The L.A. Auto Show kicks off tomorrow with a slew of all-new models most people haven’t seen before. Actually, it kicks off here on KickingTires tonight at midnight EST, but we digress. Today, GM is giving us some special editions to whet our appetite for the big reveals tomorrow, starting with Saab’s 60th Anniversary 9-3 sedan, SportCombi and convertible, plus its 9-5 sedan and SportCombi.

All the special editions get an Ice Blue metallic paint job, unique 17-inch alloy wheels, embossed black leather seats and dark walnut trim. They’re also loaded with options, like a six-disc CD changer, parking assistance and more, as a way to entice buyers. Unlike almost everything else we’ll be covering over the next few days, GM provided prices for all the 60th Anniversary Editions. The package is an $1,825 option on the 9-3 lineup and $1,595 on the 9-5 lineup.
