Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson
My dad had the opportunity to appraise the limited edition Saab 9-3 Aero
Carlsson during the week starting 17-Jan-2011. This is the first car from
the limited edition of 96 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Erik
Carlsson's first RAC rally win in a Saab 96.
This video is not a review and does the car no justice, though we thought
it a worthwhile last hour to have spent with the car. The intention is to
try and share what will one day become something of a collectable, a point
already proven by a BMW driver who tailgated us so he could record the car
over on his phone.
Unfortunately for me it was during a week of exams, which being both an
engineering student and the owner of a 6 year old Saab 9-3, I can honestly
say I have never had such a valid reason to procrastinate.
Just be sure to turn the volume up to max.!

~ 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 9-3. Beyond meatballs and home-assembled furniture, Sweden is also
known as the home of Saab cars, a brand that has prided itself on being
different. So for those who think Audis and BMWs are all too common on
Americas roadways, the Saab 9-3 offers a quirkier sports-luxury
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Saab 9-3.
Styling advances at Saab tend to be evolutionary, but take our word for it;
in addition to a host of interior and performance upgrades, the exterior of
the latest 9-3 has received more than a freshening. And Saab loyalists can
take heart that funky details like the signature center-mounted ignition
remain on the 9-3. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news
