The Buick GNX is iconic -- one of the great modern GM performance cars. The ultimate Grand National, it was limited to 547 units and received a host of changes at the hands of ASC McLaren over the "regular" car. These included substantial upgrades underhood, most notably to the turbocharger and intercooler, and when it bowed, the GNX was advertised as having 275 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque. Another set of numbers, namely the car's sub-5-second 0-60 time, was evidence that the factory power rating was clearly on the low side.
A Texas car dealer has acquired Buick Grand National GNX #359 and has listed it for sale on eBay. #359's significance is that it has under 10 miles on the odometer and has never been titled despite the fact that it's 20 years old. All manner of original documentation is included, as well as the original battery, which was removed and stored. It also looks great in and out -- like something out of a museum -- and frankly, we ache for this most evil of G-Bodies. Apparently, we're not alone, as four bidders have pushed the car up over $85,000 USD. The reserve hasn't been met yet, though, and the seller has a "Buy it Now" on the car, too. If you click on that and agree to part with $109,980 USD, it's yours. Sure, you could get something like a 911Carrera S for the same money, but it wouldn't get half the looks, and we gather that the Buick's just as fun (and about as fast, too).

Thanks for the tip, Mike!
