The Buick Avista coupe is just as gorgeous in person

The Avista looked great in Buick's press photos. Now that I've seen it up close, I can confirm that it's just wonderful from every angle. It's just a concept car right now, but Buick must build it. I won't accept any other outcome.

This lithe, sparkling blue coupe is based on the same GM platform as the Chevy Camaro and offers up 400 horsepower courtesy of a twin-turbo V-6. I can't help but wonder what would happen if Buick not only made this car, but ended up offering a performance version with, say, a big V-8. Crazier things have happened, and there's some precedent for it — Buick does offer the Regal GS, a performance-minded variant of an otherwise unremarkable family sedan.

If you get a chance to hit NAIAS during the public days, this is one of the main cars you need to see. Trust me.
