Over 100 cars from the Saab Heritage Museum listed in bankruptcy sale

Article by Christian A., on January 18, 2012

Delphi, a Sweden-based company, has announced the details for the liquidation of the over 100 cars in the Saab Heritage Museum. The deadline is on January 20 for attorneys to take bids on these cars, whether as an entire collection or individually, through mail or fax. The cars placed in this museum range from those built in 1946 to the 2006 Aero X concept from 2006.

In this collection, there’s an example for nearly all Saab models, even the rare ones such as the Ur-Saab, a Saab 9000 flat-bed hauler or a Sonnet roadster. There are some formula cars (in Swedish colors) that are available.

During the past weekend, thousands of Saab owners throughout the globe had come together for “We Are Saab” rallies. Those joining these rallies are holding on to hope that at the last minute, there would be a buyer for Saab. There are rumors that the last new vehicles (which number at around 100) would be crushed.

Last September, Saab had sought court protection while they work out a potential rescue by two Chinese firms. The negotiations persisted until November but then, they failed to prosper and eventually ended in December after previous owner General Motors rejected the proposal over fear that its Chinese rivals will get access to its technology. Saab had to cancel operations while the court-appointed monitors formed liquidation plans.
