The circle closes. The Opel Monza study from 2013 seems to be something like the template for the Buick study Avista. From Detroit the way could go back over the pond.
The makeover at Buick could also benefit German Opel fans. At the Auto Show in Detroit, the General Motors subsidiary, which is not represented in this country, presented the study of a luxurious coupé that could go into series production as an Opel model in the future.
From the Opel Monza to the Calibra
The Buick Avista Concept is a powerfully drawn 2 + 2-seater with a long bonnet, muscular flanks and a short, crisp rear. The body looks ready for series production, only the interior still seems a bit too futuristic. All in all, a lot of the Avista seems like a copy of the Opel Monza study from 2013.
Officially, Buick doesn't say anything about production plans yet. But in the medium term the study could roll onto the streets as the successor to the Riviera Coupé and polish up the brand's pensioner image. In Germany, the predecessor would be different: the Opel Calibra built between 1989 and 1997. This is of great importance not only in Rüsselsheim. The coupé - at the time unbeatable in terms of aerodynamics - is very popular among young and future classic car enthusiasts. (AG / SP-X)
