I can just hear the fabric flapping in the wind...

...for about 8 seconds!!!

That is one awesome looking ride. I'll be there at Barrett-Jackson in January to see it go!

I thought these were mostly built for NHRA stock rules and I also thought if you run a convertible at an NHRA event that the top has to be up.

I think they will really auction the second one but the first one that GM is "keeping" will probably be stored in a nice garage that might happen to be owned by Mr.Hendricks...My thoughts

Why did they even put a radio in there if they were just gonna mount switches to the screen?Just plain stupid. Nothing against verts but this just looks silly imo.

I don't get the complaints. This thing is awesome! Why is everyone questioning a COPO convertible. Why?.... Why not?

Is this car even stable enough to drive?

Doesn't make sense to have a COPO "Race" car you wouldn't race. This is a real headscratcher even for SEMA

Maybe second.

SAABs United bought the last produced SAAB 9-3 collectively. (Last SAAB ever? We'll see.)

Naturally the cost is way less than what that monster will go for but still...

They paid roughly $35k for it. I can't find the exact number. The retail price of it was ~48k.

http://www.saabsunited.com/2012/05/s...omplished.html .
If I'm not allowed to link to there, please let me know or just remove the link please.

EDIT: What they did with it was that they donated it to the SAAB Museum, well technically they still own it but it's being displayed at the SAAB Museum.

It's a race car built to some very strict safety standards.
You can bet your a** it is perfectly stable enough to drive down a drag strip.

Even though it was built as a race car, there is a pretty good chance that GM knows full well that since this will be the only convertible offered it may never actually see the track.
It will be worth much more as a "collector" car than a drag car in the future.
