The last Saab to leave the firm’s factory is going up for sale at auction.
The 9-3 Aero is in pristine condition and has just 40 miles on the clock. It’s spent a lot of time at the Saab Car Museum in Trollhattan, Sweden, and according to Bilweb, the majority of the car’s miles were covered on the test tract, as well as ‘in the production plant area’.
The car was built by NEVS, an electric car company that bought Saab’s assets in 2012 and began reproducing 9-3 Aero models from 2013 to 2014. Only 420 NEVS 9-3s were made in total, meaning the example up for sale is part of an exclusive fleet of vehicles.
Under the bonnet, the car features a 220bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged motor. It’s also finished in ‘Diamond Silver’ paintwork and has a two-tone leather interior along with an automatic gearbox as well.
Set to go under the hammer during an upcoming auction in Trollhatten, the silver Saab is estimated to fetch around 350-450,000 SEK (£28,948-£37,226). It had been given a top rating when it came to outright condition, scoring five out of five for mechanical, interior, exterior and general conditions.
The auction’s inventory was revealed in full yesterday (October 7th) and is due to end in November.
