This week’s SOTW belongs to Mattias Brelid from Sweden. It is a 9-5 ’07 who is fundamentally a Vector. Mattias worked hard to get a personal look on his 9-5, and I definitely think it’s a big success. I curiously asked some questions about how it all started, Mattias was more than happy to tell the story of his Saab, and it’s pretty obvious that Mattias put down a lot of time and passion in his 9-5. And he has every reason in the world to be proud of what he accomplished.
Here’s more information about Mattias SAAB:
“I had some time to kill one day and decided to check out cars at ANA in Trollhättan. I walked around in the showroms, and suddenly I noticed this car. I saw the potential it had and I just had to have it. It didn’t take long before I decided to buy it, and I’ve never regretted this decision. I like to add my own “personal touch” to the car, and I really did this time. There is only one and it’s mine!!!
Essantially a Vector 2.0, 360 brakes with 8-piston calipers and race pads. 330HP realcar prototype boxes. Splitters front and back, side skirts from Realcar. Suspension, grille and rims from Hirsch. Hirsch carbon fiber dash and associated cf door lists and shifter, this is the set that they only made 12 sets of, MapTun’s carbon fiber steering wheel, subwoofer enclosure with 2 × 10 in the trunk area. Will also add the carbon fiver shifter knob soon”

Wow, a lot of work went into this and it was worth it! This is a head turner—-very aggressive but at the same time, Saab refinement. Well done.
Suddenly, I find myself craving a Dame Edna 9-5. Nice.
Based on my experience, you can’t go wrong with a Dame Edna. Mattias’ is an especially nice package.
I am not a big fan of the Dame Edna, but this one is stunning!
I have the same color and model year 9-5 but that front spoiler is mind-blowing magnificent with an interior to match.
2nd Peter (and everybody else) — Exceptional! Kudos to Mattias. And that steering wheel: Objet d’art
