Buick MPV Concept Chop

Recommended Posts

So based one what others have said and my own feelings toward the concept, I modified the design.

Talking with Invictaman, I got an idea to add an actual sweespear character line the runs parallel to the belt line.

However, I decided to tweak it by having the line move away from the belt line as it moved towards the front. It ends before the wheel wells but if it continued it would run into the headlight.

Thanks guys!

Camino, what else did you have in mind?

Your alterations to the profile make a huge improvement, it is the huge schnoz and the back end that need some tweaking now.

Mostly the huge schnoz.

Maybe a minor roofline tweak too.

Actually, that was done in the original chop. If you overlay them, I lowered the roofline and the hood a bit.

OK, hard to tell in profile.

Great chop. I'd like to see it with a longer wheelbase to give it a meaner stance. I mean, take it to the extreme for maximum cargo room and good handling (well, for a van).
