This extremely well-kept SAAB 9-5 Linear sedan was built in February 2002 and subsequently Australian-complied in July of the same year. It is finished in lustrous Steel Grey metallic with a charcoal leather interior - the latter beautifully complemented by walnut timber trim. It was originally delivered new by SAAB Automobiles Australia (the Australian importer and distributor) as a company vehicle for one of its senior executives, and has covered a well-documented and predominantly highway-driven 193,800km. It comes with a full service log book history, owner’s manuals and two remote keys. SAAB always equipped its vehicles exceptionally well for the time, and this Linear offers supple soft leather trim throughout the cabin, a tilt/reach-adjustable leather multi-function steering wheel, heated front seats, climate control air-conditioning, high-quality 7-speaker sound system with CD player, onboard computer, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, fold-down rear seats with ski-port, fold-out front cupholder, four airbags, ABS braking, traction control, 16-inch factory alloy wheels and more. The Linear is powered by a 2.3L intercooled turbo 4-cylinder twin-cam engine developing a substantial 136kW/280Nm, coupled with a smooth 5-speed automatic transmission delivering drive to the front wheels. SAAB was a pioneer of the art of automotive turbo-charging, and highly adept at building reliable and under-stressed motors which offered sparkling performance on-demand. This 9-5 drives as beautifully as the day it was delivered, and will delight the enthusiast with its eager and flexible throttle response. It is rare to find cars of this age in such well-preserved condition, and this Linear stands as testimony to the caring ownership it has clearly enjoyed throughout its life. With the brand now unfortunately consigned to automotive history as a maker of passenger cars, excellent SAABs are becoming harder and harder to find. This impressive example stands as an engaging and enjoyable tribute to the legendary Swedish auto-maker which uniquely brought aeronautical technology and insight to its automotive engineering, and will deliver rewarding driving experiences for many years to come.
