I've had my fun with it, now you can have yours! The performance of this car is truly astonishing. It will outrun my Jaguar XKR supercharged V8 easily. It will light the front tires, anytime, in second gear, without benefit of dropping the clutch. I have personally exceeded 150 mph, with more to come when I chickened out. A true sleeper.
This is not a show car, nor a garage queen. It has been driven, but not raced. It has been my car of choice for trips, out of my whole car collection, for the last three years. The factory engine has been modified by upgrading the ECU, installing a free flow exhaust, and an oversize intercooler. The Saab aficianados say these mods give it around 300 bhp, give or take. I say that is conservative.
It has newer tires, and Borbet wheels, replacing the play dough originals. It has been fitted with the Viggen rescue kit, to tame the ferocious torque steer. The convertible top itself is good, but there is a leak in one of the hoses operating the fifth bow (back window), necessitating a top up of the reservoir from time to time, and the need to manually help the back window up and down. The rest of the top works fine. This is the only mechanical defect, to my knowledge. An afternoon of work, and a $100 hose will cure that problem.
Cosmetically, there are some paint chips, and a cracked front air dam, and some slight cracking and wear on the driver's seat bolster. Pics are provided of both deficiencies.
This is an honest Viggen, with lots of grins left in it. I hate to see it go, but just have too many cars in my collection. Give it a new home. Reserve is reasonable.
