Default A fun little story about Saab

I found this little gem while looking through Wikipedia for Saab information today. I never knew 007 had a classic 900 .

I think the folks at 900 forum would enjoy this as well:

"Water-cooled turbo engine modification per Saab Law Enforcement specs, producing a top speed in excess of 170 MPH."

I wouldn't mind one of them, how fictional / real is that ?

It sounds like some special spec car Saab built for Swdish police?

Like the UK police spec Volvos and Vauxhalls got better spec engines that's not avalible to general public me thinks.

That bit is not fiction about the better specification. It's not the engine though, it's the ECU that is different on them. I don't know what power output is developed, but I have an ex police one and it's a nightmare trying to figure what to do with it... Would I be better getting shot of it (problem after problem) or try to restore it....

I've read two of the three, and the third is in the hatch of my car for when I have a bit of spare time, jolly good entertainment.

I've named my turbo "The White Beast". I thought about calling it "The Silver Beast", but I figured nobody would get it, expecially since it's white.

I'll just have to wait until I get a silver vert or spg.
