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

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.

Yeah great! It is so nice to hear Saab museum saved. Museums must not be terminated because for me they are the ones who store and preserves the past of our ancestors and country. Social media services

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

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.
