The classic styling of Buick's 1971 Riviera Sports Coupe was exemplified by the bold front end design which featured a long, tapered hood with strong sculptured line and v-shaped grill.

1971 Buick Riviera Sport Coupe.

The fleet design of this personal luxury car is achieved by a sleek roof line and thin windshield pillars that slope inward at the top.

A subtle accent line, distinctive to the Riviera, flows gracefully the full length of the car.

MaxTrax, Buick's exclusive computerized drive control systems that improves directional stability on slippery roads was offered as an option on the Riviera.

The dramatic aerodynamic styling is illustrated best in the unique tapered rear window design.

For 1971, the Riviera had completely new body design, and larger interior dimensions, and 35% more trunk space.

It was powered by a 455 cubic inch engine with nickel plated exhaust valves for greater durability.
