#178 of 258 Produced

The Sonett II was SAAB's first production sports car. It was manufactured in Trollhattan, Sweden beginning in 1966. It was powered by the two stroke, three cylinder, 841 cc engine used in the Monte Carlo, including three single barrel Solex carburetors. The Sonett II was designed as a race car and competed successfully against Austin Healy Sprites and Triumph Spitfires in SCCA races of the period. Unfortunately, since the 500 minimum production figure was not met, Sonett II's were ultimately disqualified.

The Sonett II represents the culmination of SAAB's two stroke engine technology in a production vehicle. However, with the introduction of US emission control standards in the late 1960's, the 'stroker' engine was replaced by a Ford V-4 four stroke engine in late 1967. The Sonett II V-4 and the later Sonett III with a similar engine were produced through 1974. A total of 10,219 Sonetts were produced.

Manufactred in Trollhattan, Sweden, beginning in 1966, the Sonett II was SAAB's first production sports car. Featuring a two-stroke, three cylinder, 841 cc, three single barrel Solex carburetors Monte Carlo engine, the Sonett II was designed as a race car and competed successfully against Austin Healey Sprites and Triumph Spitfires in Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) races of the period. Unfortunately, since the 500 minimum production figure was not met, Sonett II's were ultimately disqualified. The two stroke engine was discontinued in the late 1960's due to US emission control standards.
