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

~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.
Aero vs 335i
This is some cruising on autobahn, A7, Filmed from a SAAB 9-3 Sportsedan
Aero, 2,8l V6 turbo with 280hp and 350Nm
of torque. Duelling the stronger BMW 335i coupe with a inline 6 3.0l twin
turbo with 306hp and 400Nm of torque.
Even though the BMW is much stronger the SAAB has no problem keeping up
with the more expensive BMW.
