Default More pics of the BSR B3 ... large file warning!

Thought that I could share some pictures of the BSR B3 from Elmia Custom Show here in Sweden.

Enjoy...

Very nice, the car looks mean with the drop and the 19" BBS CH wheels .

Man, I want those Porsche brake calipers

I like the little carbon fiber lip touches too (not so hot on the spoiler but I guess it serves a purpose). Interesting to see they are running a 3" cat-back system too.

It serves a purpose, not like the smucks that drive around in their 90 Accord with one of those.


Nice pics, I love the looks of the 19's.

thats what i mean. if your racing the car (which i assume they are) then sure, but if its just a show car, they could have done better. (spoiler)

I am not sure this is just a show car. This car is probably what got our PPC's to the market. Its a freakin test car!!! Which can be put in a show!!

I would have to see the wing in person to be sure, but from the photo I am fairly certain that it is set up as "neutral" => no force created either up or down. Most wings of this type will cost you a few mph at the top end, but if adjusted for neutral, will not affect the handling. This would not surprise me; I have had my Vector up to 118mph and the tail (along with the rest of the car) was solid as a rock.

It seems too tall to simply be a "von Karmann" foil (drag reduction device). But if it has any intentional effect at all, that is what I would bet on.

Most street wings on front wheel drive cars are adjusted by their clueless owners to create considerable downforce - at high speeds, this moves the center of pressure rearwards AWAY from the drive wheels. Not a good thing, for most front drivers. This is especially amusing on fwd cars on the drag strip!

On the street, this kind of stuff just screams "poseur".

did a search and a company called apr performance (aprperformance.com) will apparently make you a custom front splitter if you trace your front bumper outline on a piece of cardboard and mail it to them. cost $340 + shipping or something BUT there might not be enough meat under the aero lip for fastening. think i read they need 3-4" of flat surface. sure there are others available from someone, too bad the saab is uncommon enough that there aren't premade ones readily available.
