Saab 9-5 Gets Tuning From Hirsch

Although Saab is undergoing serious financial issues lately, Swiss tuner Hirsch has recently tuned the Saab 9-5 flagship sedan to include a Scandinavian sport Aerokit. The package consists of a rear diffuser, side skirts, a spoiler mounted on the trunk and a new front fascia with a racing look. 20-inch alloy wheels round out the exterior. No changes were made under the hood, but Saab already offers several engine options.

The first is a 2.0-liter TiD diesel that ranges in power from 160hp and 258 lb-ft of torque to 180hp and 295 lb-ft and is mated to either a manual or automatic transmission. It can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 9.6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 136 mph. The second engine is a 2.0T BioPower Turbo4 that produces 260hp and 295 lb-ft with a top speed of 155 mph and can go from 0-62 in 7.8 seconds with the automatic and 7.2 with the manual. Finally, the 2.8-liter V6 Turbo6 delivers an output of 330hp and 317 lb-ft with a top speed of 162 mph and can accelerate from 0-62 in a cool time of 6.1 seconds.
