The Stunning Saab 9-5 Troll R (300hp)

Saab 9-5 Aero Hirsch

With the right amount of money, knowledge, and patience, you can modify just about any car. Some take better to enhancements than others though, one of these cars is the Saab, and especially their 2.3 engine, from which more power can always be drawn.

Certain tuning companies such as Hirsch Performance, Maptun Performance, A-Z Performance or Abbott Racing offer Saab car owners upgrades in kit packages, which give even better results when combined. One such tuner combination was done by Mr. Martin from Taiwan on his 2009 Saab 9-5 (Mileage is 215,000km) which was an exceptional platform.

The owner, Mr. Martin, says: “My family gets a relationship with Saab for more than 20 years, a totally of 5 Saab cars from 9000, 9-5 to 9-3 CV. The priority consideration of buying a car for our family is safety, so we chose the Saab. Driving a Saab always can touch my heart and full “fun to drive”. I was often reluctant to get off the car while seating into the cabin of Saab as well as press the accelerator pedal. It also bothers me that which brand I can choose after Saab. So, I will keep my Saab alive as long as I can…..
