<strong>Saab</strong> is our passion<br />

At <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> we work exclusively with <strong>Saab</strong> cars and have done so from the very start, back<br />

in 1967. This reveals our passion for <strong>Saab</strong> and what we do. It also points to the expertise we possess<br />

when it comes to upgrading <strong>Saab</strong> cars. It is also why we can promise to add a unique driver and<br />

ownership experience to your <strong>Saab</strong>. From the <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> development centre in Switzerland,<br />

we offer you a full range of performance upgrades and sporty accessories.<br />

Long heritage<br />

Originally established in 1967 as a <strong>Saab</strong> dealership, we have<br />

four decades of <strong>Saab</strong> experience. We are based in St. Gallen<br />

and have grown to become a <strong>Saab</strong> competence centre with<br />

activities that stretch far beyond the borders of Switzerland.<br />

Remaining a relatively slim and agile organisation, our way<br />

of doing things continues to be characterised by speed<br />

and flexibility.<br />

Exclusively <strong>Saab</strong><br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> is the sole official partner of <strong>Saab</strong><br />

Automobile for performance upgrades worldwide.<br />

Premium quality<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> offers a high-quality range of performance<br />

upgrades and accessories. We pride ourselves on extreme<br />

attention to detail and on unrelenting commitment to the<br />

tradition of Swiss quality.<br />

High-tech innovation<br />

Our design philosophy is perhaps best described as controlled<br />

evolution. By this we mean an innovative approach to sharpening<br />

and refining every aspect of performance. It is really an<br />

extremely controlled art, one that requires not only long<br />

experience but also the latest technology.<br />

How we work<br />

We start with a <strong>Saab</strong> product and, through careful research<br />

and testing, identify ways to optimise the driving experience.<br />

Everything we develop is designed with integrity and purpose,<br />

enhancing some aspect of performance. An ongoing dialogue<br />

with the worldwide <strong>Saab</strong> community ensures valuable feedback.<br />

Meticulous process<br />

The <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> development centre features two<br />

rolling road dynamometers and an engine test cell, enabling<br />

accurate measurements and the simulation of extreme<br />

conditions. The result is then verified under real-life<br />

conditions in exhaustive road tests.<br />

Retained warranty<br />

In our work we always keep within safety and design limits,<br />

never compromising quality and durability. Every step of<br />

the way we stay true to <strong>Saab</strong>, which is why the <strong>Saab</strong> factory<br />

warranty is always retained. The standard servicing intervals<br />

also remain unchanged.<br />

Complete portfolio<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> develops engine performance upgrades,<br />

exhaust systems, suspension systems, brakes, wheels, interiors,<br />

aerodynamic products and fully customised <strong>Saab</strong> models.<br />

How to buy<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> products are sold and installed only<br />

at authorised <strong>Saab</strong> dealers. Contact your local dealer or<br />

visit www.hirsch-performance.ch to find out more.

Prepare for<br />

extreme performance<br />

There is nothing ordinary about a <strong>Saab</strong> engine. The innovative <strong>Saab</strong> turbo technology means power,<br />

vitality and impressive torque. Now imagine unleashing the full potential of a <strong>Saab</strong> engine, increasing<br />

the top-end output of your <strong>Saab</strong> by between 10–40 %, depending on the model. Add to that the<br />

same increase in ripping torque and acceleration. That is what <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> upgrades are all<br />

about. Making a <strong>Saab</strong> that much more extraordinary through relatively small adjustments.<br />

<strong>Saab</strong> 9-3 2.8T equipped with<br />

· 300 hp / 430 Nm.<br />

· 6-Twin spoke 198" alloy wheels.<br />

· Mesh grille.<br />

· Carbon fiber aerodynamic kit.<br />

· 17" 345 mm brake upgrade.<br />

· Sports suspension.


