This improves the level of maximum grip wet and dry conditions and improves the direct feel of the road, while the isolation of undesirable feedback. Behind the wheel the driver experiences reduced torque steer, improved grip and greater power curves, with sharper handling, steering precision and feedback.
The Regal GS features a high-performance Brembo brake system with 14 x 1.2-inch (355 x 32 mm) cross-drilled rotors; four-piston, high-strength aluminum calipers, and high-performance pads.
