Alex Zabolotnyy from Moscow sent it to us pictures of his beloved modest car – Saab 9-5 Troll “DråkkåR”.

Alex is in his Saab 9-5 Troll put a lot of effort and work, which you can see from his photos.

Underneath its bonnet lies the original Saab 9-5 2.3-litre turbocharged engine you’ll find in any similar model.

  • Actually now it’s 234к of miliage, but still – it’s as smooth and solid as 13 years before.
    The key is TransGo shift kit, auxillary additional oil cooler (+thermostate), and frequen AFT oil re-changing (once in 12k).
