I guess this is why they don’t make a car badged as a Viggen anymore…..
During all the hoopla surrounding the unveiling of the Aero-X and the Biopower Hybrid, there was also another bunch of Saab releases – from Hirsch, Saab’s official performance partner based in Switzerland.
First up, they’ve released what they’re calling their best performance upgrade ever – the new kit for the 2006 9-5 Aero. How’s a hefty 300hp and 400Nm sound?
This new performance upgrade consists of a modified air intake, optimised intercooler, uprated fuel pressure regulator, sport catalyst, polished stainless steel exhaust system, and optimised software. The excellent response and low-end torque of the original configuration is retained, and maximum reliability and durability ensured through extensive testing…..
and I love this –>
….For safety reasons, this performance upgrade is sold together with upgraded brakes.
In addition to the new 9-5 Aero upgrade, Hirsch have also released their 9-5 diesel engine upgrade, offering 175hp and a whopping 370Nm of torque.
Finally, there’s the impending arrival of their new 18 inch wheels, which should land at Hirsch in a few weeks time. Here’s a rendering of them on a very nice looking black 9-3 SportCombi, which you can click to enlarge just a little.
