Those who know Saabs will appreciate that any car that has been tweaked by Abbott Racing Motorsport is something a little special. This is one such Saab. Starting life in 1993 (right at the end of the original 900 model's production run) as a low pressure turbo (LPT) 900 S , it was modified by Abbot Racing with a T7 upgrade prior to its first sale ‑ with just nine miles on its clock. The T7 kit included Abbott's 'Chargecooler', intercooler, a stiffer spring in the wastegate, and a reprogrammed ECU, giving 175bhp (instead of the standard 145bhp), no turbo lag, and no compromise in drivability. There were four previous owners ‑ one being a Saab enthusiast who had it for 17 years followed by a marque specialist ‑ before the current vendor, who acquired it in 2016. Under his custodianship, the car has had new headlining, clutch, radiator and some light restoration and welding to the offside front wing, plus refurbished three‑spoke alloy wheels. New drive belts and ball joints are also recent additions. The history folder contains most MoTs back to 1996, which confirm the current mileage of 149,000 miles, as well as a range of invoices, with the bulk from 2016 onwards. These include servicing every year from 2016 to 2020. There's also a bodywork and paint accident repair certificate for front end damage dating from 1998, as well as the Saab leather owner's pack. This contains the quick reference guide, owner's manual, fully stamped‑up service book ‑ showing the most recent service during November 2020 at 148,190 miles ‑ and other Saab literature. In addition, there's an Abbott Racing Motorsport booklet detailing the T7 upgrade and an Abbott card confirming the conversion in August 1993 at nine miles. Spare keys are also included. Exterior and interior condition is very good, making this a fine example of its type with, of course, its desirable Abbott tuning mods (and a discreet badge on the rear hatch to let other enthusiasts know that this is more than just a stock 900 S LPT).
