About Buick Riviera
The Buick Riviera is a luxury car sold by Buick. The Buick Riviera, General Motors' first car in the luxury segment, was praised after its debut. The Riviera's sweeping, flowing contours are exceptionally devoid of cut lines and unnecessary chrome ornamentation. There is some brightwork around parts like the grille, taillights, and side windows, but other than that, there are simply nice body-colored rub strips built into the sides. The full-length character line running above the fender breaks up the clean sides.
The Buick Riviera was introduced on October 4, 1962, with unusual bodywork that was unique to GM products. The design was nearly identical to the prototype, with cheaper headlight parts hidden in the hood. In both profile and detail, it's a daring design. With rarely a flat panel can be seen, the overall design is persistently curvy. Both ends of the body are sharply tapered, especially in front, where you can see just as much of the car's nose from the side as you do from the front. The back end similarly tucks in, although more subtly, to securely hold the full-width taillight assembly.

The Buick Riviera was facelifted in 1966. Parts like the X-shaped body, gearbox, and brakes were retained, but the new round body was longer, wider, and 200 pounds heavier. The headlight parts remained hidden but were moved back when not in use and returned to the horizontal position. The increased volume slowed acceleration without affecting the performance of the 425 engine. Inside, parts like the four seats were replaced by front and rear seats and a center console, with a choice of standard or conventional seats, making the Riviera a six-seater for the first time.
In 1979, the car was introduced, becoming the first FWD production model in the brand's history. In 1981, the Turbo was renamed T-Type, and the 350 cu in engine was replaced by a 307 cu in Oldsmobile engine producing 140 hp. The convertible was only available in two colors, and the only interior color was red leather. The last Buick Riviera rolled off the production line in 1999. The Riviera is the crown jewel of the brand and has received many awards. The drivers who appreciate the comfortable interior praise the model's robust equipment. While many other generations of cars have disappeared from the market, the Riviera is still attractive.
