Description

Sonoma Classic Motorcars is proud to present the 1989 Mercedes AEG Sauber C9 Race Car. In 1986 Sauber Motorsport AG was assigned by Mercedes to develop and maintain a sports car for the upcoming world championship, using a newly developed Mercedes engine. Sauber-Mercedes engine manufacturer Heini Mader Racing Components SA reworked the 5-litre engine and loaded it up using two KKK turbochargers, making the motor reliably able to produce 700bhp during a 24 hour race. With an increase of boost pressure, even 930bhp could be achieved for short periods.
The main sponsor of the campaign was Mercedes’ subsidiary AEG. Accordingly, the Sauber Group C livery was designed in the style of a multi-layered circuit board, finished in a dark blue colour scheme with AEG branding on the front, rear and side panels of the car, such as the example offered today.
In 1989 a Sauber C9 won the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans, with further placings in Second and Fifth, ultimately
winning the world championship in that year with a total of 7 wins in 8 rounds.
After winning the world championship in 1989 Sauber Motorsport AG decided to keep a single car for its own museum, uniquely finished in its original AEG livery of the 1988 season. This is that example, the only one to still wear its original factory livery from
new.
The Sauber C9 presented here was displayed in the Mercedes Sauber museum for over 20 years until purchased by current owner in 2010.
