Lotus Omega vs Swedish police (Very high quality)
High quality video clip from the swedish police in pursuit of a speeding
Police car is an un-marked Saab 9-3 2.0t and therefore a bit slow.
I do not claim to own the rights to this movie, I just got annoyed that all
versions on youtube are either fast-frowarded or in very bad quality.
Although the driver of the Lotus got away in the pursuit, the police later
went to his home.
~ 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.
Saab 93ss vs Mustang Saleen
Just having some fun at the track. Not my best run. But I kept up with it
until the end :) (Bandimere Speedway 5800' above sea level)

AWD vs RWD
Notice the composure of the RWD cars around the corner, where the AWD Audi
and Evo X understeer wide despite identical entry speeds and identical
This test is very scientific and 100% conclusive.
For those complaining I am not ragging on AWD nor saying it is useless. All
I am saying is that in my opinion when a driver is looking for pure driving
enjoyment through twisty roads, RWD is superior.
