Up to Speed – SAAB

 

“Fighter Jets! Turbochargers! Sweden! Put them all together and what do you get? SAAB! From building fighter planes in WWII, to making some of the safest cars on the road; SAAB embodies the Swedish can-do spirit and resolve. Join James Pumphrey as he tells you everything you need to know about the Saab”

TopGear tribute to SAAB

i hadn’t seen this “farewell” tribute in a while, so i wanted to put the links where i could find them. right now, the tribute is in 2 parts on the TopGear website.

Officially, it’s episode 5 of series 18. enjoy.

p.s. if it ever disappears from the BBC site, you can probably find it on youtube.
