Buick Velite Concept`s design is inspiring current models

Almost four years ago the Buick Velite concept was described with these words (and they apply even today): `Restrained extravagance`. The Velite, this amazing four-seat convertible has a sweeping exterior plus a globally influenced passenger area, continuing to characterize Buick cars of today.

`With its classic proportions and timeless beauty, the Velite looks as fresh today as it did when it was originally introduced` said Ed Welburn, the vice president at GM Global Design. `It remains an excellent example of Buick`s design legacy`.

Since its debut, four years ago, the Velite model became the design ethic symbol for Buick. This affirms its position as the international premium manufacturer of elegant autos, contemporary but cognizant of the company`s 105-year history.
