This fully-specced, low-mileage 2012 Saab 9-3 Cabriolet is probably the ultimate gift for a fan of the, currently dormant, Swedish brand.
Mind you, it’s not just a range-topping Aero model with only 16,111 km (10,011 miles) under its belt, but also a unique specimen. You see, when the automaker officially went bust, this particular vehicle had not yet been built.
Back in 2011, Saab announced the 9-3 Griffin, which was essentially a mild facelift. The automaker also planned to build a Sky Blue Edition based on the 9-3 Griffin. Only three of those were built worldwide, one for each body style: Sedan, Combi (aka estate) and Cabriolet.
Remarkably, the 9-3 Cabriolet Aero Griffin Sky Blue Edition had not been completed during the bankruptcy, so when the assembly line stopped in 2011, the car was shipped to ANA Trollhattan AB to be finished by hand.
So there you have it: this 9-3 Cabriolet is not just a one-off and one of the last Saabs ever made, it’s also partially hand built! The seller says that all papers and certificates documenting the vehicle’s unusual manufacturing process came with the car.
It also comes with all possible options and packages, including the striking Sky Blue metallic paintwork, all the features of the Independent Edition, and all Hirsch Performance packages. The latter include the Hirsch sports suspension, Hirsch sports exhausts, Hirsch steering wheel and pedals, and 260 HP Hirsch engine tune.
Other features include 19-inch BBS alloys, leather seats, and Sky Blue Edition 001/001 stickers on the windows. As the photos can attest, the car looks as if it has just left the factory. There’s only one downside to this unique Saab 9-3 Cabriolet as far as we’re concerned: it has already been sold for a whopping €59,500 (approximately $66,500).
