Minichamps MIN107141200 1956 Buick Centurion Concept Car (1:18 Scale) "The ultimate concept car will move so fast, even at rest, as to be invisible."
- J. G. Ballard

The Buick Centurion was sold by the Buick division of General Motors from 1956-1957 and 1971 through 1973, replacing the Buick Wildcat as the sporty rendition of Buick's full-size car. The Centurion name was inspired by a Buick concept car, that name coming from the professional officer in the Roman Army. The current car's symbol was not the traditional Buick tri-shield, but a side profile of a centurion. It was not, as some have suggested, a play on the Buick Century.

The Centurion name was first used on a Buick concept car in the 1956 Motorama. It featured a red and white fiberglass body, airplane like interior design. a full clear "bubble top" roof and the first Backup camera in place of a Rear view mirror. This car currently resides in the Sloan Museum "Buick Gallery" in Flint, Michigan.

Pictured here is a 1:18 scale replica of a 1956 Buick Centurion Concept Car. Sold Out!
