Saab 9000 Turbo 1985

If special cars are for sale, then we like to write about it on the blog. A Saab 9000 Turbo from 1985 is such a vehicle, he catapulted the manufacturer yet in a new class. The turbo was expensive, very expensive even, and there were costly ways of customization.

A quick look at the price lists of the year 1985. Upper-middle or upper-middle class models were purchased under 50.000 DM, which was a lot of money before 31 years. To illustrate in which league Saab successfully and confidently participated, some examples:

35.000, - Citroen CX 25 Turbo

38.350, - DM BMW 528i

41.400, - The Volvo 760 Turbo

44.460, - DM Mercedes 280CE

44.950, - DM BMW 728i

46.341, - DM Mercedes 280 S

46.950, - DM Saab 9000 Turbo

47.700, - The Jaguar XJ 3.4

The 9000 Turbo shown here, which is for sale at Saab Art in Austria, has additional extras on board. For the automatic climate control 4.400, - DM were charged, the special coating "mother of pearl" was 1.950, - (!) DM expensive.

Saab served individual requests at a time when that was not the order of the day. The course for the provider of individual, high-quality vehicles was right. One would only have to pursue it consistently in the long term, then there would still be the small factory in Trollhättan.

The special paint "mother of pearl" unfortunately disappeared quickly from the price list and was no longer available for model year 1987 in Germany.

The Saab 9000 Turbo from Austria carries an extremely rare and elaborate paint, which was a trend in many high-priced sports cars in the 80er years. It goes well with the contour of luxury velor upholstery in "Bokhararot". The Saab is in Germany a contender for the coveted H-plate. At historic rallies he would be a starting place sure.

He has only run 114.000 kilometers, with a comprehensible, documented history. Certainly not perfect in condition, but a good starting point and a very rare car for collectors. Please contact Saab Art in Austria. Mail: office (at)

  • The correct address is:
    Saab-style Pichl at Wels

    Thank Tom for the great report !!!

  • ... Saab cult has stress ...

  • Is so cool ....

  • Beautiful. Personally, I do not usually like bokhararot interiors, but the combination fits very well here. The opportunity to acquire a CC which also has a special paint ex factory. Even more individual does not work.
    Thanks Tom for the post.

  • Great thing!

    I like CC. And I like cars whose first-time buyers had a taste and showed courage for color. Still the big on-board computer in, and then that thing would be pretty close to my ideal 9000.

    Oh, why was Verona's first-time buyer just so tentative ...
