High End Factory Specification
Exceptional Value


Appreciating Modern Classic/The Last Real Saab Turbo
First registered and pre delivery inspected by County Saab in Old Stratford
on 19-12-2006. This was a company demo for the first 5 months being sold onto
its first private owner a Mr Mitchel of Ayrshire in on 04-05-2007. A long
term Saab owners club member he kept the car for more than 10 years selling
it on some 10 years later on 21.11.07 to the second owner (Mr Bolton of
Edinburgh) an elderly gentleman and also a lifelong Saab enthusiast. He would
have kept the car however an issue with his hip forced him to replace with
another 9-5 with auto gearbox and I bought it direct from him.

This is the final run out model for the Saab 9-5 and as such is the last real
performance Saab. Its also the most powerful production model they produced,
this one with a high end factory specification and a winning color/trim scheme.
For Saab enthusiasts out there this should get your pulse racing.

Finding a low mileage manual Aero is difficult as they are superb machines and
tend to be coveted by their owners, the manual gearbox is well suited and
allows fuel consumption to be manipulated with 40 mpg figures easily
achieved when touring, which for such a high performance car is superb.
There is a cult band of followers for these cars, they were well made and
specced and they are now appreciating in value. This example has a great
turn of spec and an attractive combination of Blue and cream leathers.
Note : Still bears its original supplied dealer plates fron to rear and the
rear window decal.

The Aero Model
A superb flagship Aero model boasting a class leading spec and excellent
condition. The Aero is a fully equipped model with tweaks to handling and
performance and is engineered extremely well, developed over nearly 30
years Saab Turbo charging is highly acclaimed. The HOT models have a high
pressure turbocharger that exploits the max from the 2.3 4 cyl unit and
offers on tap power normally associated with V8 powered engines. 260 bhp
and all about mid range performance or the power to overtake quickly
and effectively by manipulation of the turbo. Fuel economy is excellent
with 35 to 40mpg possible on a longer run. The auto manual with optional
steering wheel change allows the considerable power to be exploited and the
fuel consumption to be manipulated.

2006/7 Model Year Changes
The most obvious difference to the 9-5 was its new front-end, it looks
longer though actually isn't. Inside the cabin there's been more mild
tinkering, a revised dashboard offering nicer-feeling switches and a slightly
more up market look than the old one. The seats are amazingly comfortable
and the 9-5's still a superb motorway muncher. A mild revision of suspension
setting, fractionally firmer edged and 260 bhp through the front wheels
rather effectively, from 2000-5500rpm there's an impressively linear wodge
of overtaking power to be mined, and here is a car that can truly murder a
straight. Excellent front wheel Swedish Winter tool.
