The real story behind Victors 9-5′s
March 5, 2012 in Saabology
Some questions were stated to why Victor Muller didn’t buy his first 9-5 with the registration mark KME 140, well the real story is that this car is a pre-production car which was given to Victor for use by Saab Automobile. The fact is that the car remained registered to Saab Automobile AB until it was decided that the car should be sold out to private hands by the bankruptcy administrators.
Victor used the car for about 6 months and then returned it to Saab when he took delivery of his present car which is a black 9-5 Aero V6 which he still owns. In the summer of 2011 he also took delivery of a Saab 9-3 Independence Edition Aero Convertible equipped with a Turbo4 engine and ID number 007. Both these cars are used regularly by Victor as everyone attending the We are many, We are Saab event in The Netherlands could observe, as Victor arrived at the event in his black 9-5 Aero.
That does not make KME 140 a less special car as it was widely used in media events and also driven by journalists shortly after the sale of Saab had been completed. A significant car with a significant history.
