Remarkably, but his is the World’s fastest streetlegal Saab. Street legal & used for legla sanctioned open road (highway) racing like the Silver State Challenge in Nevada with a confirmed trap speed of 208 MPH (335km/h) at the Big Bend Open Road Race in 2006 (Fort Stockton, Texas). The Big Bend Open Road Race (BBORR), held on an isolated stretch of Texas highway between the towns of Fort Stockton and Sanderson. The first event was held in this West Texas community in 2002, when a dedicated group of enthusiasts, in conjunction with the aforementioned towns and their respective authorities, legally closed down the state highway for a day and turned open-road racing on its ear.

Definitely not real Saab, but still really so crazy looking thing, and Who said SAABs aren’t really that fast?