Exhilarating performance<br />

Driving a top-of-the-line <strong>Saab</strong> is an exciting experience. Boosting its already powerful engine with<br />

a <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> upgrade takes you to an even higher level of driving pleasure. You can rest<br />

assured that the already intelligent power of a <strong>Saab</strong> will now outsmart most other cars on the road.<br />

Careful software calibration ensures that despite the enormous increase in power and torque,<br />

the higher thermal and physical loads are kept within manufacturer tolerances.<br />

Inspiring performance<br />

The revolutionary <strong>Saab</strong> turbo technology combined with cutting edge expertise has resulted in<br />

engines that are both powerful and efficient. <strong>Saab</strong> calls this responsible performance and it means<br />

you have all the power you need, while showing respect for nature. Whether you are equipped<br />

with a fuel-efficient, low-emission turbodiesel or a BioPower engine, <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> lets you<br />

add power and vitality in a CO2-optimised way. That’s what we call a truly inspiring opportunity.<br />

Entertaining performance<br />

With the <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> upgrades, <strong>Saab</strong> petrol engines receive a vitamin injection that<br />

makes them deliver between 20 and 60 more horsepower than the original, depending on<br />

the model. In parallel, torque is increased by a similarly impressive 45–80 Nm over a wide<br />

rpm range. As you can imagine, this means a completely new and decidedly more entertaining<br />

driving experience.<br />

Underline your style<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> has designed a range of components that add an extra dimension to<br />

your <strong>Saab</strong>. Take for example the stylish exhaust systems made of stainless steel. Their smooth<br />

lines give your <strong>Saab</strong> a more dynamic appearance and just the right touch of extravagance.<br />

Meticulous research and testing lie behind the flow-optimised tubing that minimises back<br />

pressure and improves throttle response. Add to that the carefully tuned mufflers and<br />

Helmholtz resonators providing a powerful, sporty and well-balanced sound.<br />

<strong>Saab</strong> 9-3 1.9TTiD is equipped with<br />

· 200 hp / 420 Nm.<br />

· 6-Twin spoke 198" alloy wheels.<br />

· Stainless steel dual exhaust system.<br />

· Carbon fiber aerodynamic kit.<br />

· Spoiler and diffusor.<br />

· 17" 345 mm brake upgrade.<br />

· Sports suspension.<br />

Excite your senses<br />

The purpose of <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> is to enhance both the form and function of your <strong>Saab</strong>,<br />

offering products that touch your senses in a subtle but distinctive way. From the instrument<br />

panel through to the aluminium pedals and wheels, all the components are manufactured<br />

to the highest quality standards and perfectly harmonised with each other and with the<br />

rest of the design.<br />

Leather instrument panel<br />

The <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> leather instrument panel creates a whole<br />

new interior. We use carbon leather, which is a new grade of leather<br />

with a carbon-fibre structure. The result is a truly unique cockpit design.<br />

The leather instrument panel can be ordered separately or together<br />

with the <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> aluminium pedals.<br />

Leather interior set for the <strong>Saab</strong> 9-3<br />

The <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> leather interior set includes front and rear<br />

door handles, handbrake lever and smart-slot cover. These high-quality<br />

leather accessories complement the standard or premium leather<br />

option and the <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> leather instrument panel.<br />

Aluminium pedals<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> has designed exclusive pedals of unique fit and<br />

quality, comple menting the other aluminium applications in your <strong>Saab</strong>.<br />

For optimal strength, the racing-style pedals are each CNC-machined<br />

from a single billet of aluminium. And like true racing pedals, the<br />

aluminium has been drilled out to save weight. Finally, the pedals are<br />

equipped with non-slip rubber gripping pads for perfect control.<br />

Fits the <strong>Saab</strong> 9-3 and 9-5.<br />

Spoiler<br />

Aerodynamic products from <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> are created through<br />

exhaustive tests in the wind tunnel and make a significant contribution<br />

to reducing vehicle lift. The result is lower drag, better handling at<br />

high speeds and a sporty appearance to match. Some of the best<br />

examples are the rear spoiler for the <strong>Saab</strong> 9-5 SportCombi and the<br />

aerodynamic kit for the <strong>Saab</strong> 9-3.<br />

Stainless steel sports exhaust systems<br />

A smooth idle purr, a relaxed partial load rumble and a gratifying<br />

roar at high rpm with wide-open throttle. This is the sound of a<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> exhaust system. It is also the result of many<br />

