A ‘time warp’ classic 1987 Saab 900 Turbo went to auction with just 246 miles on the clock and sold for £120,000 | The Sun

A CLASSIC Saab has fetched an incredible price at auction, but when you learn its history it all makes sense.

The Saab is a 1987 900 Turbo, but it's even rarer than usual because it's also the drop-top convertible model.

It sold at auction with Bring A Trailer for an unbelievable $145,000 in the US – or around £120,000 here in Britain.

It looks great in 'Cherry Red' paint and the Saab is in such good general condition it looks like it did when it rolled out of the factory in '87.

That's partly to do with its incredible mileage – it has covered just 246 miles since it was built.

Of course, it's also been very well looked after, which shows in its stunning interior.
