Victor Mullers first 9-5 stays in Sweden
March 5, 2012 in News
TTELA reports this morning that a person from Sweden has bought Victor Mullers 9-5 Aero with registration number “KME 140″ which was picked up by Victor and his son shortly after the purchase of Saab Automobile by Spyker Cars in february 2010.
To TTELA Jens Ismunden, the new owner of the car tells his story:
I am a real Saab Fan, and the 9-5 is a fantastic car. My mother bought two last week.
According to TTELA Victor Mullers Saab 9-5 Aero has been for sale at BIVA in Uppsala, Sweden. Yesterday a dutch-man was supposed to have bought the car, which was true until this morning.
I had made a deal with Biva that if the car was not sold to the dutch-man I would buy it. Since the car was not paid for this morning the car was mine,
Jens is 35 years old living in Ljunghusen and the youngest member in the southern swedish branch of the Swedish Saabclub. His father competed in rally with a Saab V4 while during Jens younger years while he was living in the northern parts of Sweden where he grew up.
His mother is also a Saab fan, and has managed to grab one of the last of the new Saab 9-5’s that rolled off the production line in Trollhättan.
I wanted to have a 9-5 Aero and sort of by coincidence it turned out to be Victor Muller’s car. I recognized the registration number and found it remarkable that Victor Muller had not bought the car from Saab and almost strange was that it was a dutchman initially buying it but ended up unable to pay for it…
– I am a true Saab fan, when the bankruptcy occurred I actually shed tears. I really hope that Saab will survive and more cars will be produced.
Jörgen Trued from SaabsUnited tells that it’s now starting to become difficult to find new Saab 9-5’s since only about 10’000 cars were built, about the same numbers as the Saab Sonett.
– The 9-5 is definitely a collectors item, especially the Aero-models which are “top of the line”. I have one, Lars Carlström bought one last week and many more. There are only a handful left.
Jan Åke Jonsson’s blue Saab 9-5 which was parked outside Café Opera when Spykers purchase of Saab was presented to the media is also for sale soon. A dealership in Tingsryd will administrate that sale.
