Saab museum being put up for sale

The cars in the Saab car museum are now put up for sale. People and parties interested in buying one or more of the cars or other exhibition items are invited to make bids up until January 20th.

Just a few days ago it was reported that Innovatum in Trollhättan was in the process of buying the car collection to save the museum from being shattered. To TTELA Tore Helmersson of Innovatum says that the reason the cars now are being put up for sale is due to the procedures that needs to be following under a bankruptcy.

"There is no drama, they are just going by the formalities which they are supposed to in a situation like this. I had a hunch that they would announce this," Helmersson says.

"This does not change our wish of taking over and running the museum. It is a matter of negotiation and we have been clear on that," he continued.

In other words, Innovatum and Tore Helmersson still seem confident that they will succeed in acquiring the Saab car museum.
