DILEMMA: SHOULD WE REPRODUCE THE US OR EUROPEAN VERSION OF THE SAAB 99 TURBO?
DNA Collectibles decided to replicate the Saab 99 Turbo in the most eye catching color, the Cardinal Red. Regarding the exterior, let’s focus on some nice details. You can notice that we didn't miss a thing... Like the rear spoiler, the mud flaps with the Saab logo, the chrome handles and mirrors' fixations. Moreover, if you take a closer look through the front grille, you will even perceive the 2 radiator fans.
The interior is not outdone neither with the great 2 tones seats, specific choice of colors from the 80’s. You can easily see the lovely wooden dashboard, embellished by the Saab 99 chrome and blue label on the passenger side.
One particularity is the extra turbo boost gauge located on the dashboard! Since then, this famous design that was kept on for many later models.
If your eyes are sharp enough you can read the indications on the left turn signal switch as well as on the right wipers switch. Only delicate hands can apply those elements correctly and this is the level of detail DNA Collectibles wants to offer to collectors.
At the early development stage, we wanted to replicate the US version with their characteristic 4 rounded headlights. But when we showed our project to our community, we received a lot of feedbacks asking for the European version, which we heard! We immediately changed our development, and now you can admire the result with the 2 rectangle headlights accessorized with 2 nice vipers.
The white stripes on the side have also been questioned. For the real car, it was optional for the American market only... But it looked so good! So once more, we asked to our Facebook community whether we should add them or not. The result was obviously to add them, so we did!
