Welcome to back to UCBW folks! I’m sorry about the inactivity – I’ve been SUPER busy. I’ve got lots of posts lined up for this new week. Anyway, we’re back in Sweden for week 8 – with the 2006 Saab 9-3 Aero, a sporty drop top. This gem is listed for $11,990.
Saab basically invented and popularised the turbocharger and put it all over their range – this 9-3 Aero is no different. Under the bonnet is a 2.8L turbo V6 producing 184kW and 350Nm, pushing it to 100 in 6.7 seconds all the way to a top speed of 212km/h. This particular 9-3 is has a 6 speed auto and has done 130,000km, moderate for its age.
What you guys think? Would you buy up into a great example of one of the last cars of one of the world’s best automakers? I would – let me know your thoughts!
