Since Saab Automobile is a Swedish car brand, we're going to play around with the origin of our vehicles today. The Saab Base Cap is now part of the standard range in our shop. Today we are providing her with a limited Sweden edition.
Because the dark blue of the cap and the yellow of the Swedish national flag complement each other perfectly. It makes the edition edition eye-catching and also looks very good.
Saab Base Cap Sweden Edition
To realize this, we borrowed the original yellow color of the Swedish flag and had the historic logo, consisting of lettering and an airplane symbol, embroidered on the cap. The aircraft symbol represents the Saab 18, a twin-engine aircraft from the 1940s that served as a reconnaissance aircraft and bomber in the Air Force.
With a top speed of 570 km/h, the 18 was one of the fastest fan guns of its time and embodies a pinnacle of this technology. At the same time, it was also the last military aircraft with a reciprocating engine that Saab manufactured. 242 copies left the workshops; the Saab 18 was an important cornerstone of the national defense.
Saab 18 - from plane to car
The automotive pioneers later adopted the stylized airplane and the Saab lettering for their first car. Depending on the model year, the logo was found as a small symbol in speedometers and tachometers. It was even printed on the analog board clock or on the sun visors. In addition, it was placed much more prominently in the center of the steering wheel and on the stern.
Decades later, Saab played again with the beginnings and the B 18 itself. Because with the 2012 model year, the aircraft finally went digital, it then greeted Saab drivers with the entertainment start screen and found its place in the line speedometer.
You can read more about this unique aircraft, which has been part of Saab's history for so long, here in the coming days.
You don't have to say much about our cap itself. The basis is provided by the robust Saab Base Cap made from 100% cotton, which we have been offering in the Aero X Club for a year.
The refinement was again carried out by one of the proven partners in the EU, and in contrast to the standard version, our Sweden Edition is only available in limited quantities. The edition can now be purchased in the shop (Link) be ordered.
