Saab 9-3 Aero in Convertible version to admire the interior details
The love story between Saab and DNA Collectibles has been here since the foundation of our company, and the emotion remains intact ! We built a strong Saab aficionados community over the years, and you were numerous to request us to reproduce the Saab 9-3 Aero Convertible. So this is our way to thank you!
You also asked for the following body colors : Lime Yellow Metallic, Black, and Chili Red Metallic. So here we go, select your favorite color my friends !
Time to talk about the 1/18 scale model car replica of the Saab 9-3 Aero Cabriolet, and let’s start with the exterior.
First of all, she comes with a powerful Aero kit version featuring the very typical, interesting and well reproduced following details:
- the front splitter, side skirts, and the rear diffuser
- the spoiler
- the five spokes twin alloy rims with the Saab logo integrated on the center cap
- and the single chromed exhaust pipe
Regarding the front of the scale model car, the engraved headlights and fog lights are minutious as usual. Below the Saab logo applied on the hood, the fine perforated front grill from which you can see the radiator inside and surrounded by aluminum trims is perfectly replicated. You can even read the Saab inscription on the central aluminum part of the front grill. Just below, the matt black protection trims are directing us harmoniously from the front bumper, passing by the sides, to finish its run to the rear bumper… What a transition to move to the rear of the car!
We didn’t miss anything in the rear of the scale model car either: the “93” and “Aero” badges, the radio and GPS antennas on the trunk, or the fine replicated trunk key lock... everything is there.
Making a convertible version with a removable roof is fun ! Yes, but only if you can assume the necessary level of details inside the car because you cannot hide behind anything ! So let’s see if we did a good job on that part.
We need to talk again about the Aero kit which also involves specific features in the cockpit fantastically reproduced:
- the 6-speed gear lever (so fine that you can actually read the speeds on it)
- the 2 tones leather effect upholstery
- the metallic trim pack especially on the steering wheel, center console and the door handles
- the leather effect body hugging sports seats shape
The dashboard and the central console details are just astonishing. All the tiny details are finely replicated : the integrated GPS, the multitude of buttons, the ignition key lock next to the gear lever, the famous turbo gauge on the instrument cluster... It is a delight.
Instead of moulding everything into one massive resin block to make it easier, we prefer to add several separate parts to bring as much realism as possible such as the steering wheel (integrating the Saab logo and all the buttons), the commodos, the hand brake, the door handles and the central mirror.
In the same spirit, we also applied photo etched parts for the speakers and for the buckle of the seat belts made of real fabric !
