It’s an Saab 9-3 ‘04 Arc, so that meant it could be (and is) equipped with F40 6-speed and the B207R engine. The idea for this car was to make it as light as possible, while retaining the factory look. It is important to keep upgrades simple and proven.
One goal of this build was to make sure that those who want some more performance out of their street 9-3SS have access proven and tested Saab performance products available through eEuroparts.com.
eEuroparts team end (lofty) goal is to try to get together a spec Saab 9-3 racing series where everyone can pick up an old Saab 9-3ss for cheap, convert it into a great race car, and meet up with like minds on their local race track with an even playing field of competition.
