New Release. Saab 9000 Aero 1995 from DNA Collectibles.

Quite a few Saab fans could have been waiting for this miniature. Finally a Saab 9000 comes in 1:18 scale. So far nothing has been found in the larger collector's dimension. The Swiss from DNA Collectibles have been filling a small, fine niche with limited models for some time. The legendary brand from Trollhättan is part of their portfolio, and the 9000 is the latest contribution.

Even the pictures of the prototype show attention to detail and a certain degree of maturity. As usual with the Aero, the famous sports seats are well hit, generations of Saab 9k pilots raved about it. The dashboard is also successful, the Saab has the large sound system, but smaller details still have to be finalized. The exterior design is also well done, and there are at most minor details that could be cause for complaint. But you have to look very carefully and have the original in front of the door.

The 9000 Aero, the top version of the 2nd 9k generation, is an asset for the Saab-savvy collector. Its design comes from the pen of Björn Envall. He modernized the somewhat chubby original version of the CS and gave the first big Saab more presence and stature. The front pushes itself like a wedge in the wind, a particularly popular body shape in the 90s. In contrast to this is the rear end, which Envall took away from the lightness of the original version. A plus in respectability was in the specifications, and Envall and his team met the requirements. The C-pillar is wide and appears indestructible at first glance. It is, too, because the security fanatics from Trollhättan had hidden a roll bar in it. Just in case, because you never know what's coming.

The rear end and the newly shaped tailgate are now more mature than the airy, light original model. The rear panel, which extends over the entire width of the vehicle, makes the Saab appear more stately than it actually is. A popular trick used by designers to give a vehicle more visual breadth.

 

The 9000 was Saab's first premium class entry and was an instant success. 503.087 pieces ran from the belts of the factory at Göta Älv, on April 28.04.1998, 2006 it was over. Björn Envall drew a possible successor with the name in XNUMX Aerospace Logistics, but at that point, sedan hatchbacks no longer had a chance at Saab. GM anticipated more opportunities in the market with notchback sedans.

The Pre-order phase for the 9000 Aero miniature is open. Delivery of the resin model is scheduled to start in June 2020. However, our experience shows that DNA Collectibles does not always meet delivery dates 100% and postpones them until the quality and details are correct. At the Turbo X model there was a delay that is in the collector's interest but also requires understanding.

preorder the limited miniature save 10%, shipping is from the European warehouse of the manufacturer. The customary value added tax is added to the price.

  • Just one comment, the brake discs seem to larger diameter to my eye ......

  • 9.3 Wolfgang,

    a SAAB room? I'm jealous ...

  • Yes, Herbert, the only alternative is to set up a “SAAB room”. The color of the miniatures does not matter.
    I did it and in addition to a showcase with currently 54 models in 1:43 and 3 in 1:18. The 9-4X in 1:18 has been ordered and I'm still pondering the 9000. Is it crazy or an addiction (says my wife) .. Then there are folders with articles about Saab and tons of brochures and materials of all kinds etc.
    So don't think about Herbert- buy and color the living room !!!

  • Already ordered! 😉

  • I have already seen on the website, I am considering to get it

  • I would really like one like that! Red, black leather upholstery and as an aero! Simply great!

  • One of my two 9k is not an aero, but it is exactly in this color combination. A truly grandiose sight that I can enjoy every day anew….
    The model is really very successful. I am sure that the shortcomings mentioned are eliminated.

  • My absolute dream car - 9000 AERO in red ... I wanted to buy it in the 90s as GW in a Saab dealer - unfortunately I couldn't even really enjoy the test drive back then - the tank was empty after just two km - approx. 800 meters in front of the gas station 🙁 okay - then just a hiking day instead of AERO purchase ...

  • Fascinating. With some views you really think the original has been photographed ...

    For example, the photo of the back seat with belt and buckle. I am not a model car collector myself, but I would have to lie if I wanted to say that one or the other Saab miniature would not appeal to me.

    Personally, I found the dull gray teaser of an upcoming model, which was shown here, awesome. I think it was the announcement of a Turbo X. If there were a series of delicious Saabs in this reduced and uniformly color-neutral monochrome look, it would have happened to me for good ...

    As it is, I can talk myself out of the fact that the color of the X or Y model would not fit together in the living room, neither alone nor together, that they were too realistic and not sculptural enough for decoration.

    Hopefully it stays that way, otherwise I would want them all. Really all …

    So I'm grateful that the 9000 comes in red. The 9K was awesome. But in this color it does not fit in the living room and in 1: 1 it would not fit in any other color either ...

    Speaking of colors and scales, the door handles seem a bit thick and the fittings (root wood?) Too red. But Tom already wrote that the final model would probably be even better than the prototype it already is. That is really fascinating ...
