Essen Motor Show celebrates 50 years with Saab 9-5NG SportCombi

Last week, the Essen Motor Show celebrated its 50th anniversary as a popular destination for car enthusiasts in Germany. What better birthday gift than the line-up in the Saab section: a java brown 9-5NG SportCombi!

The car with VIN number YS3GP5ML2C4200010 rolled off the Trollhättan production line as a 9-5NG SportCombi TiD4 in Vector trim, but got upgraded with an Aero front and rear, plus 19″ Edge rims (see for more details our Directory).

More Saab classics
The German Saab Club selected two more Saabs to keep the SportCombi company: a 9-3 Aero with a Viggen body kit and a 99 Turbo, both looking equally impeccable!
