2011 Saab 9-3 SRT10 MegaPower

Saab may be on the short stick – again - as far as their future is concerned, but some of their models still find a way to make the news and try to move the spotlight away from their tumultuous future into something a little more optimistic.

In this case, the question has to be posed: who knew that you could take a Saab 9-3 , strip it down to its bare essentials, build the whole puzzle back together, and fit in an 8.4-liter V10 engine that comes courtesy of a Dodge Viper SRT10 ?

You read that whole paragraph right, folks. The word’s ‘Saab’ and ‘SRT’ are coming together for a very revealing customer project. The final model, which is being called the ‘9-3 SRT SRT 10 MegaPower’, came from the mind of one Zaccho Pelle, who wanted nothing more than to turn his Saab 9-3 Estate from an otherwise mundane wagon into a Viper SRT10-powered, 600-horsepower piece of automotive madness.

Full details on the Saab 9-3 SRT10 MegaPower after the jump.

As we’ve said, the whole project involved stripping the whole chassis of the 9-3 bare and building it back up from scratch. The engine compartment had to be redone because, well fitting an SRT10 engine on a Saab 9-3 is far easier said than done. The transmission tunnel was also broken apart and fitted back together and the body and chassis had to get suspension reinforcements for the power to bounce off. The car appears to still be far from being complete, but from the looks of it, this 9-3 Estate has made a complete 180. No longer will it be confused for a soccer practice car, with a Viper SRT SRT 10 engine under its hood, you’d be lucky if you can even make out its plates after it blasts past you out on the road.

It’s truly they’re just hanging by a thread right now. But frankly, I must admit that they are making good vehicle. It’s just that they are in a very bad status.

It still looks good on its matte color. Moreover, I’m so impressed with the whole packaged that it can offer, but Charles Vince is right. It only looks heavy on that platform.

Come to think of it, this just one of only a few performance packages that they release for hatches nowadays. I hope they could add more packages like this one.

One thing that I don’t like about this car is the way they lowered it, makes it look rather heavy. Overall however, I do like the features that they have included in this one.

Well now, the name MegaPower certainly befits this one. There are only a few hatches that would be able to deliver that much power. They really did a great work here.

Yeah, that one is definitely the biggest draw with this package. I really am surprised that they were actually bold enough to use the SR10 engine on the car.

The car still look a bit odd to me. But what the heck, I love what they did to the whole thing. I just can’t imagine a hatch with that much power under the hood.

Wow, for a hatchback, this one really looks rather cool. Those wheels surprisingly fits in nicely with the whole package. Good thing that they did a major engine upgrade too.

That’s madness! Can you do the same for my 2002 Oldsmobile Alero? smiley
