The SAAB Sonett gets its name not from the poetic form (spelled sonnet), but from the Swedish phrase Så nätt den är which translates roughly to “how neat it is.” It is the perfect name
for the wacky glassfiber bodied two-seater powered by two-stroke or V4
engines built in Trollhättan, particularly one with an assortment of custom accoutrements. Find this 1973 SAAB Sonett III offered for $2,900 in Lincoln, NE via craigslist. Tip from Andy L.
Tipper Andy gets it right when he wrote in his email: I am just going to leave this here. This is one custom Battlestar Galactica Viper inspired SAAB with precious few details from the seller. Is that a blower under the louvered hood scoop? How many mis-angled headlamps do you need in a car anyway? If the first one doesn’t blind oncoming traffic, I’m sure the sixth will. Take that you Cylon bastards…ahhhHH, they are too shiny, I’m being blinded by the reflections of my own lights…wait…what were we talking about?
The inside of the Sonett looks nothing like a Viper attack fighter, but I would totally rock one of those pharaoh’s head style helmets at all times while driving this thing. The 1.7 liter Ford Taunus sourced V4 engine would have been good for 65 horsepower from the factory.
