More Saab-at-Bonneville madness

Whilst our mate Bertil builds up his little Saab 96 for another run at Bonneville next year, I’ve just heard about another Saab that ran on the salt flats this year – at 147mph!!!

The story is over at Saabnet, and Ted Y brought it to my attention a few hours ago.

Saab 8600 Bonneville

Here’s the engine, which revved upward of 13,500rpm on the run 🙂

There’s a good catalog of images at Picasa as well as a soundtrack at Youtube.

Amazing. Just amazing.
