The very last Saab 9-3 Aero Turbo4 built is up for sale courtesy of National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS), the company that famously bought Saab.
A listing on Bilwed Auctions indicates that this Saab was set aside for crash testing but that no such testing was ever done. It is one of just 420 examples built and only has 41 miles (66 km) under its belt, most apparent accrued as it was being driven around the company’s hold production plant in Trollhattan, Sweden for official photos and videos.
If this was the last ever vehicle produced by a company like Mercedes-Benz, for example, it would inevitably sell for a jaw-dropping sum. Not the case here. In fact, the listing says the car has been valued at between 350,000 Swedish Krona (US$35,294) and 450,000 Krona (US$45,378).
“The last soap. Taste those words. How does it feel? For many, it is sad words, but they are also a little tickling. A 9-3 Aero Turbo 4 made in 2014 in Trollhättan with the 2-liter machine on 220 horses”, the listing humorously reads. “It has rolled its first mile on the old test track for some photography occasions. A new Saab, with everything it entails. This is your chance. Take it. It won’t come back.”
Sitting beneath the identifiable Saab skin is an Ecotec 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 217 hp and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque.
Autocar reports that all funds raised from the sale will be donated to the Sustainable Mobility Scholarship run by NEVS at Sweden’s University West.
