A Saab 9-3 Aero with the Viggen Body Kit is one of the rare vehicles on our roads. The Eros will become rarities in the next few years. The body kit from 9-3 Viggen makes the story even more exclusive. Friend Götz from Hamburg is one of the lucky owners of such a Saab.
Last winter, just like we did with our Silver Aero project, he was busy fighting the rust. Now the turbo Swede is on the road again and was visiting the Motorsport Arena in Oschersleben. Although, as Götz writes, the 9-3 Aero is not the fastest car on the track, but the most beautiful car in the paddock. Can I sign!
The 9-3 Aero rolls on the Alu 88 rims from Saab, which are very good for him. Optimized with NGK candles, Triboron and Ultimate 102 in the tank and Triboron in the oil, it runs really well. He is economical, relatively speaking. 230 Swedish turbo horses consume an average of 8.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. That in summer, with automatic air conditioning, traffic jams and always full acceleration. It's nice when you can also save on driving fun.
The topic Triboron, a typical Swedish innovation, will occupy us a bit more in the future. We will test what the additive can do and whether it really improves fuel efficiency and environmental footprint. Our Triboron endurance test will start soon, at the start is Mark, our frequent driver in the blog team with his Saab 9-3 TTID.
And there was something else. While the 9-3 Aero by Götz in Oschersleben cuts a fine figure, we are still working on improvements to our Aero. If you want to know how our Silver Aero project evolves, check out the Saab Youngtimer Blog.
