Yamaha R1 vs Police (SAAB 9-5 Aero)
*** EDIT: The officer driving the police car was later sentenced to pay a
ticket, 19.000 SEK (€ 2000 // $ 2850). The reason was he didn´t obey
order to abort pursuit and he didn´t had the permission to cut the bike
Video from Sweden. An unmarked police car chases an Yamaha R1 -01. Seems
like the police doesn´t use their sirens. The driver of the police car was
later charged for not obey order. 6.34 he receives the order to abort the
pursuit. And yes, the guy on the R1 didn´t have the skills to keep the
Volvo S60R AWD 300HP vs Saab 9-5 Aero Abbott 300HP 80-250+ Acceleration
Saab launches with traction control on but S60R naturally launches much
better with the help of AWD. With better torque and less power loss on the
wheels against S60Rs AWD system, Saab with Abbott ECU just kills S60R until
220 kmh. Then R comes back into play again. This Volvo was my new purchase
to replace the Saab 9-5 Wagon but I kept the Saab instead. My plans to make
R faster was abandoned after
reading some issues with the angle gear weakness issues and Volvo never
addressed this expensive fix.
