1983 F1 Team built SAAB 900 TURBO T16 *BLUEPRINTED* For Sale
For sale is my SAAB 900 T16 which has been owned/overhauled by Leyton House racing team. The car was owned by the F1 team who made the decision of carrying out an extensive list of modifications to enhance the car even further.
THERE IS NO OTHER CAR ON THE MARKET WHICH MATCHES THIS HISTORY AND SPEC. THIS CAR IS 1 of 1.
The car has 150,000 miles original miles which is extremely low for its age.
It has 5 previous keepers and was stood for 10 years in dry storage until I purchased the car. It is rock solid all round with no rust present.
10 MONTHS MOT (Last MOT had no advisories)
I cannot stress enough as to how well this car has been set up and how the engine, transmission and suspension are faultless. Below is the list which shows the great extent of work which was carried out:
Balanced bottom end
High duration Cams
Mocal 13 row oil cooler located directly behind grill
Mistubuishi late model turbo
Re-toughened gearbox with LSD
Braided clutch / brake hoses
Stainless brake pipes
Braided brake hoses
Koni sport suspension kit
9000 brake setup
16 inch alloys with recent tyres
Original aero Body kit in immaculate condition
Airflow wheel arches
Every pane of glass is genuine SAAB and etched with the reg number
Black leather interior with tan door cards and floor carpets.
Immaculate dash board which is CRACK FREE
Air fuel ratio gauge
Bar boost gauge VDO
On board lap timer located above rear view mirror
Fuel pressure gauges situated within engine bay
Daytime running lights
Power assisted steering
Recent work which has been carried out is as follows:
New clutch slave cylinder
New NGK iridium plugs
New distributor cap and rotor arm
As mentioned earlier, it runs beautifully and has no faults at all. The turbo boosts perfectly and enters the red zone without hesitation. THE CAR IS RUNNING AT 240 BHP with 1.2 bar of boost. This is a significant difference over the standard 175 BHP set up and completely transforms the car.
Things which need to be rectified:
Passenger side window motor needs replacing
Rear upper back seat needs sourcing as it is missing
Headliner is very good, however it could do with replacing as it has a slight tear at the rear
The car is over 34 years old so please don’t expect the bodywork to be in pristine condition. However, it is still in very nice condition and is rock solid with no rust in the usual places.
Please, no dreamers or time wasters
