Saab lovers take notice. Swedish auction house KVD has some ultra rare Saab products on the block, and we're not talking about a 1950s Saab 92. Up for auction are a bunch of low-mileage Saab models being sold off as part of the bankrupted automaker's assets. Included in the lot of cars are models like the 2012 9-5 SportCombi (above), the 2012 9-4X (shown below) and even a 9-5 sedan driven by Victor Muller himself.

Discovered by PistonHeads, this Saab auction has numerous 9-5 SportCombi and 9-4X models, which should prove to be very rare cars. Only a small number of 9-4Xs were ever sold, and Saab closed up shop before the 9-5 SportCombi could even go on sale here. In addition to the rarity, many of the cars have fewer than 10 miles on their odometers and seemingly low reserve prices; a 9-4X 3.0 XWD Premium with just six miles has a current bid of 180,000 Swedish Krona (just over $27,000 USD) that has already met the reserve price. Some of the cars still have the protective factory shipping tape covering up the interior and exterior.

Other than the rare SportCombis and 9-4Xs being auctioned off, there's also a sharp 2012 9-3 Cabriolet with 11 miles on the clock and a V8-powered 2006 Saab 9-7X with just 3,003 miles.

      I wish I could've bidded on that Saab 9-5 wagon. I think that was the best looking Saab vehicle in the entire line-up.

      why did GM kill off Saab and keep Buick? I dont get it. Saab fits more into the market segment it was in [entry premium] better than Buick does. As it is Buick is close to Caddy in many models and are deliberately downgraded so they dont steal from Caddy sales. Saab could have had the sporty entry premium market to themselves from the GM stable. Look at that 9-5...pure awesomeness.

        It's GM, never makes sense, they killed Oldsmobile right when they started making better looking cars. Then again, in Phoenix they were selling Saabs at the Caddy dealers mixed in with them.

          Hi my name is Moron, Anyway, i loved Saab and had a '98 900S which I absolutely loved. The only reason I didn't get a 9-3 SportCombi was because I was in grad school at the time and I didn't want to carry a hefty payment. I'm still disappointed Saab to Saab's demise. But as an earlier poster said, GM managed it poorly and tried to transform the company into the Swedish Opel/Vauxhaull.

        Because Saab never made money and was already in a death spiral.

        Buick sold about 10-15 times as many cars as Saab did.

        They finally gave Saab a mercy killing because they'd disgraced the brand beyond repair. They spent over ten years turning the brand from a quirky, innovative car maker into a GM clone. They just forced them to rebadge their leftovers and Saab buyers caught on. And rather than pay upmarket money for Swedish branded Chevy's, they went elsewhere. The Saab faithful were gone, and to non-Saab people they're a bit...weird. Buick was a safe bet, it's an American household name, and as it stands Buick most certainly has far more production capabilities and assembly lines than Saab had, which meant turning them around was less expensive than trying to rebuild a relatively boutique manufacturer and turn it into a major player.

      ARGH! How on earth can I buy one of those 9-5 SportCombi's and bring it here? Would that be even possible, because if it is I want to do it

      Some of those would be collectors items I'm sure, as they are test vehicles which are usually destroyed afterwards.

      Great looking 9-5's, the rest don't look that pretty. People in Sweden would love them since it would be easy to fix

      So was this a Saabaru 2? What am I missing here?

      Sad that none of them can be registered for road use . There are two US spec wagons listed too. I'd love a Euro spec manual XWD diesel wagon...
