  • For sale: Victor Muller's 2010 Saab 9-5 Aero



    A late model Saab 9-5 is not that unique but this one has an interesting history. It is one of the earliest 9-5 that came of the production line and is the Saab 9-5 Victor Muller picked up at Saab ANA in Trollhattan. It was actually part of the test fleet and number 42 off the production line.

    A picture was taken with him and Jan Åke Jonsson just outside the factory about 2 years ago. He drove the car to the Netherlands together with his sons.

    Proud new owner: Victor Muller takes delivery of a new Saab, just 24 hours after completing the purchase of Saab Automobile AB

    Outside Saab Automobile´s factory in Trollhättan, Sweden, Muller, CEO of Spyker Cars was handed the keys to a top-of-the-line Saab 9-5 sedan by Saab Automobile CEO Jan Åke Jonsson. It is part of an all-new 9-5 product range which will go on sale later this year.

    “I am delighted to take delivery of this stunning new car ahead of our customer orders," said Muller, CEO of Spyker Cars NV, which yesterday completed the acquisition of Saab Automobile AB from General Motors. “The 9-5 will be the first of three exciting new Saab cars which we plan to launch in the next 16 months"

    Muller´s car, powered by a 300 hp 2.8L V6, with all-wheel-drive, adaptive chassis control, a head-up information display, a lane departure warning camera and surround sound hi-fi, will spearhead the most sophisticated model range Saab has ever produced.

    But we step into the lobby of our very 1970s-feeling Marriott hotel at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport to meet our collaborator on this stealth mission, the Spyker Saab CEO, Victor Muller. Joking, sort of, our host looks at us and says, “Crazy isn’t it? To get the first 9-5, I had to go and buy the company.”

    Saab’s new Dutch owner Victor Muller is an adamant, outspoken kind of car guy. Exemplifying this sometimes impulsiveness, while we were talking with him near the airport he handed us the key fob to his pre-production 2011 Saab 9-5, and said we could have a spin in it so long as he was our constant passenger.

      Victor owns an Audi S8. He was asked if he was going to continue to drive a Saab after the bankruptcy in a Dutch interview. He mentioned he may go back to the S8 because he probably couldn't stand looking at a Saab every day and be reminded of the fact it may have been his fault the company was not saved.

      From TTELA:

      This morning was Jens Ismunden owner Victor Muller 9-5, when a Dutchman could not pay ...

      - I am passionate about Saab, and 9-5 is a fantastic car. Mom bought two last week, says Jens.

      - As previously reported, has TTELA Victor Muller's Saab 9-5 Aero has been for sale at a car salesman in Uppsala. In today's paper told us that it purchased from a Dutchman. It was true, until this morning.

      - I had made up with Bivia that I would get the car if the deal with the Dutchman would not go through. And when the Dutchman had not paid today, so was my car, says Jens Ismunden.

      Saab in the blood

      He is a 35-year-old Saab enthusiast who lives in Ljunghusen, and thus one of the youngest members of the Saab-Scania club. But Saab-interest he has in the blood.

      - I grew up in Jämtland. Dad rallying with Saab V4 on the northern gravel roads.

      The mother is also Saab saved, and, like his son managed to get their hands on some of the last Saab 9-5, which rolled out of Stallbacka plant.

      - I wanted a 9-5 Aero, then it was a coincidence that it was Victor Muller's car. I recognized the registration number, says Jens Ismunden, who think it is remarkable that not Muller himself bought the car.

      - And a bit funny that it was a Dutchman who could not pay ...

      But the most important for Jens Ismunden is not that he can make another Saab next to the other Saab were in the garage.

      - I am passionate about the brand, and wept when the bankruptcy announcement came. I really hope that Saab will survive and will produce more cars.

      Collectors

      Jorgen Trued at the Saab site Saab United says it is now becoming difficult to get hold of the new Saab 9-5. This model was produced in 10 000 copies, equal amount as the Saab Sonett.

      - 9-5 clearly have value to collectors, especially Aero models which are "top of the line." I have bought one, and last week bought Lars Carlstrom a (former spokesperson for the Antonov, ed's note.). There are only a handful remain.

      9-5: lights sold in slightly different ways. GMAC, GM's leasing companies, they sell cars that were in the factory through dealers and shares the profits with the administrators. You can also keep an eye on private ads and bankruptcy sell-offs, says Jörgen Trued.

      - In the days before releasing Kvarndammen the blue 9-5: a, which was parked outside the Café Opera where Spyker's purchase of Saab presented.

      Earlier Saab CEO Jan-Ake Jonsson, Saab is supposed to be for sale, of a car dealer in Tingsryd.
