UNKNOWN CAR MONTH >>> SAAB 99 TURBO
SAAB 99 Turbo. In rally guise the engine produced 240 horsepower (in 1978!) and was among the best when it competed. In the hands of two of Swedish rallying greats Per Eklund and Stig Blomqvist, the 99 scored various wins including the first win by a turbocharged car at the 1979 Swedish Rally. To say that this was the forefather of rallying legends like the Evo and WRX wouldn’t be a stretch.
