This is a special Saab photo project – a co-operation of Saab Car Museum, Column Identitet AB and Steampipe Productions Studio AB.

Just in time for the celebration of Saab’s 70th anniversary, they are developing an exclusive collectors box with images of selected models from the Saab Car Museum. It is a project full of passion for a car brand, says graphic designer Niklas Andersson.

Niklas and photographer Johan Wedenström have been diving into the Saab Car museum’s treasure chamber to catch the car brand’s history. They both have a lot of experience with Saab car, both personally and in their work.

Iconic - 1947 - 2017 Saab-history
Iconic – A mixture of the best from 70 years of brilliance. A tribute to Saab and its cars. Ingenious, wayward and ambitious.

Johan has photographed many cars over the years, including Saab: “Look at this model from 1985, the EV-1, with solar panels on the roof. Or the modern Aero X. Every car lover must love them.  It was unveiled in 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show, Aero X can be just as competitive as even the latest sports car

You realize, that Saab has contributed a lot to car industry and Saab has shaped many other automakers”, says Niklas. Therefore, for these two authors, it was very difficult task to select 16 pieces of cars from the extensive Saab range. Interest in their projects is already high and they e already received some advance orders, including the one in Moscow.
