The classic car insurance firm applauds the Regal GS, which it believes would be a future collectible. Specifically, Hagerty likes Buick’s decision to create performance sedan with a manual transmission, explaining that Buick is offering real three-pedal manual transmissions at a time when sporting makes don’t. General Motors North America President Mark Reuss said that the Regal GS is a “unique and thrilling vehicle for the Buick brand.”

Reuss added that the Regal GS deserves to be considered as one of the best built by Buick. Hagerty said that to be mentioned on the annual Hagerty Hot List, the vehicle has to be geared toward the driving enthusiast “beyond just being a form of transportation.”

”In order to be included on the annual Hagerty Hot List, the vehicle must be geared toward the driving enthusiast beyond just being a form of transportation,” said Hagerty.”Like the other Buick classics listed here, the 2012 Regal GS will be remembered more than most of its peers for many years down the road.”
