JL Racing, the Canadian racing team who were using Saabs for a few recent seasons, are moving on to a RWD maker (Hyundai, I think) and consequently, are now offering their Saab racing cars up for sale.
I’m not sure that anyone here would be interesting in a couple of 9-3 racers, but I thought I’d post this up on site anyway, if only for the curiosity factor.
There’s one complete car that’s ready to race, and one rolling chassis as well as a third body.
The three ‘vehicles’ are currently being offered at $40,000 for the full package, which actually sounds pretty decent.
Some specs on the bodies:
