In a decade, a lot can change. A good example of the upheavals is the miniature Saab Turbo X from DNA Collectibles, which will be released in November. With the 2019 model year, the Swedes delivered the Turbo X limited to 2008 units. An image carrier - and at the same time the first all-wheel drive Saab in series.
At least if you take the production site Trollhättan as a benchmark. Previously there was the 9-7X, which is counted only conditionally because of its American birth. The Saab comes from a time when large-volume engines were not frowned upon yet. The V6 in its relatively compact body exerts a very special appeal. A sonorous sound, plus the feeling of always having enough power on call, a split-second reacting four-wheel drive, which set standards in his day. What more do you want?
Saab Turbo X from DNA Collectibles
I liked my Turbo X, although he was quite thirsty. But the driving pleasure made up more than that, it was probably not a conservation of resources. Actually the opposite, and politically correct in any case. But the summers were not that extreme yet, and the bad conscience did not always go with them. In homage to a time that is disappearing more and more, DNA Collectibles brings a miniature of the Saab Turbo X in 1: 18 scale. At least, after delivery, it is guaranteed emission-free, and it remains so.
The manufacturer has chosen in his choice for the sedan, which is due to their lower weight in the original driving more active than the station wagon. First pictures of the prototype show some room for improvement. The accents on the radiator grille and around the fog lights are still shiny and thus unfortunately correspond to the regular 9-3. In the TX, this design elements were present in a matte gray, the manufacturer promises to make some changes before the series.
The Pre-order phase for the Saab Turbo X sedan is opened. The delivery of the Resin model will start in November 2019. A particularly good news for all customers is that DNA Collectibles is now shipping from the EU. In the first miniatures, the shipping was still from Hong Kong, a not quite so successful decision as taxes and duties were added. The manufacturer has now corrected this, in the interests of customer friendliness, for its EU customers.
