Saab 9000 at standing mile race

“Quick” and “fast” don’t mean the same thing, One is about acceleration and the other about top speed. This tuned Saab 9000 Aero is both, fast and quick, what the car showed on the track a few months ago at Halli, in Finland.

Speed hunters gather at this former military airport throughout the summer, and they all have the same goal – cross the length of one mile for as short a time as possible and with the highest output speed.

That was exactly how it was this June, on the Halli runway. Standing Mile is a competition or timed race over a distance of one mile from a standing start.

This heavily-modified Saab 9000 probably set the record for the fastest the standing mile Saab, hitting 305 km/h (190mph) from a dead stop.

The car was run by finish tuner, which Holset HX-40 super #14 turbocharged the 2.0 Aero engine (EV-14 1700cc injectors) to pump out approximately over 600 horsepower. This stunning 9000 remains fully stock in appearance but features a radically modified 2.0-liter Saab engine.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
