Saab sells its test cars online


All Saab enthusiasts should be happy now that the carmaker made a really interesting announcement. Apparently KVD Kvarndammen auction house is actually organizing an online sale for Saab cars. All the auctioned cars used to belong to the defunct automaker. To be more precise, 78 units will be offered for auction and around half of them will be impossible to register, just because these were used by Saab as test vehicles. Part of the test cars were part of the 9-5 series, but Saab enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to bid on a 9-3 Aero sedan and 5 GM-built 9.4X crossovers, so that everyone is satisfied. There are 24 units of the 9.4X model that can in fact be registered in Sweden and not only. The winners of the auction will be capable of registering them anywhere. They can do this, but only after paying a 10 % custom fee, 25 % of VAT and 3.000 Swedish Crowns in administrative fees that cost EUR360. The carmaker has established a starting price of EUR43.230 and all taxes mentioned will add to this price. So far, the highest bid placed is only EUR21.000. One of the models is a 2012 Saab 9-3X which can be bought for EUR33.620, but the highest bid so far is EUR23.400. There is also a 9.5 Saab equipped with a 2.9-liter diesel engine capable of generating 245 horsepower. The price for this car was established at EUR30.000, but the highest bid received EUR7.000. Moving on, at the auction we can also find 7 of the 30 9-5 estates built and another 37 of the 54 9-5 sedans finished in 2012. The bad news is that none of the 9-5 series models can be registered. The auction closes on April 3rd, so in case you are an enthusiast will some money in your pocket, do not waste precious time and place your bid. Source: kvd
