There are fewer gaps in one-make historiography as time goes on, and a significant one has now been filled by this grandly produced story of forty years of the popular and individualistic Swedish Saab.
With lavish colour illustrations, and a comprehensive text taking the history from the Saab’s forerunners and the early three-cylinder DKW-like two-strokes, through the Saab EJ racing cars, Monte Carlo and other competition successes, the Sonnett and on up to the 900 and 9000 series, it is not surprising that Saab (GB) Ltd has made this a presentation volume to commemorate the opening of its new headquarters here.
The significant aircraft side of Saab is included in this welcome book, whose foreword is by Sten Wennlo, vice-president of Saab-Scania AB and general manager of Saab’s Car Division.
The English translation is by Tom Byrne. This useful history includes production tables but lacks an index. WB
