Saab Classic Car Display in Frankfurt – Turbo technology meets nostalgia

· Automotive legends bring Scandinavian flair to the metropolis on the Main
· Meet designers and engineers on site

Rüsselsheim. In celebration of 30 years of Saab turbocharging, up to 50 classic Saab cars will be displayed on the grounds of the Saab Zentrum Frankfurt on September 12 and 13. Exhibits will include two legendary Saab 96s and several Saab Sonetts, as well as the Saab 900 Talladega.
Contemporary models such as the high performance 280-hp Turbo X will also be on show. Connoisseurs and fans of the Swedish premium brand are cordially invited to get a close-up experience of Saab’s automotive history.

The event starts at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 12, when a classic Saab 900 Turbo and the Turbo X, recalling the look of its 1979 predecessor with a black paint finish, will arrive at the dealership. “Father and son all in black, that’s certainly a visual highlight,” says Heike Herzog, managing director of the Saab Zentrum in Frankfurt. “On Saturday, our doors will be open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. We expect about 50 classic Saabs from all over Germany, owned by our customers and members of the Saab Club Rhein-Main. Several cars will even arrive from Switzerland.”

Swedish cars, Swedish music, Swedish flair In addition to the historic Saab model exhibition in the courtyard of the dealership, visitors can enjoy a number of special activities and the entertainment program. Janos Bende, the master automobile mechanic at Saab Zentrum Frankfurt, will demonstrate a live restoration on his own Saab 99 and designer Dietmar Finger, from GME’s Design Center in Rüsselsheim, will tell the story of how he fell in love with the brand and be available to answer technical questions. Saab enthusiasts will also be able to look around the parts market and pick up a gem or two. Books about Saab’s legendary rallying exploits will be on hand, together with a collection of model cars and TV clips showing historic Saabs in action.

To keep the children entertained, artist and playground designer Micha Steinhauer will be on site with his “Phantasiothek”. Six stations with
novel wooden toys will give free rein to youthful creativity. The Swedish singer Pia Fridhill and her band will provide live musical entertainment.
