Koenigsegg Agera R - On the road
One of the first shots of the Agera R on public roads! - The Agera R has
all the features and functionalities of the Agera, but also features a few
more unique solutions to further enhance performance even further. The
Agera R has an upgraded fuel and engine management system that has enough
flow capacity to generate 1115 hp and 1200 nm of torque on E85 and E100 bio
fuel. As there is less energy content per given volume in these bio fuels
compared to normal petrol, the fuel-system has to manage a flow that is
similar to 2000 petrol hp, which means that the return less fuel system of
the Agera R has the highest capacity of any car presently in production.

~ 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 PhoeniX concept revealed in Geneva
A year after gaining independence from GM, Saab is rising from the ashes
with the stunning PhoeniX concept.
Penned by Jason Castriota, the PhoeniX wears Saab's new Aeromotional design
language which incorporates aircraft-inspired styling elements. Notable
highlights include butterfly doors, winglets, a twin-ripple hood, LED
'ice-block' headlights, and a distinctive front fascia which will likely
been seen on future production models.
According to Castriota, "The PhoeniX establishes a new reference point for
the future of Saab product design. It symbolizes a renaissance of the
innovative spirit and passion that drove Saab to build its first car. We're
now taking the visual DNA forward with what we call 'aeromotional' design,
adding emotion, power and fluidity."
No interior pictures were released, but Saab says the cabin has a
minimalist design with a 2+2 seating arrangement and an
afterburner-inspired instrument cluster. More notably, the concept features
an Android-based IQon infotainment system which can download third-party
apps via the internet.
Under the hood, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine that develops
200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) of torque. It is backed up
by a rear axle electric motor (dubbed eXWD) which churns out 34 PS (25 kW /
34 hp) and gives the car an all-wheel drive system. Thanks to this setup,
the concept can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and hit an
electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). More importantly,
Saab estimates the PhoeniX will have a combined fuel consumption of
5.0L/100 km (56.5 mpg img / 47 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.
Something happened on the way to the museum
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
