1946 was a defining year for Saab. The original aircraft company (founded a decade earlier) had decided to diversify into car making. Throughout the summer of 1946, the experimental, Saab car prototype that would by 1949 become the Saab 92, was created by a small team of men.
UrSaab – as an ‘Exper-Wagen’ was a sensation in engineering and styling terms, it defined a new design language. Sweden’s driving conditions cannot have been the only arbiter of UrSaab – otherwise Volvo would have been producing front-wheel-drive flying saucers of cars too! By 1947 UrSaab was well on the way to becoming a production car.
To celebrate URSaab or 92.001 as some call it, well-known Saab author (Saab Cars the Complete Story) and former designer Lance Cole, has released a new print to mark the 1946-2016 anniversary of Saab’s first car.
The print depicts the Ursaab in its final form and with the early prototype that had a differing frontal design. Painted in the correct black, with a suitably Saab-blue background, this dynamic artwork is now available.
The print comes in two versions:
Print 1: An open edition A3- squared print (approx. 15inx16 in /38 x40cm) at £20.00 including UK postage.
Print 2: A limited edition, larger A2-squared (approx 21 x 24inch / 53cmx60cm) print priced at £40.00. Ten artist’s remarque collectors’ editions will also be available.
Overseas orders a small postage charge.
Paypal is preferred payment method (or other arrangement)
A donation to the Saab museum will be made from the sale of prints.
