Several Buick Reatta gathered in Los Angeles

Buick developed the Reatta, an impressive model that might become a classic collection car. Back in 1988, the model was presented for the first time as a coupe with a soft-top convertible, in 1990 as a two-seat car and ever since, until 1991, the two continued to be produced. For the ones who do not know, the Reatta was a mass produced model, but hand-built in Michigan at the Reatta Craft Center. The carmaker used a shorter version of the GM E Tornado and Buick Riviera as platform, just like the Cadillac Allante. Power was produced by a Buick 3800 V6 engine capable of developing 165 horsepower and 210 lb. ft. of torque. This output was available for the models built between 1988 and 1990. All the other ones built in 1991were capable of developing 170 horsepower and 220 lb. ft. of torque. All the power produced in both cases was sent to the front wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. Its main features were the digital dashboard and center console screen used for controlling the air condition, audio and so on. At the 2012 All GM Show, 15 Buick Reatta vehicles gathered in one place last weekend creating thrills among visitors. 11 units of the Reatta in both body styles were found on eBay and the prices were different starting at just $2000 to $24.500 for the 1991 white coupe available in the photo gallery below. The models were found in different conditions. 2.437 Reatta convertibles were produced between 1990 and 1991. The big event, the 2012 All GM Show, was sponsored by the local Buick chapter of Buick Club of America, but the Reatta gathering was actually independent. Source: carscoopblogspot
