Lot 224 - 1994 Saab 9000 CDE Turbo
|Odometer reading||107,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £1,811|
The Saab 9000 is an executive car that was produced by the Swedish company from 1984 to 1998. Representing the company's foray into the executive car scene, it was developed as a result of the successes of the turbocharged 99 and 900 models. The 9000 remained in production until it was replaced by the Saab 9-5 in late 1997. Saab designed the 9000 as part of the Type Four platform in conjunction with the Italian automaker Fiat who retailed similar derivative versions as the more basic Fiat Croma, the luxury themed Lancia Thema, and the sports-oriented Alfa Romeo 164. The front of the Saab is radically different from the Italian siblings due to the much improved crash protection.
This Saab has had only three former keepers and has covered 107,000 in 24 years on the road. A full and extremely comprehensive service history accompanies this 9000 Turbo; it is important that such a vehicle is well maintained. Benefitting from a good specification including air conditioning, electric seats and manual transmission, this Saab is thought to be one of only three surviving manual transmission examples remaining. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 4th February 2019, we are advised M236 SSF drives with no known faults. With Saab no longer manufacturing vehicles, good examples such as this are becoming highly desirable. Offered for sale without reserve.