hours of work in the acoustics lab and on the road, tweaking the<br />

configuration of the system to perfectly enhance the character of<br />

<strong>Saab</strong> automobiles.<br />

The tailpipes are polished, chromed and embossed with the<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> logotype. In order to integrate the dual<br />

exhaust systems in a harmonious way, the system is delivered with<br />

a corresponding rear skirt.<br />

Through careful flow-optimised design of all the pipes, bends and<br />

muffler components, back pressure has been reduced in comparison<br />

with the standard exhaust system. The fact that the entire system<br />

is made of stainless steel ensures a maximum of durability and a<br />

minimum of maintenance. All necessary mounting parts are included<br />

to facilitate installation.<br />

Just like all other <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> products, the exhaust systems<br />

are compliant with EU homo logation requirements and are shipped<br />

with the necessary documentation. Vehicles equipped with <strong>Hirsch</strong><br />

<strong>Performance</strong> products remain covered by the <strong>Saab</strong> warranty.<br />

For the <strong>Saab</strong> 9-3 and 9-5, <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> offers dual exhaust<br />

systems, regardless of whether you have a Diesel, BioPower or petrol<br />

engine model.


Add to your pleasure<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> can offer you high-quality wheels, suspension systems and brakes that<br />

enhance the already excellent handling that you enjoy in a <strong>Saab</strong>. Reduced unsprung weight,<br />

a lowered centre of gravity and and even better stopping power are some the beneficial effects.<br />

Not to mention the sportier and more awe-inspiring impression your <strong>Saab</strong> will make.<br />

<strong>Saab</strong> 9-3 Aero is equipped with<br />

· 300 hp / 400 Nm.<br />

· Stainless steel dual exhaust system.<br />

· 5-Twin spoke 188" alloy wheels.<br />

· 17" 345 mm brake upgrade.<br />

· Sports suspension.<br />

· Roof spoiler.<br />

Brake upgrade<br />

With the <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> brake system, you can be sure that<br />

the stopping power is always there when you need it. We achieve<br />

this by using well-proven, deceivingly low-key single piston technology<br />

that is scaled up generously. This also optimises cooling performance.<br />

Furthermore, the small number of moving parts exposed to the hot<br />

and corrosive environment ensures excellent reliability and durability.<br />

Sport chassis for the <strong>Saab</strong> 9-5<br />

The <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> sport chassis lowers the centre of gravity,<br />

which means the handling and braking performance of your <strong>Saab</strong> 9-5<br />

are improved and a sportier stance is created. The sport chassis has<br />

been developed to ensure that comfort and handling are well balanced<br />

and that the <strong>Saab</strong> safety systems operate correctly under extreme<br />

conditions. Fitting the sport chassis means that the car is lowered by<br />

approximately 15 mm.<br />

Sport springs for the <strong>Saab</strong> 9-3<br />

The specially developed <strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> sport springs lower the<br />

centre of gravity of your <strong>Saab</strong> 9-3 by approximately 20 mm. The result<br />

is even better driving dynamics with improved handling and braking<br />

performance, while ensuring that the <strong>Saab</strong> safety systems operate<br />

correctly under extreme conditions. Another advantage is of course<br />

an even sportier appearance.<br />

Alloy wheels<br />

<strong>Hirsch</strong> <strong>Performance</strong> has developed alloy wheels in four outstand-<br />

ingly stylish and distinctive designs, enhancing the appearance of<br />

your <strong>Saab</strong>. The high-performance wheels are either flow formed<br />

(5-twin spoke) or manufactured using a low-pressure casting process<br />

(3-spoke and 6-spoke) and are both outstandingly lightweight and<br />

robust. The reduced unsprung mass improves both dynamic properties<br />

and comfort. What is more, perfect roundness has been ensured,<br />

minimising the need for balance weights. These characteristics may<br />

be hard to notice for the untrained eye, but you may notice the<br />

smooth, vibration-free ride.<br />
