Saab Convertibles Turn 25 in Mustard

Saab celebrates 25 years of Convertibles with a special model painted in a silly summer color. This is the second limited edition of the 9-3 convertible for this year.

Saabs idea of a limited edition means throwing in a standard car and a loony paintwork.

"Saab has sold more than a quarter of a million convertibles worldwide and this latest edition highlights the timeless design and responsible performance that Saab convertibles have always represented," said Steve Shannon, executive director, marketing and product, Saab Automobile USA.

Don't expect any power upgrades though, because the 9-3 only looks sporty, with new front bumpers, steering wheel, carbon fiber dash black floor mats, dual exhaust pipes, antracite grey bumper insert, and marvelous five-spoke, 17 inch alloy wheels fitted as standard.

The engine is a 2-liter gem with 4 cylinders and turbochargers that chucks out 210 hp. This is the right car for students, as it allows you to go to the seaside, with the volume pumped up and a pack of drunk friends in the back.

Saabs of the past have been criticized for having soft and bending chassis and quite rightly so, but that adds to the fun of it. This isn't a sports car, it's an open top cruiser, it isn't designed to travel around corners at a million miles per hour, but to take you there and make you feel the wind in your hair.
