When Saab went bankrupt in 2011, it did it with style. The 2011 Saab 9-5 is classy, sporty, safe, beautiful… there are plenty of superlatives that can be used to describe this cruise ship.

The design harks back to the Saab AeroX, the glazing from the Saab 900 and an interior that gives you the impression of being in an aircraft cockpit - the 9-5 saloon conveys the very essence of Saab. It's as if the design team knew that it would be the last one. The Aero version gives it an even hotter look.

DNA has earned its reputation for exquisite resincasts, largely of the back of its 9-3 Viggen Convertible a few years back, when the company was in its infancy. So the company felt compelled to produce this model by way of a tribute to the marque that has helped DNA so much to get to where it is today. DNA's Saab back catalogue is already mightily impressive, and the company has promised that there is so much more yet to add to it. Long may it continue to expand!

The Arctic White paint job was chosen by DNA's social media community and it’s a great choice. The Aero pack was an obvious choice - featuring 'Turbine' wheels, specific bumpers and a sporty overall look.

Like the real car, DNA's replica has all the details necessary to makes it totally accurate. On the instrument panel, you can see speedometer and tachometer needles, which will remind you of an airplane cockpit and there is even the discreet Aero badge on the steering wheel.

The front end features DNA's legendary attention to detail on the lights and the grille is incredibly realistic too. Another exquisite replica from DNA, and an abolsute must-have for any Saab collector (like the editor!).
