335bhp 900 Turbo

Subtlety is the key with this '87 Saab 900. From the outside, it appears to be just a well-specced Turbo Cabrio, featuring the European aero kit and a gentle drop over some colour-coded 18" rims. But under the bonnet resides a heavily tinkered-with engine: a 2.0-litre 16v B202 with a 0.040 overbore and forged Mahle pistons, Megasquirt standalone management, knock detection, wasted-spark ignition, Garrett T3/T4 hybrid turbo, ceramic exhaust manifold, Siemens 60 lb/hr injectors, Precision front-mount intercooler with 2.5" aluminium piping, 2.3-litre head and 2.1-litre intake manifold, 900S intake cam, '85 900T exhaust cam, Magnaflow 3" cat-back exhaust and lots more besides. Surprised? Yes, I expect most people are.
