Saab Sonett No 4
I was going to wait until I had a copy of this book to review, but it seems so important and rare that I thought it’d be wise to get this up on the site as soon as possible.

Saab Sonett No 4 is a new publication covering the history of chassis #4, the Saab Sonett Super Sport (or Sonett 1) that legend had as being written off some years ago. As I haven’t read this book yet, I’ll let the blurb from Elkparts tell the story:
The Saab Sonett Super Sport was the car designed and built by a team of engineers, led by Rolf Mellde, with the aim to win the important Swedish ‘Race to the Midnight Sun’. The ambitious plan was conducted in secret and announced to Saab’s board only when the prototype was running.
Only six Saab Sonett Super Sports, aka Saab 94, were built in 1956 before the project was pulled overnight. During the last 50 years the whereabouts of five of the six original Sonetts was known, but the story of Saab 94 Chassis number 4 has become the stuff of myth. Until now.
In Saab Sonett No.4 you can read the incredible story of this historically valuable Saab in this special limited edition book. This book is hardbound with 96 pages, 82 colour illustrations and a high quality, collectors embossed cover. (Book size 21.5 x 21.5cm.)
You may wish to note the following: This is a rare first edition printing that is limited to only 350 copies printed in English. Elkparts received a batch of 10 copies and sold them all on the first day! John informs me that he has just now received a further 25 copies, which are also expected to sell very quickly.
