City of Trollhattan, SAAB AB and The Wallenberg Foundation pay £2.6m
24 January 2012

The Saab museum collection in Trollhattan will remain in place, according to reports.

The administrator acting on behalf of Saab had sought offers for the collection, and had indicated it was willing to break it up in order to maximise the sale price.

However, the city of Trollhattan, SAAB AB and The Wallenberg Foundation are reported to have paid around £2.6 million to secure the entire collection.

The museum contains 120 cars and includes the first ever Saab car - the Ur-Saab.

Hopefully Top Gear will do a Special on the better Saab's, bit like the Alfa Romeo one they did.

Some might say it's ironic that this has been saved, when the true museum pieces were those still coming off the production line...

Good to see this isn't a Saab bashing forum...............unlike some.

Also, people seem to have a genuine love of cars.

A salutory reminder that all Saab now remains is a museum piece.

Indeed thay have done - to be televised in February - I'm holding my breath as I expect it to be no less than a warts'n'all romp through the haydays and lowdays. Looking forward to it, hoping it may even coincide with some better news about one of the 5 current suitors for the company as going concern rather than a parts bin.
