Yes I Do Want A 321 HP Twin Turbo Buick Wagon With A Stick

It is said that the main reason GM kept Buick around after the bailout is because the Chinese have a crack-like addiction to buying them. Most of them are rebadged Opels/Vauxhalls from Europe these days, but we don't get the coolest ones.


Example one: the Opel Adam S. Example two: the Vauxhall Astra VXR hot hatch. Example three: the Vauxhall Insignia VXR Supersport wagon, which stars in the latest video from our friends at XCAR.


That's the Buick Regal to us, except this one dumps that car's perfectly respectable turbo four for a twin turbo 2.8-liter V6 pumping out 321 horsepower. And it comes in wagon form with a manual transmission. Need I say more?

Host Alex Goy calls it "pleasingly mental," but it's still mostly refined enough to work as a daily driver. At the same time he's not sure it has the same appeal to buyers as a comparable Audi, even though it's quite a bit cheaper.

How about sending it to America, where it belongs? I bet we could find someone who would appreciate it.

It's a bit boring though, there's only one Vauxhall I want with 6 cylinders and two turbos, and that's one made by Lotus.

370hp anyone?
