Classic Car

The Sonett was an unusual addition to the Saab line-up. The Bjorn Karlstrom-penned two-seater coupé was powered initially by the 96’s two-stroke but in 1967 received Ford’s unlovely V4 power for increased performance. The Sonett II made way for the heavily-revised, Sergio Coggiola-styled Sonett III in 1970. The new car retained the same centre section and, despite a more powerful 1.7-litre V4, it delivered near identical performance due to its extra heft. The Sonett was phased out in 1974, having failed to find favour in the lucrative Stateside market.
