Detroit, Michigan – A Special Edition Saab 9-3 Convertible will make its American debut at the Los Angeles International auto show next week. This new version of the Saab 9-3 Convertible will be showcased in a unique bright champagne metallic color.

Special content includes influences from the Turbo X performance model, such as the design of the front bumper and steering wheel plus carbon fiber interior finishes and black floor mats with grey binding. Like the Aero version, the rear shows dual exhaust pipes and an anthracite grey bumper insert. Five-spoke, 17-inch alloy wheels will be standard.

The special edition Saab Convertible will feature Saab’s signature 2.0-litre, 210-hp four-cylinder engine and can be matched to six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmissions.

The Saab 9-3 2.0T Special Edition Convertible is expected to arrive in dealer showrooms in January 2009. Canadian prices have not yet been announced, but in the U.S. it will be priced starting at US$46,725.
