The seduction car is a demonstration car. The odometer indicates 3.580 kilometers driven. You can safely assume that this was a very enjoyable kilometer. Because the seduction car is a Saab Turbo X. And as is well known, it has it all.
When the decision was made to roll the Turbo X into the limelight in 2007, it was high time. The range of models from the years before had become rather sedate. Too little emotional to be clear. The spectacular sports model was missed. That had happened again and again at Saab before. Most recently with the 9-3 Viggen, which was a few years ago.
Finally emotional again
The Turbo X appealed to irrationality and the instinct to play. It was good for the brand's image and for the automotive hearts of the fans. A Saab that was finally allowed to be a bit rowdy again. With an exhaust sound that told the world about the pleasure of the combustion engine and performance during the morning cold start.
And which is so despicably incorrect that in the age of electric cars one can only distance oneself from it.
But, the matter is not that completely reprehensible. Saab only produced 2000 of these emotional vehicles, so the CO2 balance of the planet should hardly be affected. Probably there were even a few less, we do not have a look at the factory documents.
The Turbo X cult, which existed 4 - 5 years ago, is currently on the wane. There is a lack of vehicles and there is a lack of people who keep the interest current. The first all-wheel drive Saab and the first production vehicle in the world with Haldex 4 clutch has become a little invisible. But that can't do anything to the fascination and status as a seduction car.
The Turbo X can also be reasonable
Because, the Saab is still worth striving for today. You can drive Frankfurt - Hamburg there and back in one day and have a lot of fun. Make a few appointments in between, look forward to the next few kilometers, and have the good feeling of doing something for the treasury. Because the Federal Minister of Finance always travels with you as soon as you indulge in the play instinct and rush the turbo across the route. Then it thunders down the highway as if there is no tomorrow and burns fossil fuels that make you cry.
Of course, the Turbo X can also be slow. And economical. And it's the most sensible car in the world when the slopes are full of snow and ice. Then he bites his way into the snow and pushes the limits of physics. Mind you, a car that premiered around 13 years ago.
You can satisfy your desire for a seduction car if you turn your gaze to Madrid. A Turbo X, which is a demonstration vehicle, is parked there. The presentation is a bit casual, but the facts make you sit up and take notice. 3.580 kilometers, first hand. With premium leather and automatic, a limousine. The sunroof, which is part of the perfection, is (unfortunately) missing.
Separation pain threatens
Well now what? To bring the Saab to Germany, you can hire a shipping company. No problem. Before buying advice (Teil1 and Part 2) so that one becomes clear about the lustful irrationality one brings home.
Then comes the hardest part.
To make the dream a reality, and for the Find a store to convince to load the Saab on the trailer, you have to part with some notes. You would have € 35.000 less on your current account, but something fun to drive with.
Too expensive? Maybe. Or maybe not. Around € 60.000 was due for the first time. From this point of view, the discount for a demonstration car is already generous.
