THE SAAB 9-3 SPORTCOMBI TURBO X TRIBUTES THE 30 YEARS OF TURBOCHARGING

Introduction

Before talking about the Saab 9-3 Sportcombi Turbo X 1/18 scale model car, let’s state a few interesting facts about the real car.
The Saab 9-3 passed by 2 versions between 1998 and 2011 during Saab’s ownership, and then a last short run during NEVS ownership in 2013 and 2014. We would like to focus on the second generation here, more specifically the sportiest version: the Turbo X in its Sportcombi body. The Turbo X special edition celebrates Saab’s 30th anniversary of turbocharging and was exclusively available in Jet Black body color.
Nostalgia, power, elegance, acclaimed by our community… These are some examples of the reasons which led us to replicate this Saab 9-3 Turbo X Sportcombi in a splendid 1/18 scale model car.

Exterior description

Let’s start with the front of the car.
All the elements discussed below are separate parts to bring as much realism as possible to this magnificent 1 18 miniature car.
Below the Saab logo applied on the hood, the V shape perforated front grill (integrating the “Saab” inscription on its center trim) and the 2 side grills are surrounded by beautiful anthracite trims. The headlights and fog lights are perfectly engraved to give the impression of being in front of the real car. Look at the accuracy of all the textures and the bulbs inside ! The headlight washers, mandatory on every car equipped with xenon lights, add a nice realism touch to the front end.

To keep our spirit of ultimate precision, we also applied several separate parts on the sides of the scale model car for the turning signals, the side mirrors and the door handles.
The bicolor silver and anthracite 6 spoke Turbo X rims integrate the Saab logo on the center caps. Their design was inspired by the typical old 3 spoke rims used in the past for the Saab 900 series.
The stylish sporty design and slender shape of the car definitely invite you to fall in love with this attractive Saab 9-3 Sportcombi Turbo X model.

The rear of the car is also full of tiny details !
Below the 2 small rear reflectors and on each side of the diffuser, the Saab Turbo X has a carefully tuned sport exhaust system that gives the car a powerful sound. Its distinctive twin, rhomboid shaped tailpipes were fantastically replicated.
On top of the 4 parking sensors, the Saab logo, the “9-3” and “Turbo X XWD” inscriptions are carefully applied on the trunk.
As well as the headlights, the complex rear lights are very finely reproduced and you can acknowledge the perfect workmanship of the engraving job. As for every car which is at ease with its sportivity, we didn’t miss to replicate the spoiler !
Cherry on the cake, the sunroof is perfect to properly enlighten all the minutious details of the interior of the scale model car replica, which is by the way the topic of the next chapter !

Interior description

The cockpit quality rendering is just astonishing !
Let’s start with the harmonious combination of the black interior color with the carbon trims applied on the dashboard, the door panels, the glove box, and around the gear lever.

The level of details on the instrument cluster, the steering wheel and the central console are just a dealight considering that you are looking at a 1/18 scale model car. For instance, in recognition of Saab’s turbo heritage, the Saab Turbo X boost gauge is a replica of the original 900 Turbo display. Furthermore, a quirky message appears on the instrument display upon start-up: “ready for take off”, which is visible on our miniature model car. What a nice reminder of Saab's old days in the aircraft industry !

Several separate parts were minoustiously applied in the interior to give you the best final rendering:

  • The protection grill to compartmentalize the cockpit from the trunk
  • The steering wheel with all the buttons controls
  • The door handles
  • The manual gear lever

The Turbo X special version comes standard with the leather sport seats which, of course, were properly reproduced on this 1:18 miniature car.
Finally, the seat belts are made of real fabric and the buckles are photo etched parts.

Conclusion

After reading this complete description of our Saab 9-3 Sportcombi Turbo X 1/18 scale model car, you must be totally convinced of the top quality of this replica car.
Don’t over think it and purchase this masterpiece now !
