A Luxury Sleeper, Retro Style
By Aaron S. on


1998 Buick Riviera Supercharged 2dr Coupe


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.
