Vehicle Overview

One owner, clean carfax, west coast, dealer maintained, Limited Edition Lightning Blue Viggen!
This may be one of the last low mileage Viggen's available. Look at the outstanding condition of this low mileage, very rare and collectible, 1999 Lightning Blue Viggen for $16660 that was previously sold by Gary Small Saab-Portland, Oregon. The previous owner was so fussy with this sporty car he installed 3M clear film on the headlamps and fog lights to protect them. The U.S. was the largest market with only 420 Lightning Blue copies sold, other parts of the world only got a few dozen 1999 models. Serious Saab fans know that the Swedish brand builds more than just cars. They also build some of the most sophisticated aircraft in the world. So when it came time to name their new, hopped-up version of the 9-3 coupe, they chose the name of one of their most famous fighter jets, the Viggen. In English, the word Viggen means thunderbolt. And to drivers used to the standard Saab 9-3, this new Viggen hits like a bolt out of the blue!
And that said, we're sure it's no coincidence that the Saab 9-3 Viggen Coupe came clothed in an eye-popping color dubbed, appropriately enough, Lightning Blue.

But the Viggen's real charge is found under its electric skin, in the form of a highly modified 4 cylinder powerplant. Using the current EcoPower 2.3 liter engine found in the 9-5 as their base, Viggen engineers added an industrial strength Mitsubishi turbocharger capable of boosting pressure to 20 psi. Freer breathing intake runners and a new exhaust system also aid the air-hungry turbo.
The results are nothing less than stunning-225 horsepower and a neck-snapping 252 pound-feet of torque! That's just 6 pound-feet less than Porsche's six cylinder powered 911. Now that much torque in a front driver can be a real handful. So to keep things from...
