    Saab's dream remnants for sale

    Saab's bankruptcy to get money, and some of this work is to sell off the assets that can bring in money to the bankruptcy estate. Now we turn our attention to the more exclusive part of vehicle production.

    In Wallhamn on Tjörn, Saab's former export port, are 68 cars that bankruptcy trustees handed over to the auction company Kvarndammen to be auctioned online. 15 of them were shown to the press yesterday, the rest of the car fleet learns to stand covered with snow in a pasture.

    - We have seen a great interest in cars. Both nationally and internationally, our website with Saab auctions have already had 100 000 visitors, says Day Thyselius from Kvarndammen.

    Among the cars are some who just built in a few specimens, a part that was produced but never reached the market and many who run the test cars. But no one has been privately owned. And with no warranty of any kind, all cars are sold as-is. Most are not executable, ie that they can run, but red tape puts an end to trips on the road. For example, not a single one of the 18 NEW 9-5 SportCombi being auctioned be type-inspected and therefore they will not be approved for the Swedish roads.

    Among the titbits are a Skyblue 9-3 Sport Combi, one of three in the world. And the 9-3 Convertible Independence Edition, with chassis number 001, built in 2011 to celebrate Saab's first year as an independent car manufacturer. And 10 or so 9-4X, Mexico-manufactured as been transported to Sweden by the United States.

    Next weekend, the public has the opportunity to review the cars closer, and the weekend December 15 to 16 auctions going into the final sprint.

    And so it was Victor Muller 9-5 NEW. A black beauty with a V6 of 300 horses under the hood, automatic transmission and with a certain routine from the highways between Holland and Trollhättan. But then it's the big wallet in force, the list price is 420 000.And at an auction is the further risk that the price slips up a few more snap.

    Peter was at the SOC in Ohio a few years ago and did a presentation about the Mille Miglia. Very funny and knowledgeable guy. Can you imagine having a job like that? That would be so awesome.
