Buick unveiled the 2008 Invincta show car at the Auto China 2008. The four-door midsize sedan with a coupe-like roofline presents a bold direction for Buick’s new generation of vehicles in the world’s two largest vehicle markets – the United States and China.

Invicta has evolved from Buick concepts such as the 2004 Velite convertible and 2007 Riviera coupe, both of which received accolades for their thoroughly modern adaptation of classic Buick themes. Invicta was designed collaboratively by GM centers of expertise in Warren, Michigan, and Shanghai, China. The name, which is Latin for “invincible,” returns to Buick after a 45-year hiatus in the United States.

Invicta is powered by Buick’s first direct injection turbocharged engine, a four-cylinder powerplant that produces 250 hp and 220 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission for maximum fuel efficiency.

Invicta’s designers drew inspiration from the Riviera concept. Invicta features modern and sleek proportions with exterior lines that flow uninterrupted around the vehicle. For example, Invicta’s cat-eye headlamps transition into the Buick heritage-inspired sweepspear design cue, which flows seamlessly along the body sides and merges into the taillamps. Similarly, one can trace the top of the headlamp casing to the roofline and the rear of the vehicle without interruptions.
