If you’d like to be the one to own a brand new Saab that’s also the last of its kind, then we’ve got some really good news for you. NEVS is planning on auctioning off a five-year old car, which also happens to be unused.
The model is a 9-3 Aero Turbo sedan, and you’ll be able to see it on display at NEVS in Trollhattan during the Saab Car Museum festival June 7-9. The auction will take place later this year.
As some of you might recall, Saab halted production at its plant back in 2011. However, starting in December of 2013, NEVS re-launched production of the 9-3 Aero Sedan with a petrol engine.
This final batch of Saabs was manufactured in the original factory, using original parts sourced from roughly 400 suppliers. During a two year period (2013-2014), NEVS built just 420 cars, including the model you’ll soon be able to bid on – starting price and terms of sale to be published at a later date.
Here’s what you need to know about the car: For starters, it was built in 2014 and features a silver exterior. Power comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engine, producing 220 PS (217 HP) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Also available is a 6-speed automatic transmission. By the way, the engine has just 3 miles (5 km) on the clock, so calling it “unused” is by no means any sort of stretch.
Right now though, there’s nothing to do but wait for NEVS to publish an official ad for the car (with a full specs sheet and image gallery), so that potential buyers can see what they’re getting.
