1979 SAAB 99 Turbo FIA Rally Car For Sale

The Saab 99 Turbo was the first Saab turbocharged model. The initial run of 100 cars of this model was produced in 1977. These cars were driven mainly by Saab’s own engineers and test drivers, and also by a number of selected privateers. This superb Saab 99 Turbo was fully rebuilt and prepared for Rallying by Carestoration in 2011 in preparation for the Classic Acropolis Rally in Greece. It’s a Period: I, 1977 – 1981 rally car and it competes in FIA Class: CT35. The car was used as a safety car in two Greek National Rally events, and compete in 3 rallies in 2012. The car has been prepared faithfully so as to replicate the car in which Stig Blomqvist won the Belgian Rally Boucles de Spa back in 1976, notching up the 99’s first international victory. By 1979 the Saab 99 Turbo was a Q-car legend, and with which ‘Stig’ won his third Swedish Rally – the first ever WRC event to be won by a turbocharged car. Modifications in accordance with FIA Historic regulations have been done. The 8 Valve 2 litre, B type engine is rebuilt producing 180-200 Bhp . Suspension is by Bilstein and Spax perfect for both gravel and tarmac events. The car has a strengthened body shell with a welded 12 point, FIA homologated roll cage, oil cooler and period correct brakes making this a fabulous car ideally suited to any kind of rally. The car will be sold with both spare wheels and tyres. This is an extremely well prepared rally car that offers a huge amount of performance combined with super reliability in a car offering strength and safety, all for a very modest budget. The car is fantastically suited to winter events, as well as gravel, and tarmac. Technical:- Rebuilt engine producing 180 to 200 bhp (with regulation valve (not allowed in FIA events) Bilstein/ Spax Suspension – Boxed front lower wishbones with adjusted camber/caster. FIA Roll Cage Fully welded bodyshell Competition half shafts for durability Competition GT exhaust Aeroquip brake hoses Close ratio gearbox Forced front engine mount Aluminium Sump guard Front valance removal for easy engine access Rare US type bumpers Easy final drive change* A clever feature of this car is that the engine is the opposite way round than normal, with the gearbox underneath the engine like in the Ferrari Testarossa. This is so that the flywheel and the clutch plate are on the front of the car and the timing chain is on the bulkhead side; Meaning you can easily replace the constant gear chain and as a result it’s possible to change the final drive of the car rather than doing it on the differential. Car is located in UK, Suffolk in a show room You can see or drive the car after appointment with Gerarld Seager 237 Ipswich road Colchester Essex CO4 0EW Tel 01206 511284 [email protected]
