This Saab 900 Was Built to Last
On a brisk Utah morning, at the base of a ski resort, we spent some time
with a Saab 900 SPG. Owner, Jordan Melville, dives into his love for Saab,
detailing how he brought this 900 back from the brink of the wrecking yard
to experience the car as if it were brand new.While modern day Saab
struggles to keep their cars on the road, Jordan's 900 SPG keeps the flame
~ 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.

This video of 2,5 minutes is a tribute to one of the most beautiful cars
there is: the Saab 900 classic. In this little video you'll see a couple:
the black Saab 900 CV (cabrio) full turbo (205 PK/horsepower) from 1992 and
the black Saab full turbo GT from 1993.
The Saab GT is very rare; there are not much GT's left.
