This car is very fast capable to hit 0-60 mph under 4 sec and had top speed 163 mph unlimited. Comparing to standard GNX which can reach 4.3 sec for 0-60 mph and top speed 124 mph limited and unlimited about 150-155 mph. With lighter weight, this car also corner faster than standard GNX.

One of the fastest US car in 1980's. This GNX was a FBI project for pursuit vehicles. But later, the project was scrapped because this Buick is too exclusive for FBI in that day. However, Buick already modified around 50 GNX to become Stealth Pursuit Vehicle. Some of them is destroyed but the other is made into sale. It's hard to make any different between standard GNX and Pursuit model because they had no different from outside. However, Pursuit Special is faster and more lighter than standard GNX.
