From 1982 to 1987, Buick (yes Buick) used the Grand National to rise from overlooked GM family sedans, to the maker of America’s fastest, most powerful Muscle Car. The 1987 Buick Grand National Experimental (GNX), took the G-body auto to new heights as one of the baddest, blackest automotive triumphs in history.
This is everything you need to know, to get up to speed on the Buick Grand National.

Made a pretty gnarly mistake guys. The Maclaren that made the GNX was not the same guys who have a F1 team and make cars today like the P1. McLaren Performance Technologies was an American Michigan based company and is is them who did the work on the GNX.

The F40 beat every year Countach in acceleration and top speed if I correctly remember all those road tests I used to read back then. The GNX is one of my favorite cars. It could certaily compete and/or beat just about every factory car of the day in acceleration but it was speed limited to 120mph according to my old literature. Another gem is the 1989 Turbo Trans Am, sporting a similar engine, "rated" at 250hp that also spanked Corvette

Stomped the living SH!T out of one of these guys that "THOUGHT" he had a bad ass street rod.. As I screamed past him, he looked down at his gauges, looked at me, looked back at his gauges, looked back at my car as my girlfriend (at the time) raised her middle finger to the F-cktard. Grand National 13.7 to 12.7 second quarter mile car.. Stay off the track, don't talk SH!T on the street and keep the mouth shut if you drive a Grand National.

in Summer of 86 my brother pulled up in a black Grand National. He flipped me the keys...big mistake....2.5 minutes later I pull out into traffic on 4 lane road and floor it (of course) turbo kicks in ...and HOLY crap I'm Sideways! Pulled onto entrance to freeway, did the same, almost put it into the ditch!...the turbo lag was crazy on those cars. I brought the car back after the "Test Drive" and dropped the keys into my brothers hand hoping he didn't see my shaking hands.....I said " nice car" and walked away.

I think that Buick should bring back the gnx as it was in the 80s but with a lighter shell so it can be good on gas but keep the turbo charged v6

And, as a point of interest, the sequential fuel injection that came out in 1984 was 10 years ahead of the Corvette and Camaro.

One small detail you missed. In the 84 and 85 years, the motors were called "Hotair" cars. The turbo was mounted right on the manifold and were not intercooled. Other than that, good job.

the cheaper priced Buick GN was the regal t-type with the same GN V6 motor. Those were known as the sleepers for Buick. Most GN regal t-type owners bought those cars because it was cheaper on insurance. The speedo only read up to 85 mph. The auto insurance people never knew the power of those turbo V6 engines. Mustang 5.0 owners tried many times to out race the GN but couldn't. The GN engines became so powerful that Chevrolet Corvette got jealous were now in second place in performance. That forced General Motors to let Buick know that the Corvette is suppose to be the highest performance car period. So to make the final year of GN, Buick decide it to go all out as into GNX. Word has it that even the FEDs aquired a few GNX for their fleet of cars. The engine didn't die just yet. It made it into GMC small trucks & even the small suv. Those became the Syclone & Tyfoon. It even went into a few Pontiac GTA pace cars. If Buick still made the Grand National today, who knows how much power it would produce. I'd say about 400hp plus because todays chevy camaro V6 makes over 300hp & no turbo.

My dads high school friend had aGNX and he told me that they used to stick sandbags in the trunk to keep it down off the line. My dad had a trans am and they used to race all the time. The trans am actually won a lot bc my dad raced a ton and the other dude didn’t know how to drive a GNX lol

SOMETHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE GN REGALS. THEY HAVE A VERY WEAK BOTTOM END AND THEY CAN'T TAKE TOO MANY BEATINGS. AND SOMETHING ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW THE GN REGAL ISN'T THE ONLY CAR TO HAVE THAT MOTOR. IN FACT GM SHARED THAT MOTOR WITH THE PONTIAC MOTOR DIVISION AS WELL THE FIREBIRDS HAD THE SAME MOTOR IN THE LATE 80s SO DON'T BE SURPRISED SOME DAY WHEN UR COMPETITOR IS EITHER RIGHT ON UR ASS OR RUNS AWAY FROM YOU AT THE DRAGWAY. LMAO.

The Grand National is the most underrated car at the time. Also, I bought an 86 stock, stock, I ran 13.1 at 105 mph, with a 1.96 60' time. Actually stock is lying a little bit, I had a Tin Man cold air kit. I ran that time, the temperature was 49 degrees and the humidity was like 20%, that helped I'm sure as the next time to the track it was in the 80's during the day and the best I did was 13.5 at 101 mph. The 235 hp and 330 ft-lbs of torque for the 86, definitely underrated. Especially the torque. Not sure what changed from 86 to 87 to get 30 more ft-lbs of torque. I did upgrade my turbo, injectors and chip and I was able to run 11.70 at 115 mph with a 1.79 60' time. Upgraded again, have yet to take it to the track.

This is my favorite car of all time. (literally) I just wanted to point out that it isn't "that Mclaren" that tuned the GNX. Not the company named after F1 driver Bruce Mclaren. It was a different automotive performance technology company from the states who just happened to have that name and who sadly isn't around anymore. See Jay Leno's video on this car because they talk about this and how many people think it is the English super car company. I was surprised nobody pointed this out.
