Thursday Night Snippets – Gomez edition

Get myself arrested is one of my favourite tunes of all time and I’m pretty sure you’ll be singing it after watching this video from the Brussels Motor Show.

It’s not often that Victor Muller is upstaged in a video, but I think it’s fair to say it’s happened here. It’s in Dutch, but don’t let that stop you.

The video also features the wonderful Sofie from Saab, which is a surprise as she’s usually a behind-the-scenes type. Wonderful to see her out and about as she does so much hard work there in Belgium.

Speaking of VM, Saabworld has come across a great story about his little dinghy, which you can hire if you’ve got some spare change and want to drift around the Caribbean during the winter.

Click here for more pictures of The Highlander (there can be only one VM, right).

And whilst we’re covering VM and extravagant things, let’s move sideways to Spyker. It seems the rumours were true: they’re ditching the Audi powerplant for a 6.2litre LS9 engine out of the Corvette for the C8 Aileron Spyder.

Grunty, with craftsmanship.

Congratulations to Till72, another one of our regulars here at SU, who’ll be off to the Ice Hotel at Saab Germany’s invitation for the Saab Ice Experience.

Rumour has it that another occasional SU contributor might be heading up there, too.

Add those to Sappy who won a trip from SaabGB last week and it’s going to be a regular SU party up there!

It’s interesting that reader opinions seem to be divided over which engine should be the one to power the Saab 9-5 SportCombi in the US.

It’s a no-win situation for SCNA if you ask me.

Luke Lewis, the guy who organised the reportedly resplendent autumnal drive through Connecticut back in November is planning another one.

This time it’s a trek around Rhode Island, on Saturday, March 12th.

Interested parties should check out the Facebook page for the event.
