SAAB INTRODUCES 9-5 WAGON GARY FISHER EDITION
In 1999, Saab Cars USA, Inc. and Gary Fisher-two brands with a passion for breaking the rules-teamed up to form the Gary Fisher Saab Mountain Bike Race Team. The partnership immediately proved its merits as the team garnered the world championship title and a world cup victory. This year, the partnership's success will be expressed even further as Saab introduces the Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition.
CHICAGO-The new Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition is a true sport wagon that combines the performance, safety and cargo-hauling abilities of the Saab 9-5 Wagon with enhanced versatility features that suit one of the world's top mountain bike teams. The vehicle begins with Saab's entry-level 9-5 Wagon, adds the Premium Package which includes leather seats, dual power seats with memory and a premium Harman/Kardon audio system, and offers a number of unique versatility and design features that complement an active lifestyle.
The Saab 9-5 Wagon, with its standard 73 cubic feet of cargo capacity (with rear seats folded) and aircraft-inspired CargoTracksTM load securing system, is designed to accommodate nearly all needs. However, for those who require even more flexibility,
the 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition adds:
To top off the package, a Saab Limited Edition Gary Fisher mountain bike is also included. The bike offers Fisher's 6061 T6 aluminum frame with Genesis geometry, a Rock Shox Judy XC fork, Bontrager Superstock wheels and Shimano Components. The bike, which features unique Saab Team Blue paint with Fisher Team Yellow decals, is only available with this vehicle and has a retail value of $900.
The Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition will be available this March, and Saab plans to produce only 650 units. They will be available in Silver and Black and, including all of the additional features listed above, will only be $1,880 more than the base 9-5 Wagon with the Premium Package. The price of the Saab 9-5 Wagon Gary Fisher Edition will be $36,995.
Saab's relationship with Gary Fisher illustrates their shared vision. While four decades and an ocean separate the creation of the two companies, their philosophies are strikingly similar. The two brands define innovation, individuality, outstanding design and intelligent technology, and they have a passion for breaking the rules. Their partnership will be front stage at this year's Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia as the team features four Olympic contenders. In addition, this spring, they will launch the Saab Gary Fisher Ultimate Trails Tour (UTT), bringing Gary Fisher and Saab dealers, as well as potential Saab and Fisher customers, together for a weekend of bike and car testing, entertainment and technical clinics.
