END OF THE SAGA
Fans of TV series The Bridge will no doubt have been fighting over the 1977 Porsche 911S driven by the seriesʼ central protagonist, offbeat detective Saga, which was being offered for sale by Bonhams auction house. The sale took place at the Festival of Speed Sale on 13 July at Goodwood, with proceeds going to international charity Wateraid courtesy of the producers of the hit series, Filmlance, part of Endemol Shine Group, and Nimbus Films.
Since it first appeared in the series, the identity, origin and specification of the car have been subject to widespread debate. Even the precise colour code of the paint job has generated significant speculation. Now we can reveal that the car was imported to Sweden from San Francisco in 2009 and is finished in Jäger Grun.
Lars Blomgren, Anders Landström and Bo Ehrhardt, creators of The Bridge said, ʻWe are very happy that The Bridge will finish its successful UK journey with the sale of Saga Norén's Porsche and that we are able to donate the money to a cause as important as Wateraid.ʼ www.wateraid.org
