"The global appeal created an opportunity for Buick GM Design Center to raise our cooperation to new levels. Using virtual reality centers in Warren and Shanghai, designers fused the best ideas and cultural development of the Invicta," said Edward T . Welburn, vice president, General Motors Global Design.
