Saab 92

The Saab 92 design was very aerodynamic for its time, and the cW value was 0.30. The entire body was stamped out of one piece of sheet metal and then cut to accommodate doors and windows.

The engine was a transversely mounted, water-cooled two-cylinder, two-stroke 764 cc, 25 hp (19 kW) thermosiphon engine based on a DKW design, giving a top speed of 105 kilometers per hour (65 mph). The transmission had three gears, the first unsynchronized. In order to overcome the problems of oil starvation during overrun (engine braking) for the two-stroke engine, a freewheel device was fitted. The suspension was by torsion bars.

Only 700 1950 models were made. In 1951, the German VDO instruments were replaced by American Stewart-Warner components.
