David Spade’s 1987 Buick Grand National GNX
Actor David Spade is the proud owner of an impressive 1987 Buick Grand National GNX. While it may look dated by today’s standards, it can easily beat your vehicle in a drag race. Buick only made 547 models of the turbocharged GNX, so although not unique, it is incredibly rare, helping it earn a spot on this list.
McLaren Performance Technologies upgraded the turbocharged engine to deliver 360 pound-feet for torque and 245 horsepower. Those may not be whopping by today’s standards, but considering that this vehicle is 30 years old, it is pretty impressive. It can also reach 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, a better time than some so-called sports models today.
