Why Buick is One of the Most Wanted Cars of All Times Image
Buick has celebrated 117 years since the first appearance as a high-class vehicle. With outstanding performances, excellent reviews and astonishing background, Buick remained in history as a remarkable car and as one of the oldest American active brands.

Short story of Buick

David Buick founded Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company in 1899, in Michigan, USA, offering incredible visions and amazing performances for those times. He is the one who developed the engine with internal combustion, the foundation of many other vehicles later in history. From 1900 to 1908, the Buick Company produced about 8900 vehicles, being on top sales, and surpassing Ford and Cadillac, two major and high-standard opponents from USA.

The valve-in-head engine was also an incredible innovation, due to David Buick’s chief-engineer, Eugene Richard, who received an award for this patern in 1904, in the name of the brand. Worldwide sales made Buick a trusted car and a most wanted vehicle, due to its luxurious appearance and excellent performances. Although Buick encountered many managerial changes, the brand developed daily and manufactured cars with V2 engines, for Flint Wagons, a car company across the street. In this picture, William C. Durant appears as an investor, and creates General Motors, taking Buick, Cadillac and Oldsmobile under his wing. 

Tiller steering, overhead valve, safety features, front suspension, automatic transmission, engineering innovations and amazing designs are only a few important developments related to Buick’s vehicle history. The British Royal Family successfully used a high-class Buick for its exclusive royal tour in Canada.

Apart from Buick, we remind you that you can also rent a Lamborghini in Dubai, if you wish to make a great appearance to all your important events in the city. You can also rent a Rolls Royce car, if you want to immerse yourself in good taste and elegance.

Buick models that conquered the world

The 1936 Buick Roadmaster introduced the 10 HP engine and was sold with $1,255 a piece. It was a four-door convertible with hydraulic brakes, coil springs, divided grille, and steel turret top. With a redesigned engine combustion chamber and outstanding design, the Buick Roadmaster was easily accepted and the company created around 4,000 vehicles in only 5 years. 

The 1949 Buick Riviera was a stunning car created to remind of the beautiful French Riviera. This amazing model became extremely popular in the 1950s and also 30 years later. With shorter wheelbase, V8 engine, luxurious interiors, unique style and brand new design, The Buick Riviera impressed movie stars and important personalities of those times, and here we mention McCann-Erickson, one of the biggest advertisers in the U.S., who also created the Buicks’ advert.

The 2016 Buick Envision is a mid-size crossover produced by General Motors in China. With 252HP, 2.0 liter V6 engine and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.2 seconds, Buick Envision stands on top of its category, due to excellent performances and high-class technology.
