Superior Saab 9-5 2.3 Turbo ARC “Black and White”

Many Saab car owners have already done some tuning on their car or are planning it. Quite simply, performance is never enough, everyone is working hard to increase quite a lot of horsepower and increase their torque. Exactly in this blog we mentioned extreme Saab projects, with enthusiasts who drastically increased the power of their cars, such as the most powerful Saab Diesel with 315hp, or petrol with a staggering over 600hp (Saab 9-5 or Saab 9-3).

In addition to boosting power, many beautify the exterior and interior of the Saab car; perform complete or partial painting of the exterior of the car, or, for example, dress the interior into high-quality leather. Also, some elements and parts of the car are further converted into carbon fiber elements.

“Black and White” Saab 9-5 Project Car

In this blog post we present you an interesting Saab 9-5 project in which a car owner once invested a lot of time in engine tuning, but extra time and effort in styling the car to his liking.

This is really a rolling project, this enthusiast always has something new to do on his car. In due time, we found him on the Swedish website for car enthusiast “Garaget” where he presented the latest activities related to working on a car.

Over 300 horsepower

At that moment, the last thing he did on the car was change of rims and installation of a brand new carbon fibre roof. Neither is the engine neglected, famous Saab’s 2.3-liter petrol engine is tuned by Maptun Performance and modified to ethanol, with these modifications the power was increased to impressive 320 Hp/450Nm, the “dame edna” chrome is painted white.

“Black and White” stylization

  • Appears he removed the Saab badge from the back of the car. Can’t tell make or model from rear view. I would never agree with doing that.
