Auction house Bilweb has announced the sale of the 2014 Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo4, officially the last vehicle to be assembled under the Saab brand. For the Swedish sedan paid 465,000 Swedish kronor (3.07 million rubles).
- The sedan's mileage is only 70 kilometers. The car was supposed to be used for a crash test, but due to funding difficulties, it was never carried out. As a result, the car stood for five years in the workshop of the plant in Trollhättan.
The latest Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo4 is equipped with a 220 horsepower two-liter gasoline turbo engine. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
- Saab went bankrupt in 2011, and two years later the company was bought by the Swedish-Chinese holding NEVS. 420 Saab 9-3 sedans were produced in two years, after which Saab AB revoked the trademark approval due to the financial difficulties of the new owner.
In the summer of 2019, the NEVS consortium, thanks to new investors, launched the production of the NEVS 93 model in Tianjin, China. In fact, this is the same Saab 9-3 sedan, but equipped with an electric power plant.
