The Saab 9-5 sports suit by Michèl Annink has achieved a certain reputation in Sweden. It is the first new generation sports car to receive 2013 roadworthiness approval in November in Sweden.
A long and dramatic story, which went through several media and demanded a lot of patience from all involved. Meanwhile, the 9-5 was again a guest in Germany. The rare combination with the VIN 00017 has now undergone an optical upgrade. at Saab Service Kiel became the middle variant Vector an Aero. The top version of the series has more sporting presence, and the complete conversion shows what's possible.
The Modifcations list: Aero front bumper, Aero exhaust system, Aero interior trim, Aero lettering. Add a "Brushed aluminum dashboard" and the original Aero steering wheel. Still lacking, if I look at the pictures like this, the Aero pedals in aluminum, but they will certainly come to that. The result looks great.
Okay, purists may say that there has never been an 1.6 T in the Aero Trim ex factory and would not have existed. And probably that you should leave such a rare vehicle in the original. I think that's allowed, which is fun. And if at some point, in many years, the original state is desired, then a "downgrade" without a problem is feasible.
What is missing to complete happiness, these are the very rare 19 "Edge rims. Those are to be retrofitted in the summer, then the optics arrived to 100% on Aero level.
Michèl Annink's 9-5 sports suit will most likely be at our "Pilots Wanted 2014" event in June. The official registration is not yet possible, we are working hard on the subtleties of the program. Already in advance, Saab 9-5 NG have confirmed drivers from Scandinavia and Germany and booked accommodation in Kiel. Updates to "Pilots Wanted 2014" are coming in the next few days.
