New Release. Saab 900 Turbo 1984 from Ottomobile

For some it is one of the most expendable minor matters in the world, others are proud of it. Collecting automobile miniatures may be appealing, especially if you specialize in rare things. Saab is such a rarity, even in its lifetime, and now even more so. The brand has its characteristics, it polarizes. And the focus is on the Saab 900 Turbo, which is polarizing like no other vehicle from Trollhättan.

Very attractive, with a small flaw executed miniature

You love him or you reject him, which is not only due to his extraordinary design. The classic 900 is available as 1: 18 miniature from Ottomobile. Or, more precisely, again. Because the French from Josselin in Brittany have already brought two predecessors on the market. 2016 a red 900 Turbo, a year later a black one. Both also as attractive coupes, and the assumption is obvious that at least in the approach old tools and drawings were used again to create a derivative. The first two models have long been sold out and are traded on the known platforms at twice or triple the former price.

Saab 900 Turbo 1984

A Saab miniature as a speculative object? Absolutely, because the manufacturer Ottomobile limits its quantities consistently and specializes for years in the niches, which not every other offerer may serve. The pre-order phase for the Saab 900 Turbo is up and running until the 1. September. The Grad-Schnautzer coupe from the production year 1984 is visually exciting and available in the usual scale 1: 18. Of course, the edition is limited as already with its predecessors, 999 pieces go on sale.

There is still a small damper to report. As successful as the combination of a scarab green body and the beige interior may be - Saab did not offer it in 1984. The very popular color came into the program a few years later. A fact that will not detract from the attractiveness of the new publication and may even do the opposite. After all, who has a model car in their showcase that the manufacturer has never had?

  • DELICIOUS ! ! !

    I'm jealous of everyone and everything that has or already again an 900, 900 II or 9-3 I in the scale 1: 1.
    Especially on the coupes. This mix of Nordic sober elegance and utility is simply unique.
    A really great car ...

    I'm curious about the announced article about the red Frankfurter and the blogger “Silberpfeil”.

  • I wrote to Otto last week about the “wrong” color, but unfortunately I haven't received an answer to this day. Too bad. Silver with red leather would have been awesome and more appropriate. Oh well. Maybe they'll do it like they did with the oblique schnauzer before and bring out a different color variant almost 2 years later ...

  • The proportions don't seem to be quite right, however, if I look at the rear side, the taillights seem to be very oversized compared to the width of the vehicle ... or are the pictures so deceiving?
    But as a miniature already very handsome ... of course, the 1:18 scale should still be present in all points!
    In this sense “SEE YOU - - HAVE FUN IN THE SUN WITH SAAB-CARS ´´

  • Thanks for the info, just ordered 😉
