1998 Buick Riviera Supercharged 2dr Coupe

Review

The '95-99 Riviera is a large, comfortable, quick, attractive coupe. Its design feeds from the classic Riviera lineage, & has a very retro feel. There’s a spacious interior, soft ride, torquey engine, heavy (safe) chassis, & traditional style. It has a gorgeous body, its curves and edges continuing the classic-car look with a wide & low stature & pinched fenders. One of the last big & fast 2-doors, the Riv is a definite "sleeper”. Leather (heated & motorized) buckets, power everything, auto climate control, CD radio, self-dimmed mirror w/compass, huge trunk, and VERY quiet ride make driving a pleasure.

Best Features

My favorite part is the incredible pull you get from 280 ft/lbs of torque. The supercharged 3.8L push-rod V6 is powerful & reliable. With mods, it does 0-60 in under 7 sec. Better yet, I see 30+ mpg on long trips.
