1993 Saab 900 Aero S LPT Convertible


  • Very low mileage example
  • Excellent condition 
  • Full service history
  • One of the last original Saab 900’s produced


The Appeal

Known for their durability and now iconic status, the Sabb 900 was launched in 1978 and enjoyed a 15-year production run. Extremely well built, even over-engineered, with their aircraft inspired cabin and curved windscreen, the models post 1987 were even better, offering further refinement in a car with serious amounts of character. While the car was improved slightly after the facelift, the shape didn’t really change too much and for very good reason. 
With engines that have soldiered on beyond half a million miles far from uncommon – these beauties don’t just look the business; they are super reliable if well looked after. This is one of the later models to roll off the Saab production line before GM took over. A 2.0 litre LPT (Low Pressure Turbo) with a full-service history and a handful of careful owners in its past, it’s a gem of a car and you would be hard pushed to find one in the country with such low mileage today. 
Purchased in 2019 by the current owner and garaged throughout his ownership, it is now being sold to slim down the current

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
