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) saab-art.at.
