SAAB photo. Saab 9-5 II in Amber-Orange. Part II.

In January I have about one Saab 9-5 II in amber orange written and at the same time made a commitment to cars with eye-catching colors. Yes, the Saabs in Monte Carlo Yellow, Lime-Yellow or the eye-catching hues of the Saab 99 era have always done to me. That, however, once again comes to us an 9-5 II in the color of the anniversary cabriolet in front of the lens, so I did not expect.

The Amber-Orange Saab, whose whereabouts are unclear, still has an almost twin. Almost because the car shown here is a real prototype that differs in details. Unfortunately, the condition of the car is so pitiful that the camera was unable to capture important details. The Saab is painted differently. One side is in “Amber-Orange-gloss”, the other in “Amber-Orange-Matt”. A difference that you can only see due to the high level of pollution if you stand directly in front of the vehicle.

I had already written it: under Muller, Saab would have had more courage for color and extravagance. Perhaps Saab would have set a new trend here and “Amber-Orange-Matt” would have been the show. An interesting idea!

So completely by the hand this assumption is not to be pointed. Because before the matte black excess made its rounds in the scene, Saab wanted to deliver the 9-3 Turbo X in matte black livery and the first, internal copies were painted so. That was over 5 years ago. Unfortunately, or in retrospect, and thankfully, depending on the attitude, Saab has renounced this option.

Probably not good the story for the Saab will end with the test paint. Parts of the interior are missing, the vehicle is not complete. The status is not so clear, but the Saab will probably go to the recycler. Attempts to buy the car have failed so far. Friends are on the ball and try something as usual. We keep an eye on the topic.

  • A little more color would be really good, in the end there were a few approaches. Let's see how NEVS wants to do that.

  • Still one of the finest luxury sedans ever!
