Unique supercharged Oldsmobile concept, but is it worth the price?
Four years before GM decided to pull the plug, Oldsmobile came out with a sporty rear-wheel-drive Intrigue OSV concept featuring an experimental supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine. Only one car was ever made and now it’s up for grabs on eBay for a “buy it now” price of $21,500. It appears to be in great condition and the odometer show it has been driven for a mere 493 miles (793 kilometers).
The engine we’ve mentioned is good enough for 260 horsepower (194 kilowatts) at 5,600 rpm and 260 pound-feet (352 newton meters) of torque from 4,400 rpm delivered to those shiny 19-inch wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. Stopping power is provided by a set of 13-inch Brembo cross-drilled disc brakes on both axles while the sporty soundtrack is granted by a Borla exhaust.
In terms of design, it looks a tad more aggressive than the production Intrigue which was available when the concept came out. It’s all thanks to a ground effects package and a lowered sports suspension with Koni struts and springs. The interior has also gone through a series of upgrades compared to the standard car by getting leather-wrapped Recaro seats, a titanium pedal set, and some red accents to match the body finish.
Being a concept, it doesn’t come as a surprise it does not have a title. If you still want to buy it, you can make the seller an offer and perhaps pay less than the $21,500 asking price. It’s worth mentioning the 2000 Intrigue concept is currently located in Miami, Florida and comes bundled with the GM Heritage Museum placard.
