Top Gear (US) episode featuring the Viggen

Last week’s episode (season 3 episode 10) of Top Gear (US) featured a 150 mph challenge: Get to 150 mph in the cheapest vehicle possible.

A ’95 Trans-Am ($2600), ’94 Infiniti Q45 ($1700 + $700 nitro conversion…) and Tanner picked a 9-3 Viggen ($3500).

I’m not a fan of US Top Gear, but that episode was a lot of fun! SAAB Up, the Viggen is still awesome!
