This video shows just how effective the Saab Electronic Stability Program is on the 2003 and newer 9-3 models.
The video is in Swedish, but basically the first part is with the ESP off and the next is with it on.
~ 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.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Revealed
The federal government estimates this new technology will save more lives
than the airbag!
ESC is so efficient in keeping your car on the road that Farmers Insurance
even gives a discount on your auto policy if it is installed on your

What happens to a Lamborghini Gallardo when you switch traction control off?
Is it wise to turn off the ESP stability control? Steve Sutcliffe proves
even a Lamborghini Gallardo can spin easily.

You are driving along, and it seems like a fun idea to reach for your car's
ESP stability control button, so it's just you in control of machine. But
is it a wise idea? Steve Sutcliffe decided to find out, driving the hugely
grippy and stable, four-wheel drive 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo supercar.
Despite its amazing performance figures, he found that even at moderate
motorway speeds, an awful lot could go wrong, very quickly indeed.

Saab 93 Turbo X quick drive
I fall in love with this car everytime I drive it. For people who hate
Saab, drive one. I'm sure you'll change your mind.
Beautiful Swedish car, SAAB 9-5.
I am really into SAAB cars; I own a 2003 9-3 that I am very fond of. I put
together this video, from different clips, for the new Saab 9-5. I think
the new 9-5 is very stylish in design and sporty in performance. I am
seriously considering buying one and when I do I will be sure to make a
video to share how I feel about Saab's great cars
