Drive It! took a real rarity onto the race track: a front-wheel-drive Saab 900 turbo boasting 300 horsepower with a peak torque of 500 Nm. This Saab is a real competition car. Trimmed down to a weight of around one ton it can feel at home on any circuit. Amateur racing driver Nico Gasparatos shows what the Saab can do.
Vintage: Citroen SM | drive it
When the Citroen SM was first presented in 1970, it looked like a car from
a different planet. No carmaker had ever built a mass-production vehicle
with such striking lines or aerodynamic contours. And the 170hp Maserati
engine under its hood rocketed the SM to 225 km/h. Georg Johannes from
Düsseldorf is a big fan of the model.His 1971 SM has 250,000 km on the
odometer, and he still takes it touring.
Compare it! Alfa Romeo Spider vs. BMW Z4 | drive it
These are two of the most extravagant 2-seater sports cars around. Elegant
and exceptional in design. We're talking about the Alfa Romeo Spider and
the BMW Z4. Both have an ice-cold air about them. Speed should be the
deciding factor, but which top opens quicker and which car has more storage
space? Drive It! puts both cars through their paces.
Vintage -- the Peugeot 403 convertible | drive it
The Peugeot 403 convertible made its debut at the 1956 Paris Motor
Show.Visitors were overwhelmed by its marriage of Italian class with French
elegance. The body styling was done by the legendary experts at
Pininfarina. Typical for the pontoon form were the bulge on the hood and
the suggestion of fins at the rear with the vertical rear lights. In total
some 1.2 million Peugeot 403s were built --- although only 2,000 of them
were convertibles. Probably the most famous one was the car driven by Peter
Falk in his role as lieutenant Columbo.
Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the
kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and
vintage rally dude.
On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two
stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to
850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex
"Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs
added) fully ported intake and Exhaust
ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear

More Problems With the 2000 Saab 9-3 (Smoking, Test Drive, etc.)
Well many of you have seen all the other videos on this car and seen that
we replaced the turbo in it a little
while ago. After sitting for an extended period and battling to get it
started with a dead battery, when I took it for a drive it started smoking,
more and more. Today, 1 day later after I drove it, we started it up and
no smoke was to be found. Weird, we'll have to check it out more to make
sure everything is right with it. but like I said, today, everything was
totally fine so idk if the oil/gas mixture got screwed up or something from
sitting so long with little to no gas in it (had to fill it up before the
drive) or what. We shall see I guess! Let me know what you guys think!
