Buick reveales more images of the Riviera Concept

Buick Riviera made its debut last year at the Shanghai Auto Show. And in just a few days it will make its North American debut at the Detroit Auto Show. The Riviera has been engineered to accommodate a new hybrid system that will go into production at Shanghai GM, GM’s flagship joint venture with SAIC, in 2008.

The Buick Riviera, with its tightly stretched carbon fiber body panels, combination of positive and negative curves, strong front and rear identities and gullwing doors, captures the essence of Buick classics, Welburn said, while presenting a thoroughly 21st century design.

The Riviera design is structured around the Buick tri-shield logo, sitting proudly on a trihedral waterfall grille which is formed by three meeting planes. This takes the traditional Buick treatment to a new level of sophisticated boldness.

The Buick logo leads into a reflective strip through the hood, a mark of respect to the distinctive mid-hood crease prevalent in classic Buicks. Elongated LED headlamps flow up the hood sides to three-section, top-mounted chrome portholes as a single piece of jewelry.

The logo, hood strip, headlamps, side mirrors and rocker covers all have ’icy green’ backlighting available at night, matched by backlit logo and exhausts at the rear.

Designers have cleverly incorporated several other design signatures from the original Riviera generation. They include the "double sweep spear" line along the bodyside and the flared tail design.

Well, it is really an impressive concept, and I’m truly so excited with the market production of this Riviera concept! smiley I just only hope that it is not an electric vehicle.

Well it is really an impressive concept. I’m so excited with the market production of this Riviera concept! I really can’t wait for that.

I love the futuristic interior design of this Riviera concept even the door. I super love the door. haha I just don’t like the front but still I know that this one will be an eye catcher either.

The way how the doors open are so futuristic. Is the inside of this car really blue in real? I’m not so impressed with the exterior design.

i like the blue lighting inside and how the door opens up
