9-5 Aero Hirsch for sale


Sometimes, life seems to overwhelm you and time becomes a distant memory. I’ve struggled to stay afloat with even the basic essentials, let alone the site, but another year, another opportunity to get back on track and motivated. This leads me to make a confession, I’m a diehard petrolhead, there, I’ve said it. Saabs are obviously deep rooted, but I also have other obsessions including an air cooled Porsche 911 which take time too. This obsession causes issues, parking for one, I already abuse the generosity of neighbours either side of our home, but have now spilled out onto the road, that’s not good, so at least one car has go.

The 9-5 Aero Hirsch was always a project Saab, I set out to right the wrongs on this great car and to ensure it lasted for at least another 10 years. I’ve spent over £1,500 sorting things out and although I haven’t got around to the final cosmetic stage, I just haven’t got the time or energy to finish it all off.

I won’t go in to all of the car’s details as I listed it for sale on EBay last night. It really is an exceptional Saab, ridiculously comfortable, relaxing, quiet, fast and pretty rare, I’ve only ever seen a handful of 9-5’s with this level of Hirsch kit on, it’s as close to a full Hirsch Troll R as you’ll get without it actually being one.

I’d toyed with the idea of transplanting the 18” alloys on to my Aero convertible, but decided I’d be good and leave it as a whole, not sure if that’s the right choice, but hej.

  1. I hope this special Saab would be cared properly and stay on the road for a while… In the post, an air cooled 911 was mentioned. I wonder if the author would shed a light on that iconic car, despite not a Saab. It would be interesting to hear how is that to own and drive a Porsche from the point of view of a Saab way enthusiast.

    • Hi Sergei thanks for your comment, surprisingly the 9-5 didn’t meet the reserve, so I now have other plans to take some parts from it for my 9-3 convertible. The Porsche could easily appear as a ‘Guest Car’ although it really is totally different from my Saabs. Saying that, one of the reasons I like it so much is from it’s iconic design perspective. I’ll see what I can do.

  2. Hi just stumbled across your site and have to say very impressed with your 9-5. I own a 2003 9-5 hirsch bought in Perth. It’s on google search with an interesting article for some light reading…… long live Saab and their owners ! Anthony
