The 'Viggen' (English: Thunderbolt) is named after the Saab 37 Viggen aircraft and was developed by Saab with input from the Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) Group. This example is one of only 4,600 Viggens made worldwide during that period and just one of 245 convertibles exported to the United States in 2000. It is a one-owner car that was a European delivery and garage-kept for most of its life. It was made in Nystad, Finland in June 2000. Keeping with tradition, the ignition switch is still between the front seats; a unique feature and a safety-minded one to save a kneecap during a collision. Dressed in a Viggen-exclusive Lightning Blue, (code 270), the car's paint and trim are in overall very good order. The black canvas, power-folding top is in very good order, including rear glass with defroster element. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy, while the cargo area is in satisfactory order, and the body-colored bumpers fit tightly to the car. The exterior of the Viggen features a larger rear wing, aerodynamically designed bumpers and side skirts, model-specific 17-inch alloy wheels and upgraded brakes. This car born from jets rolls on Michelin Primacy MXM4 radials, size 245/45R17 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a Saab alloy wheel. The tires and wheels are all in very good order. The Viggen is powered by Saab's 2.3L, 16-valve, DOHC B235R slanted engine, running at a 9.3:1 compression ratio and fitted with Nimonic valves and a Mitsubishi TD04-HL15-5 turbocharger. In 1999, the Viggen was the first 9-3 to use Saab's Trionic 7 engine management system. The cars are equipped with a higher capacity intercooler, performance-tuned ECU, flow-through muffler and tip, stiffer gearbox casing and stronger output shaft, a heavy-duty clutch and pressure plate, stiffened and lowered springs with revised spring rates, firmer dampers and stronger CV joints and driveshafts. Backing this engine is a five-speed manual transmission. The Viggen is only available with a five-speed manual transmission which features an electronic torque-sensing function to prevent damage to the gearbox. Driver convenience features included electronic climate control, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows, power locks, power sideview mirrors, power front seats with heat and memory settings and cruise control. Safety equipment includes dual front airbags, side airbags and anti-lock brakes. The interior offers special bolstered and colored leather seats and door cards in black with blue inserts ('Deep Blue'). The front buckets are in overall very good order, despite some minor blemishes on the driver's side bolsters due to enjoyment. The instrument panel and inner door panels are in very good order. Other interior features include a factory infotainment system with CD player, four or six-speakers, amplifier, and CD-changer options and what were initially Viggen-specific motorized and heated leather seats with the Viggen delta logo embossed in the backrest. Saab fans take note and move fast on this one; we predict it will not lurk long with fewer than 23,000 miles on the clock and considering the careful life this car has led.
