Saab UK looking to sell last remaining 9-3 Convertibles

If you were thinking about buying a new Saab but couldn't due to the manufactures bankruptcy, then we have some pleasant news for you.

Exclusively for the UK, Saab Parts UK has successfully secured the sale of the last remaining 26 right-hand drive MY12 9-3 Convertibles, which will be available to buy through the company's national network of 87 Authorised Repairers.

A spokesman said three trim-levels will be offered, called SE, Aero and Independence Edition. A 160bhp 1.9 TTiD and 2.0 litre petrol with 163bhp or 220bhp power the 9-3 Convertibles.

The 9-3 Independence Edition, which Saab's former owner Spyker had created to celebrate a year of "independence" from General Motors is offered only with the 180bhp 1.9 litre twin-turbo diesel matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Saab said that it originally planned to build 80 examples of the 9-3 Independence Edition for the UK market, but in total only seven right-hand drive models were imported in the country in 2011.

From the last batch, only seven cars are Independent editions. On-the-road prices for the remaining 9-3 Convertibles start from £22,750.
