    Buick Invicta.

    One word. Invincible.

    Premium and Luxury models get the 3.6L "High Feature" DIV6, redesigned to get 310hp.
    Hybrid models get a 3.0L DIV6 mated to a "Two-Mode" hybrid-electric powertrain for a combination 285hp.
    Ultra models get a 4.8L "Ultra" DIV8 good for 405hp.

    Designed to compete against the Lexus GS, Infiniti M, and Acura RL.

    Luxury and performance together, functioning as one.

    I like this, the arc of the roof is very pleasant, yet sporty.

    Is the vehicle RWD-based? Proportioning looks very good, and makedly different than your usual drawings.

    What surrounds the wheel wells? Is it flaring of the fenders? Right now it sort of reminds me of the cladding you might see on a Subaru or MINI.

    Sharp! Like chaseabryant, I'm assuming this is a RWD based sedan. If Cadillac is going to play in Buick's sandbox by offering FWD based luxury sedans, then I think it's only fair that Buick should get a RWD sport luxury sedan of its own.

    Good job!

    It's flaring. I didn't follow the arc lines all the way down to the bottom for some reason. There goes me being stupid again...

    This is probably one of my best-proportioned drawings yet.
