~ 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 9000 Turbo - Documentary
The Saab 9000 is a large executive car that was produced by the Swedish
company Saab from 1984 to 1997. Representing the company's foray into the
executive car scene, the 9000 remained in production until it was replaced
by the Saab 9-5 in late 1997.
Saab designed the 9000 as part of the Type Four platform in conjunction
with the Italian automaker Fiat Automobiles. Fiat retailed similar
derivative versions as the more basic Fiat Croma, the luxury-themed Lancia
Thema, and the sports-oriented Alfa Romeo 164. Unlike the 164, which shares
only the chassis, the Croma and Thema are outwardly similar to the 9000. As
such, much of the bodywork appeared interchangeable between the 9000, Croma
and Thema; for example, the doors. However, because Saab fitted heavier
side impact protection they will not fit. Only seven
different parts are actually interchangeable. The 9000's body was
designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Saab designer Björn Envall.
Despite being shorter overall than the 900, the 9000 had a longer wheelbase
and greater interior space, and was the first Saab vehicle imported to the
United States to be classed as a "large car" by the EPA.
