How ’bout we all use Big-Boy numbers? … i.e. the SI (metric) system.

If you want SI then the top speed is 75 m/s 😉

Looks like it could take on a Bimmer M3. Wonder what the 0-60mph is?

I hate, just hate to side with BMW but the stock M3 has top speed of 178 with the 155 rev limiter disabled and is no doubt faster 0-60. And if you want to compare tuned cars the M3 GTS will further blow the doors off the Hirsch’d 9-5 – but at well over twice the cost. But who honestly cares about a top speed above 135 MPH really? It has to be the most useless bit of specification published to sell cars. The Saab will have plenty of power (torque) when it’s needed for spirited driving and get better… Read more »

yeah you’re right coggs. I drove an M3 for about a year, but I didn’t really find it that enjoyable and the controls and clutch were kind of heavy. Guess I’m too soft. The 9-5 is roomier too. I’d get one with a top of the line Escort radar detector built in front and rear to take on the fuzz.

I cannot understand that so many people want top speed much more than 200 km/h. Very few of us will be able to use it. It’s the same with acceleration 0 – 100 km/h. It’s much better if it is good in the range of 60 – 140 km/. Of course if you every now and then can use race track as Nürburgring or similar I can understand that you want a high-power car. This weekend we have had many traffic accidents in Sweden. Four people were killed when they in a stolen sports-car crashed into a tree and the… Read more »

I’m more or less in agreement (though I hope to go faster than my personal best of 245 kph this summer on the autobahn), but there’s also the question of reaching 200 kph in a reasonable amount of time. 😉
