Customized Saab Sonett III

Here's a customized Saab Sonett III from Germany. As far as I can understand, this car was once a yellow Sonett belonging to a US soldier stationed in Germany. But one night the car was vandalized. The car was badly damaged with many cracks in the fiber glass body. Heartbroken the soldier sold the Sonett to a used car salesman, but the salesman just let the car deteriorate. It was further vandalized when the front and read windows were smashed in. And now the Sonett was parked outside in the rain and slowly dying.

But this story has a happy ending. The car was then bought by a young man who wanted to build his very own sports car, and the Sonett was a perfect starting point. And so the work began...

The car now has a rear mounted turbo engine from a Saab 900. It is rear wheel drive and as you can see from the pictures the rear is completely redesigned.
