Saab 9000 vs. Volvo 855 Drag Race

Maybe this is not the ultimate challenge between Saab and Volvo, but it is a great match to determine who is the king of Sweden, a match between Trollhattan and Stockholm. Behind the starting line, a Saab 9000 and a Volvo 855.
Saab 9000 was produced since 1985, born in partnership with Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo: from "project 4" the italians made Fiat Croma, Lancia Thema and Alfa 164.
Front wheel drive, indipendent damping, 4-straight engine from 135 hp up to 175 hp for the most powerful edition (with turbocharger and intercooler) were the main features characterizing the first Saab 9000.
From 1991, after a re-modelling, Saab produced the 9000 CS, exactily the car is competing in the video, more powerful, from 150 hp up to 200 hp.
Competing against a Volvo 855, the station wagon of model 850, first Volvo with 5-straight aluminium engine and front wheel drive. The power of this car, produced since 1992 until 1997, was from 140 hp up to 250 hp.
Talking about horse power, the two cars look similar, and the start of the drag race confirms this feeling.
But only one will win: Saab or Volvo?
