    LaCrosse Super/Ultra/we ***Updated***

    Working on this for about a day and a half. I know its not done but i need some feed back as to where to go next designwise. The purpose of the car is to somewhat fill the gap left by the Bonni not size wise but purpose wise. This is Luxury with Attitude.

    What's funny is that this is very feasible for Buick. Lower it, beef up the wheels and tires, add a mean but nice hood and a more aggressive lower front clip. It totally changes the attitude of the car. I think the Lacrosse already has some handsome looks to it... they are just hidden in some of the vanillaness.

    This really looks good. I'm not too sure whether I totally like the hood design... has a bit of an alien look to it or something... but that is my opinion so don't sweat it. What all have you changed?

    Added lower side skirts, lowered, enlarged the grill, added enclave headlamps (might change), larger wheels from Aura production concept, wider front rolling stock, black chrome, and finally center hood section from 2000 Buick Regal GNX Concept Car (modified)

    While I was at work it came to me what to do to this car so that it could live up to it's, "Luxury with Attitude" campaign.

    Presenting the Buick LaCrosse Ultra GSX

    I like everything except the headlights and the hood. That Buick will never look good with an air scoop. Also the lights look like they were taken off a hyundai or kia- don't separate!

    Enclave headlamps and i'm working on a version with a different hood set-up that one looks worse the more i look at it.

    This is the GSE LaCrosse. Same basics as GSX except more luxurious and toned down hood.

    Looks even better with the toned down hood. I wish GM would see this.

    1. The portholes on the hood were OK. The front scoop (a la Z06) was too much.

    2. Instead of the Enclave, use the Velite for the grille (and possibly headlamps).






    3. Can you make the rims less "luxury" and more "sport"? Perhaps 5 spoke.
