The turbocharged V6 version of the Buick Regal Grand National was the car to beat back in the day and looked menacing despite its boxy body. Only 547 were built, making it one of the rarest vehicles from the era, with very few of them to be found in near mint condition.

We’ve stumbled across of few with less than 20,000 miles on the odo in the past, past we never thought we’d see one of these machines with less than 11 original miles. Yes, what you’re looking at is the lowest mileage GNX in the world.

The vehicle surfaced at Barrett-Jackson’s recent auction event in Scottsdale, where it crossed the block for $106,400. Wearing serial no. 482, this GNX is in 100 percent original condition and still has its original window sticker on, as well as the original invoice and purchase order. In fact, the vehicle has never been washed!

The 1987 model year Buick was acquired new by the Miller Beer Brewing Company and spent its recent years in the Michael Jenkins Collection.
