My dad had the opportunity to appraise the limited edition Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson during the week starting 17-Jan-2011. This is the first car from the limited edition of 96 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Erik Carlsson's first RAC rally win in a Saab 96.
This video is not a review and does the car no justice, though we thought it a worthwhile last hour to have spent with the car. The intention is to try and share what will one day become something of a collectable, a point already proven by a BMW driver who tailgated us so he could record the car over on his phone.
Unfortunately for me it was during a week of exams, which being both an engineering student and the owner of a 6 year old Saab 9-3, I can honestly say I have never had such a valid reason to procrastinate.
Just be sure to turn the volume up to max.!
Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the
bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this
video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes.
This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can
result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will
revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on
1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders***
A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and
ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police.
At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace.
At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t
have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit
continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a
chopper were involved in this chase.
A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the
fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he
slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The
rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped
with a Racefit Growler
Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
~ 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.

BRUTAL BMW E60 M5 meisterschaft acclerations - Powerslide, on board, revving, and more!
I recently had the incredible opportunity to do a photoshoot and get a ride
in this stunning blue BMW E60 M5. This particular M5 has a meisterschaft Exhaust system, which makes the V10
absolutely scream. A list of mods to this car include miestershaft gtc Exhaust, catless headers, turner
motorsport software, turner motorsport pulleys, hr lower springs, and 21in
BBS wheels. The combination of all those things create the most stunning M5
I have ever seen with about 570HP. Leave a comment letting me know how you
like the car, wheels, and acceleration sound, and remember to subscribe for
more insane car videos from the recent Greenwich Concours D'Elegance!
Finally, thanks to Drew for the awesome experience, and for lighting up the
tires at the end of the video :D
2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
