As featured in Road Magazine: http://www.roadmagazine.co.uk/2016/11/08/project-cars-welcome-saab-900-t16s-ruby/ History: Saab 900 T16S Ruby Only 150 Ruby 900 T16S models were produced, for the UK market alone, in the final year of classic Mk1 Saab 900 production, 1993. The Ruby nomenclature unsurprisingly comes from the deep red wine paintwork, which included body-matched bumpers and grey (not silver) Aero 15-inch alloys – a true design classic – with 195/60×15 tyres, and Saab’s uprated 30mm lowered sports springs and uprated dampers, anti-roll bars and bushes rounding off a lovely body and chassis specification. Additionally, under the hood, the Ruby was as sporty as the 900 Turbo T16S ever got – coming loaded (like the aero body-kitted Carlsson edition of 1990 & 1992) with the uprated ‘Carlsson’ 1,895cc turbocharged and engine – mounted the ‘wrong way around’ and at a jaunty Saab 40-degree angle, with its gearbox underneath, giving it a great low centre of gravity, and superb front-wheel drive handling, as standard. This top-spec engine included the highly desirable upgraded (Red) Automatic Performance Control (APC) system giving 185 bhp and 204 lbft torque (10bhp and c20lb ft over standard T16), in a car weighing just under 1,200Kg, which still makes it fast today, knocking 130+mph and 0-60mph in under eight seconds, with huge mid-range overtaking punch. The APC 'red box' runs more boost pressure on the Garrett T3 and runs at the edge of engine knock/pinking/detonation – depending on what octane level of fuel you run. The system has knock sensors in the intake manifold and decreases boost pressure through the wastegate if knock is detected, or winds the boost & ignition up to the max when it’s not. Inside the iconic Saab, aircraft-engineering-inspired interior – behind that superb curved windscreen – the Ruby Edition has more tricks up its under-stated and effortlessly cool sleeves, coming with (the world’s most comfortable) buffalo leather seats with toasty and on-trend Zegna pure wool inserts in the seats and door panels and even air conditioning (remember, this is 1993!). It's a fantastic car. Reluctantly selling to invest money into a new business venture.
