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 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
