Saab Apeldoorn deliver first Saab 9-5

October 17, 2010 in Saabology

Saab Apeldoorn is a Dutch Saab dealership that has a special place at the heart of Saabs United.

It was opened on April 1, 2009. If you’re very new to the world of Saab, that date might not mean much. If you’ve been following Saab for at least a little while now, then you’d know that April 2009 was right when things were looking quite dire for Saab. GM had only just announced that Saab were to be sold but there were no named buyers and the market had pretty much written Saab off for closure.

Most would suggest that April 2009 would not have been the ideal time to open a Saab dealership, but open they did (and they’ve opened two more since, in Utrecht and Duiven).

And I’m pleased to say that whilst it’s been a tough road, they’re still here, and Martin from Saab Apeldoorn sent me an email today showing me their first Saab 9-5 delivery – and it’s in Java Metallic!

The car belongs to a very happy customer named Bertil K (he sent me copies of the photos too :-) ) and as you can see, it’s got the cocoa interior with wood accents as well – fantastic stuff.

My congratulations to Bertil on his new 9-5, which looks absolutely delicious, as well as to the crew at Saab Apeldoorn. May it be the first of many!
