Default RARE 2000 Lightning Blue Viggen Convertible



Ultra-Rare 2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen Convertible

There were only 47 of these imported into the United States for sale in the coveted Lightning Blue exterior with the blue and black leather interior. This was Saab's Flagship car for the year 2000, and still looks the part!

Fully loaded convertible!
- 2.3L High Output Turbo
- 5-speed Manual
- 86,000 Miles
- 2-Tone Leather Interior
- Power Everything
- Heated Seats
- Security System
- Keyless Entry
- AM/FM/CD w/ Premium Sound
- Automatic Climate Control
- Tinted Windows
- Night Panel
- Cruise Control
- Optional Windscreen
- Custom Clear Corner Markers
- Genuine Saab Cold Air Intake

Car comes with a set of very hard to find "Alternating 6-Spoke" 17" rims fitted with 215/45ZR17 Z-rated tires that are just over a year old. I'm also including a set of Saab 3-spoke 16" rims with 2-year-old winter tires on them. This car has been kept in my garage and has only seen 3 days of winter in the 2.5 years I've owned it. Never had a single mechanical problem, oil changed religiously every 4,000 miles with Mobil 1 or Amsoil Full Synthetic 5W/30.

This car is a heck of a fun vehicle to drive and fantastically comfortable for long-distances due to one of the best seats ever designed. It's not perfect, there are a few small (and I do mean SMALL) blemishes in the paint and scratches on the bottom of the front bumper due to the factory-lowered suspension. The price of this collector car has been lowered to reflect these imperfections.

Full specifications here: http://www.saabnet.com/tsn/models/2000/ts93v.html

PM me for more pictures or questions, or email me here for faster response.







Right after the windows were tinted, before removing the "silly putty" 5-spoke Viggen rims

What happened to the Viggen spoiler?

And what is your asking price?

The "Viggen Spoiler" you're referring to is I assume this one:


That only appears on the hatchback model, the convertible had a lower-profile spoiler to accommodate the change in the profile of the car and the way wind moves over a convertible when the top is folded down.

Asking price is $16,500. I was in negotiations with a potential buyer who's financing fell through, I let him talk me down to $15,500 as is due to a few blemishes in the paint, etc. So.. revised asking price is $15,500. I am a little flexible on that but not very.

The Viggen spoiler for convertibles was more arched and a little taller, as can be seen here:



It does look like yours is the flat version from a standard 9-3 convertible, but that may just be the angle of the photos.
