Just 366 examples will be produced, one for each day during the first year, with one extra for the start of the second year.

Unveiled at Saab’s assembly plant in Trollhättan during its day of celebration, the Independence Edition features a unique Amber Orange metallic paint finish. It is based on top-of-the-line Aero specification and includes a limited edition serial number etched into the rear side windows. The Independence Edition is further distinguished by 18-inch, five-spoke wheels in a satin chrome/black finish. Inside, it gets Parchment leather sport seats and a glovebox with amber orange highlights. It will also receive a carbon-fiber-look leather finish for the instrument panel, handbrake, gearshift molding and door handles. A ‘welcome’ message will appear in the instrument display alongside a unique turbo boost gauge. Finally, the orange-stitched leather sport steering wheel is contrasted by floor mats with grey piping
