This SAAB  arrived to Belarus from Pennsylvania USA. and It was a regular MY1999 Saab 9-5 SE in black color with a stock 2.3t engine and 170hp. Sergey is a second owner of it in Belarus. He is a professional car mechanic and Saab enthusiast, well known among all the SAAB owners in Minsk.

At First Sergey wanted to upgrade the car to a regular AERO with 230 Hp, but, as usual, –  it’s never enough… Currently, the car has 400 hp on the wheels and 660 Nm of Torque!
