The Super model was one of the fastest modern production Buicks ever built, with a factory top speed of 150 mph (240 km/h), and 0–60 mph times of 5.7 seconds.
Only the 1987 Buick GNX offered a similar level of performance ratings until the Super was introduced. Interior changes included special Super badged cluster with blue face, a wood grain shift knob, and dream weave leather seating.
CX added a leather-wrapped steering wheel, theft deterrent system, illuminated vanity mirrors, driver information center personalization and more. The La Crosse Super was positioned as a higher-performance model of the sedan with revised front end styling, as well as a return of displaying four Ventiports under the hood, a rear spoiler, projector beam fog lights, Magnasteer, larger brakes, and revised suspension tuning with standard Stabilitrak. The combination of a V8 and front-wheel drive are not often utilized due to torque steer which is present in any front-wheel-drive car.
This powertrain was also found on the Grand Prix GXP, Impala SS, and Monte Carlo SS.
Underground platforms provide direct Thameslink trains south to Croydon, Gatwick Airport and Brighton.
Power is routed to the front wheels via a 4T65-E automatic transmission (4T65-E HD on Supers).
Interior colors for the Super were Platinum and Mocha Brown, while exterior color choices were Mocha Brown Metallic, Black Onyx, Red Jewel Tincoat, and Platinum Metallic.
The La Crosse received a Good overall score in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's frontal impact crash test and a Marginal overall rating in the side impact test.
St Pancras International isn't a mere airport terminal for trains, it's a spectacularly-restored piece of history that will take your breath away.
