Saab Sonett III

Saturday 8 August 2009
The 1970 redesign of the Sonett V4, named the Sonett III, was initially undertaken by Sergio Coggiola but then altered by Gunnar A. Sjögren to fit the existing chassis without expensive manufacturing line changes. A hinged rear window glass replaced the Sonett II/V4 rear compartment hatch door. With the mandate for a "bulge-less" hood, the engine compartment opening evolved into a small front popup panel, resulting in more limited access than in the Sonett V4. Extensive engine work required the removal of the entire front hood section.
The replica comes out of Universal Hobbies Saab collection.
