Volvo S40 vs. Saab 9-3
The classic debate in Sweden (and for everybody who loves Swedish cars) is about who is the better between Saab and Volvo. And this video is a great example of this great rivalry, with a car of Gothenburg against a Trollhättan one.
For the Saab, out of business from few years, is competing a 9-3 first generation, with many stages of updates and tunings: modified by the Nordic Performance team, this car reaches the 500 horse power and has an unusual colored body.
The opposing is a Volvo S40, in which there are seated the driver and the cameraman (so, there are about 80 kg or 175 lbs of additional weight) that records this running drag race. Also the car from Gothenburg is not as it left the factory and had passed different improvement, all made by the Autotech team. After their great work, the Volvo S40 has a power of 475 hp.
So, the difference between the two engine is close, in favour of the Saab, and also the absence of a second person inside the cockpit is an advantage for the car on the left. All those things should be contemplate at the end of the drag race, that starts running at the speed of 100 km/h (62 mph) and is really really uncertain.
