Buick Apple

This rendering was suppose to be a joke, a very stale Adam’s Apple joke. Anyway when done with the rendering, I quite like the Adam with the Buick grill. How about you? I think this car will sell well in China, the Apple.

The ‘Adam’ in both Opel and Vauxhall guises are deeply ugly. It is a real mix mash of styling with many quoting the original European Ford Ka, current Citroen DS3, new Fiat 500 and MINI as inspiration or stolen design inspiration. Whilst I can understand why GM has done this, I feel there is far too much going on. The name Adam, I guess, refers to the name of Adam Opel, which doesn’t have as much panache as Ferrari using the name ‘Enzo’ for their models!

Well done Theo, the grille appears to work much better on this one! Whilst I am dissapointed with the overall package including the name, I had never thought about a Buick version for China. I believe you are correct, when you say this would sell well in China. I much prefer the name Apple too, it just keeps things simple.

Yoda is wrong and BenC30 is right. The Buick grille works a lot better than the Opel one. I doubt the Americans would want this, even with the 1.4 engine only, but it might work well for China.

[…] A few simple renderings for the weekend. As read in Autoblog, Opel Cascada close to getting green light for US. I’ve read somewhere that though Buick don’t get the wagon variant of the Regal in US (unlike its’ Opel counterpart elsewhere), Buick is very keen in having the Country Tourer added to its North America line-up. Don’t forget too that Buick also want the Opel Adam, as rendered here. […]
