2008 Saab 9-3 Convertible Hirsch Edition (DE)
Swiss tuner Hirsch Performance has revealed a new tuning program for the Saab 9-3 Convertible.
Sporting a new aerodynamics package and an engine upgrade, the 2008 Saab 9-3 Convertible Hirsch Edition takes only 6.4 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100km/h and achieves a top speed of 260km/h (162mph).
The tuned vehicle, company says in its press release, comes equipped with a powerful 2.8-liter V6 engine that has its power rating increased by 20hp to 300hp and its peak torque raised to healthy 400Nm.
To tame this extra power, Swiss tuner also introduced a lowered sport suspension and a set of high performance 345mm (13.46in) brakes hidden inside sporty 19-inch wheels available in either satin silver or matte black.
The aerodynamics kit includes a new three-part mesh grille, a front splitter and a rear diffuser with a pair of holes for two huge tailpipes.
The Hirsch Edition model will be officially available only in Germany.
