Earlier this Summer, Allan de la Plante spent a week with the already popular new Buick Regal and absolutely loved it. When he headed West after the Toronto Indy, I spent a couple of days wheeling the Regal around town. As great as the car is, I couldn’t help but feel that there was something preventing me from falling in lust with it. With the arrival of the GS model, I am smitten.
Outside, the already sexy exterior has been sportified with the addition of some satin metal trim at the fore and aft ends, more pronounced sill mouldings and a subtle trunk lid spoiler. The most obvious difference from the base model is the optional polished spider web 20″ wheels sporting Summer only performance tires. Our tester on the media launch earlier this week was finished in a striking black metal flake paint, which looks spectacular with the polished spiderweb like wheels.
