Hirsch Performance 9-5 Spring Promotion

Hirsch Performance has put together two very nicely priced packages for the 9-5 Sedan. I have spent quite a bit of time in their white 9-5, for example when driving to the SU Octoberfest and I have to say that the performance and the handling of that fully equipped car is absolutely breathtaking. If you want that complete package you have to be quick, only five units are still available…
For those who do not have a 9-5 or did not get a package – we offer the poster of that car on our SU shop and even at a 50% discount right now.

01. 9-5 Touring Package*



The package includes:
– Performance upgrade
– Stainless steel quad exhaust including diffuser
– Rear spoiler

The performance upgrade to 330 hp/430 Nm (Turbo6) and 260 hp/400 Nm (Turbo4) gives the driving experience a significant boost. True to Saab’s “responsible performance” claim, the Hirsch Performance upgrades are certified to the same emissions levels as the original car; Euro5 / CARB BinIILEV.
The Hirsch Performance stainless steel quad exhaust delivers a refined sound, with a character that alters from a sporty roar at full throttle to a sonourous sound during relaxed cruising, without ever becoming annoyingly loud. All exhaust components are flow-optimized to minimize pressure loss, improving the throttle response of the engine.
To top off the sporty look created by the brushed stainless steel exhaust bezels and the rear diffuser, this package also contains a rear spoiler. The deliberately subtle design still provides an effective reduction of unwanted lift on the rear axle, providing improved stability, especially at high speeds.
This package contains a highly attractive combination of parts at a price comparable with that of just the exhaust. Only a limited number of kits are available.

02. 9-5 Performance Package*

The Performance Package includes:
– Performance upgrade
– Complete aerodynamics package including side skirts, front and rear spoiler
– Stainless steel quad exhaust including diffusor
– Lowering kit (Turbo6 only)
– Forged rims, 9×20″

This package embodies the essence of the development work that Hirsch Performance has performed for the new Saab 9-5. The performance upgrades to 330 hp/430 Nm (Turbo6) and 260 hp/400 Nm (Turbo4) form the base also for this package.
To further improve the already exhilarating driving dynamics of the 9-5, the sportier spring setting lowers the car by 20 mm on the front and 10 mm on the rear axle, and is especially tuned to match the active suspension (DriveSense) perfectly. The lower center of gravity improves cornering stability and offers improved braking performance. The sports suspension is available for Turbo6 cars only.
The forged 9×20″ aluminium wheels in exclusive Liquid Titanium finish are extremely light at only 11 kgs, further enchancing handling.
Consisting of a front spoiler featuring an optimized air intake for improved cooling, side sills, a rear diffusor and a slender bootlid spoiler, the aerodynamics package adds a sporty look to the 9-5 while maintaining the characteristic look of the original design. Careful wind tunnel optimizing lead to impressive results: combined with the lowering kit the aerodynamic drag decreases by almost 5 percent. In addition to that, the lift is reduced by 70% on the front axle and 40% on the rear axle, leading to a significant improvement in high speed stability.
This package is completed by the stainless steel sports exhaust, which is accentuated by brushed stainless steel quad exhaust bezels that are both sporty and elegant.

Since the Performance version never entered regular production, a total of only 10 sets were produced, out of which 5 still are available. Seize the chance now to own one of only ten Saab 9-5 Hirsch Performance in the world.

At this point I’m waiting for deep discounts since they is no warranty to void at this point.

You will not see any deep discounts since there will probably be no more parts, so whats left is whats left and then it’ll be gone and you’ll not be able to get anything…

The Hirsch packages look great, but what if you buy a package and need a replacement part in the future?

What about just engine software – this that also limited stock?

I don’t like the rear spoiler. I think this could be a little bigger like the one the Maptune has. Even if there are only a few left, check out Maptun and Realcar.se they have kits similar and some are even better than this.

Hirsch tested the aerodynamics in the Daimler wind tunnel / Stuttgart in 2011.
The rear spoiler reduces the lift force with 67%.

A few months ago, I had a white (with an amazing matt black roof) 9-5 TTiD4 Aero for a few days on loan from my dealer http://elevencreative.wordpress.com/2011/08/26/in-possession-or-maybe-possessed-by-a-saab-9-5-aero/

The same car is now for sale http://usedcars.gb.saab.com/dealer/bond-street-saab/602433896-56201.aspx?srcmdc=se_de_re_

This morning, the Hirsch email dropped into my Inbox, and made me go all weak.

It has to be a sign; swap my 9-3 for the 9-5 and go get the full Hirsch performance package (I think my wife would kill me).

Only £20k for this baby. I live in the wrong country!!!
Get the car, take a looong drive home and if your wife won’t approve, maybe it’s time to turn HER in… 😉
(hope she’s not on here lurking)

Haha, she’s already let me swap her BMW for another SAAB, and then I managed to squeeze a classic 900 Convertible on the drive too. Don’t think I could hide a gleaming white 9-5 Aero with 20′ Hirsch alloys from her for long.

Besides, the SAAB guys that are selling the 9-5 spent nearly 3 weeks adding Hirsch extras to my 2011 9-3, so they probably wouldn’t let me swap it either 🙂

£20k though, soooo tempting.

@ Eleven you should promote your blog….. and yes that 9-5 would cost AUD 60k…

baas900i thanks, the blog is only something I enjoy, a combination of photography SAAB’s and writing, but any form of promotion is always great, I like other people to enjoy it too.

I wish someone would just buy the 9-5, then I wouldn’t want it as much 🙂

Just have to tell that I just bought a Hirsch exhaust system to our 9-3SS 2.0T. Yes, it was expensive, but worth every penny. My SAAB dealer took care of all. What a great look and sound – pure eargasm!! I can highly recommend doing this. It was like getting a new car – just awesome!

Cheers from Norway!

Always on the longets road home when out there with my SAABs. Always!

I have the 330hp on my 9-5 2.8T and it has transformed the car,as well as my driving experience It accelerates so fast that I unfortunately received a speeding ticket for for 80+MPH by the CHP, lucky for me I was able to slow down from the 110MPH before they could clock/pace me. The performance improvement is addicting like cigarettes as i now want to use it any time I am on the highway, it is so very smooth and powerful. It is like going from 3G to 4G on your cell phone Next I plan to reconfigure the tail-lamp… Read more »

I am not sure about the new 9-5. I have a 07 9-5 Aero and I am waiting for a DIC replacement and the dealer is having a hard time finding the part. They think it will only get tougher and they said they will no longer sell any used Saabs at their dealerships. They are a big one too.

@ troy i thought the same when i was rear ended but new replacement parts were not a problem and Saab was/is a very small pea in Australia…
