If you’ve never heard of an Icon Derelict, then this just looks like an old 1948 Buick Super convertible in need of a good paintjob. But what you almost certainly won’t expect is for it to cost well into six figures – exactly the way it looks on the photo. Jonathan Ward, mastermind of the Icon Derelict programme, discovered that there’s a pretty decent market for high performance cars with patina – essentially he creates the ultimate sleepers. Like other Icon Derelicts, this Buick Super comes with thoroughly revised underpinnings – including a state of the art chassis from Art Morrison – and modern powertrain too. The original straight-eight engine was put aside in favour of the Corvette ZR1’s engine! That means 700hp being sent through a 4L85E four-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
