    Trollhättan, Sweden: Saab is celebrating the first anniversary of its independence by launching an exclusive Independence Edition of its 9-3 Convertible. Just 366 examples will be produced, one for each day during the first year and one extra for the start of a second year.

    Unveiled at Saab’s assembly plant in Trollhättan as part of a day of celebration, the Independence Edition features a unique, Amber Orange metallic paint finish. It is based on top-of-the-line Griffin Aero specification and includes a limited edition number etched into the rear side windows.

    The Independence Edition is further distinguished by:

    • Five spoke, 18-inch alloy wheels with a satin chrome/black finish
    • Orange trimmed beige sports leather seats and glovebox
    • Carbon-fiber look leather finish for the instrument panel, handbrake, gearshift molding and door handles
    • Driver ‘welcome’ message in instrument display, unique turbo boost gauge
    • Orange stitched sports leather steering wheel and carpet mats with grey piping

    The powertrain choice comprises a 180 hp, 1.9-liter two-stage turbo diesel; a 220 hp, 2.0-liter gasoline turbo with direct injection and variable valve timing, and a Biopower version able to run on any combination of gasoline or E85 fuel. All engines are available with six-speed automatic or manual transmissions.

    The Independence Edition follows a successful tradition of special Saab Convertible models launched at springtime. This year also marks the 25th anniversary of the start of sales for the first Saab Convertible.

      That would be an awesome color for the sedan and wagon.
