Life can be sneaky. Collectors have been waiting for a 1:18 miniature of the Saab 9-3 Viggen Coupe for years. Then DNA Collectibles takes care of the problem. And at the same time plunges the collectors into new difficulties. Because the Swiss bring the Saab Coupe in three different colors at the same time.
This raises the question of which of the three versions you want to see in your display case. And whether you shouldn't order them all right away. Which might lead to space problems and other imponderables.
As always, the photos provided by DNA Collectibles show the first prototypes. Since it usually takes 12 months for the manufacturer to bring its newest baby onto the market, the model continues to mature in detail in the meantime. In fact, what can be seen at the moment makes you want to see the product.
A lot of the details are well taken, but there is still room for more. DNA promises the visibility of the intercooler, engraved taillights and fabric straps. The Viggen Body Kit and the bridge spoiler seem consistent in detail, in the interior you should perhaps reconsider the very silver color of the dashboard. In principle, this is a successful homage to an unforgettable vehicle from Saab.
Only 764 Viggen Coupes were produced
The 9-3 Viggen, as a coupe, convertible and sedan, was manufactured in Finland. From time to time a 9-3 I Aero was mixed with the Finnish Viggen, which served to better utilize the belts at Valmet. Of the 4.600 units produced, the two-door model is the rarest variant. Only 764 of her were made.
You have some time to think about whether you would order the Viggen in Lightning Blue, Black or Monte Carlo Yellow. The collectibles will not come onto the market until the second quarter of 2. As usual in a strictly limited edition, the numbering will be visible on the floor pan of each vehicle.
DNA Collectibles is again offering early birders a discount of 10% on the retail price. The only thing left to consider is whether one is enough, or whether 3 Viggen wouldn't look much better in your own collection.
