Cheapest performance car for under $5K - Saab 9000 track proven
Why a Saab 9000? I started this project when a 19 years old mate of mine
asked what beater to buy for under AUD$5K so that he can practice track
driving later. Since $5K is the total budget, there are only limited
choices available to a provisional licence driver in Australia.
Since not many people understand about Saab 9000 Aero therefore I decided
to make a demo. Saab had well over engineered this car at the time with its
engine capable to handle 500hp without touching internal parts. Standard
goodies include large Intercooler, BOV & oil cooler.
Here is the spec & cost summary:
Saab 9000 Aero, 225hp turbo FWD, 5speed
Bridgestone used RE002 tyres on stock 16" wheels $300
Koni adjustable shocks and unknown springs used $450
Stage 1 ECU
High flow cat installed
Yellowstuff brakepads $200
Oil change, hoses and labour $450
Driven 45+ fun laps and the Saab 9000 is still fine, no mechanical issue
whatsoever. No LSD or seat support is a pain though, gave my arms and abs a
This car is quirky and need to source parts from UK, at least it shows you
can still have fun with a relatively low budget.
Thank you to JDM Yard for organising this great event @ Wakefield Park
Also thank you to Proworks Automotive for helping me out with this build
Other cars attended the day included Honda Civic, Integra, S2000, Nissan
S13 , S14 & S15, Mitsubishi Evo 6 & 7 and Mazda MX5
~ 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.
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.
