9-3 Aero not in a million years, never heard of an Abbot tuned Saab, but until recently the fastest production car in the world (in top end) was a 9ff 911 that got 250mph and would be suprised if you could squeeze that much power out of a Saab lump.

Depends how you drive it! I can get 36 out of my Saab on a good run & hit 16mpg when I'm eating 911's for breakfast. Depends who's driving - Jeckal or Hyde.

That must be chipped by Prodrive!or are you racing 1970 911sc's

Still wouldn't touch a 911 or even a Boxster S, but they can work wonders to Saab powerplants and sort the chassis's out as well -all Hot saabs are FWD and particulary the 9-5 would tourque steer you into the nearest lamp post well before you left the forecourt
Fastest production car at the moment is the Buggati Veryon I believe, are you sure the 911 that hit 250mph was a production car that you could go out and buy and drive home legally on public roads, not a tuned one off?

I stand corrected Donuts, I thought you knew your Porkers, 231mph was the record. However, that was only because the Mclaren F1 was out of production and that did 241.1mph

Bugatti may be fast but so is the Ultima - and a damn sight cheaper as well.

Holds the current 0-100-0mph record.

May venture towards a CanAm version shortly - fancy building one myself but even the kit is 60,000 - or at least the spec I want is!!!

Watch the vids -very impressive - no fancy electronics and yet just a hint of wheelspin - a real drivers car.

I've seen some chaved up scrap in the Sowlint area also! Here in West Sussex we prefer the more executive models.
