This was sent in as a Saab O The Week shot, though I’m more inclined to use it as a story of the week.
As much as I like the Saab 9-5 and as much as I adore Hirsch’s work, I don’t think the two necessarily gel in this shot. I’m not sure they’re the best wheels for this car, fine as it is.
This one is a 300hp Hirsch model, and was sent in by Andrew.
As mentioned, the car is very nice indeed, but it’s Andrew’s story that really got me hooked, and I’ve got to say that if you physically resemble me in any way, Andrew, then watch your back as there could be some identity theft going on in the near future.
I am a regular reader from the UK and am lucky enough to run the aftersales side of one of the biggest independent dealers in the country, Cambridge Saab.
That means i get to drive pretty much what i like and my car of choice is usually 9-5 Aero. This car is one that has sadly gone to a new owner (I usually get through 6-8 new cars a year) but it had the 300bhp hirsch upgrade and all the usual refinements. Needless to say a new car is on the way, this time in black with the Hirsch dust sprinkled over it. This should see me through to the Turbo X in spring.
This was one of my favourite shots of the car.
Andrew, you’re one heck of a lucky guy. Whatever it is that you UK Saabers are doing over there, keep doing it well. Thanks for the pic and making me eternally jealous.
Kaz, you now appear to have a rival in the vehicle turnover stakes!
