Unique Saabs Spread Across Europe

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

There was enormous interest in the 78 unique Saabs at KVD's car auction held at the beginning of April. The greatest interest was reserved for the few 9-5 Aero Sportcombi 2012 models that were for sale and the Saabs' new owners are spread across Europe.

The auction of the unique Saab cars ended on 3rd April and received a lot of attention, both in Sweden and internationally. The most expensive was a Saab 9-5 Aero Sportcombi, where the winning bid came in at 364,000 SEK. There was then a Saab 9-4X 3.0 V6 XWD at 350,000 SEK, followed by a Saab 9-5 2.0 TiD4 Vector Sportcombi, which sold for 319,500 SEK.

Holland was the destination of the greatest number of cars (23), closely followed by Germany (20). Fourteen of the Saabs stayed in Sweden and five went to Finland. The rest of the buyers came from Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Poland and the total sales at the auction came to 13 million SEK.

"Our site has visitors from around the globe and there was great interest in Saab, so I am not surprised that so many cars went overseas," says Per Blomberg, Business area manager at KVD.

The auction was the second auction of unique Saabs that KVD has held on the instructions of the administrators of Saab Automobiles AB. The first auction was held in December 2012 and, then as now, the Saab 9-5 Sportcombi achieved the highest price. If the results of both auctions were combined, the buyers of the cars were from 12 different countries.

KVD is the largest independent marketplace for the sale of used cars, machinery and heavy vehicles in the Nordic area. The company runs the http://www.kvd.se and http://www.kvdauctions.com auction sites where cars, heavy vehicles and machinery are bought and sold at weekly internet auctions to buyers from Scandinavia, Europe and the rest of the world. Over 22,000 cars and 10,000 machines and heavy vehicles are sold via kvd.se each year.
