This Stunning color is called Sky Blue (It reminds on Electric Blue from the previous generations (around MY06) but this is a nice and safe colour) and it was produced only three Saab 9-3 Griffin cars with that color code. Once, this rare 9-3 Sedan model was on sale, and may be sold at a price of 40,000 Swiss francs.
Anyhow, Interesting Saab story. After the Saab factory in Trollhättan stopped producing Saabs in 9 June 2011 there were a number of cars left on the production line in various stages of incompleteness. This car was one of them. The cars were then received by Swedish dealership in the world, ANA of Trollhättan, and underwent final assembly and inspection as any regular Saab would.
Three of those cars were chosen to be made into special cars, a Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan, a 9-3 Aero SportCombi and a 9-3 Cabriolet. All three were painted in this beautiful shade of metallic blue – Sky Blue, and given pretty much the fully loaded treatment.

Also installed was all the equipment present on the Saab 9-3 Griffin Independence Edition, such as a orange Turbo needle that looked like the one on the Classic Saab 900 Turbo, Hirsch leather interior with contrasting white stitches, 19 inch BBS wheels, etc. A full compliment of Hirsch upgrades were installed to the exterior and interior, like carbon fiber inserts, as well as a Hirsch exhaust were installed. Basically if Saab or Hirsch made something or this car it was installed. Truly unique. As a final touch both rear side windows had “Sky Blue Edition Nr 001/001” etched onto the glass.
