In 1972, SEAB decided to refurbish the Arara model. Without a facelift since 1966 (some small changes in the engine to make it more economical) they presented the Brazilian Market with a brand new visual, body, and some major changes to the i4SEAB57 engine. Now we have 3 different variants and one Special Edition, come along to this post to know more.
2.5m wheelbase cars, 1600cc and 1800cc engines (1600E; 1800E and 1800S) that were used in the previous Arara with some little changes. The ‘E’ letter stands for ‘Economical’ and the ‘S’ for Sport.
Longitudinal front-engine, RWD, and manual transmission in all variants. Ladder chassis made of steel and steel panels as well.
Comparing to the old version now you have leg room for the back occupants. This variant come with the '1600E' (77HP and 112nm of torque) engine variant or the '1800E'. Available in the 'Brasilia Yellow' and 'Turquesa Aquarius' colors. Starting price at ₢$9700
The wagon version of Arara focused on the small family business that just wants a big economical car to make medium trips. It has the ‘1800E’ (87HP and 127nm of torque) variant to make it easy to carry luggage without losing performance. But if you want you can choose the cheaper version (1600E). Available in the same colors as the Especial version. Starting price at ₢$9810
The Premium Compact Sedan for the Brazilian businessman who wants some comfort, but nothing as big and old as the Amazonas. With so much comfort the car becomes heavier, so SEAB decided to put the same engine as the Familia version to not lose performance. 'Celosia Claro' and 'Celosia Escuro' colors. Available at the Starting price of ₢$13300
The first coupe version is light sport one. It's no up to the buyers to choose the 1600E variant on this one, instead you can only have one: the 1800S (107HP and 141nm of torque).
This engine variant helps the Arara to reach 181km/h and do a 0 - 100 in 10s. SEAB reworked the suspension made it harder, so the S/R can do some cornering easier. And of course, it has an integral disc brakes system. The ‘Vermelho Nascente’ is the only color you can choose for this variant.
Starting price at ₢$13500
Arara SS/R (Limited Edition)
If the performance numbers of the S/R version didn't catch you up, SEAB announced an ultimate Sport variant, and it is breathtaking.
They take the i6SEAB57 engine from the old Amazonas, update it, and put it in the Arara S/R. But it doesn’t end there, they have gone far.
The ‘2200S’ is a total updated engine with a little performance tune and now it’s capable of doing 133HP and 180nm of torque. The suspension again has been reworked and the cornering in a 20m radius is 1.01g allied with some big alloy wheels and sport tires gave the SS/R an incredible performance numbers.
The changes are phenomenal. Now you can have 195km/h of top speed and a 0 - 100 in 8.7s.
Of course, it isn’t a mass-production car, you can only order this version.
The CEO of SEAB said if this variant becomes an extremely desirable car, they will change the way of selling it.
SS/R Version is available only in ‘Verde Igarapé’ color and you can order for ₢$17600
