Win one of six RDJ Dream Cars including Robert Downey Jr.’s Riviera

The 1966 Buick Riviera was the first year of the second generation for the Riviera. It was a stunning futuristic design that featured power steering, power brakes, tilt wheel and an electric clock were all standard.

Buick upgraded the engine, ride and handling for 1966 and as advertised “all worked in harmony." Standard engine in all 1966 Riviera’s was the “465 Wildcat” 425 cubic inch V8 with 340hp at 4400 RPM and 465 lb-ft of torque.

The transmission was a three speed Super Turbine Automatic.

The RDJ Dream Riviera was originally Burgundy Mist with a Black Vinyl interior.

This car's a future version of itself.
