Tiburon GT vs. Scion tC vs. Aura XR
Went to meet a guy to sell him something and decided to setup a run. He's
been wanting to run his 07 Scion tC (160hp) against mah Tibbay (172hp) for
a while now. I told a another buddy of mine and he wanted to bring out his
new DD to hav fun; an 07 Saturn Aura XR (254hp), very nice car.
All 3 cars are bone-to-tha-muthafkn-stock as can be. Hopefully I'll be able
to mod the Tib in the near future though. In case you can't tell from the
vid the Aura stays even with me from a 25mph roll (I pull 1/2 car a head
when we do a 30mph) and then pulls me by 1/2-1 car above 90mph. I also beat
the tC in every scenario, even the last one where I had a bad launch. Enjoy
the video (and yes that song was put in there for shits and grins cuz these
aren't 800hp Supras racing so they don't deserve cool music).

With a void left by the L300 sedan, which saw the axe in 2005, Saturn needs
a strong player in the competitive midsize sedan segment in order to
justify its existence. It needs the new 2007 Saturn Aura to be a Mr. Wolfe.

This video was shot early on in 2008. Yes, he's a friend of mine. The
acting (if you can call it that) is us just messing around before battery
on the camera died. It was all done on the spot - no script - and the
racing was both cars going all out 100%. The Camaro has been 11.5's@122. Not
the fastest car on the road (by far), but enough to hold it's own with most
For those in complete & utter denial - doubting that the Civic was actually
turbo'd - here is the same car with a
duck call attached to the blow-off valve as a joke:
Limit Pushing - 2007 Saturn Aura XR 0-60 Test
This is just one of the many cases of too much power in a FWD car. It was
so hard to get traction, but it all worked out on the 4th try.
The Saturn Aura:
The Saturn Aura was introduced in 2005 for the 2006 model year to replace
the Saturn L-Series. Saturn had never intended to use the Aura Concept
name for production, but the name ended up sticking as a result of its
popularity. The Aura's design was produced under several different names
including the Fiat Croma, the Cadillac BLS, the Chevrolet Malibu, the
Pontiac G6, the Opel Insignia, the Opel Signum, and the Opel Vectra, Saab
9-3. The Aura marked the first time since the 70's that GM's German
division Opel had products sold in the United States. The XR trim of the
Aura utilized the concept's 252 hp 3.6 L V6. The XE trim made use of a 3.5
L V6 which makes 219 hp. An eco minded trim named the Greenline uses a
hybrid 164 hp 2.4 L I4. The Aura was discontinued after the 2009 model year
due to the Saturn division's termination by GM.

FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Saturn Aura. The Saturn Aura sedan points to a new direction for not only
the Saturn brand, but for General Motors. Like the Saturn SKY roadster that
preceded it, the Aura demonstrates that General Motors is putting renewed
emphasis on its passenger cars to fend off the ferocious competition of the
import nameplates. With some key help from GMs European operations, the
Aura is significantly more refined inside, outside and on the road than its
GM cousins. And it matches up well against such top competitors as the
Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Saturn Aura.
While Saturn is putting more excitement into its cars, it has committed to
maintaining its popular "no haggle" pricing policy. For more new car
