1981 saw the release of John Gardner's first 007 novel "Licence Renewed", which was published to great critical acclaim. The book introduced us to new the "Silver Beast" and its refinements, and the car went on to see action again in two more Gardner titles in 1982's "For Special Services" and "Icebreaker" in 1983. 1981 såg frisläppandet av John Gardner: s första 007 nya "License förnyade", som kom till stor kritisk bifall. Boken infördes oss till den nya "Silver Beast" och dess finesser, och bilen fortsatte med att se handling igen i två mer Gardner titlar i 1982: s "för särskilda tjänster" och "Icebreaker" 1983.
"You could clock up the miles on it, you could clock up the speeds on it. I had a Saab right up until I stopped driving two years ago, and loved them." "Du kan klocka upp den miles på den, du kan klocka upp hastigheter på det. Jag hade en Saab ända tills jag slutade att köra för två år sedan, och älskade dem."
In 1982 a specially created SAAB was developed based on what had been written by Gardner the previous year. 1982 ett speciellt skapat SAAB har utvecklats baserat på vad som hade skrivits av Gardner föregående år. The car was a fully working version of its fictional cousin, including a specially developed turbo changed engine with water injection raising the power to 240 BHP from 2000cc and provided 0 - 60 MPH in less than 7 seconds. Bilen var en helt arbetar version av sin fiktiva kusin, inklusive en särskilt utvecklad turbo ändrats motorn med vatten injektion öka kraften till 240 BHP från 2000cc och gav 0 - 60 km / h på mindre än 7 sekunder.
Bond's 900 Turbo
The 1979 900 was available in three versions: The GL had the single-carb 99 hp/73.5 kW engine, the GLS had twin carburetors for 106 hp/79.5 kW, the EMS and GLE had fuel injection for 116 hp/87 kW, and the 900 Turbo produced 143 hp/107 kW. A five-speed transmission was introduced in the EMS and Turbo for 1980.
The only bodywork originally available was the three or five-door hatchback style, which was seen as more modern at the time. The vehicle also had an aviation-inspired curved windscreen for better visibility and an aircraft style dashboard. The dashboard itself had been arranged according to the frequency of use and/or importance of the various controls and gauges.
The Saab 900 arrives with James Bond at the wheel
A few years ago, the very idea that one day, fictional hero James Bond would be driving a Saab, might well have been ridiculed. Now it’s happened; and it’s not seen as incongruous, but as a confirmation of the Saab image. That alone is a measure of the way in which the Saab 900 turbo has caught the imagination of the public.
As soon as it was introduced, the Saab turbo was hailed as a car which genuinely broke new ground: the performance car of the future.
It brought the mystique and appeal of turbocharging into the realms of family motoring, and offered a combination of performance, economy and practicality which is still unique.
Then, in May 1981, the new James Bond novel —‘Licence Renewed’ by John Gardner—was published to great critical acclaim and an immediate place in the best seller lists, where it was to stay for some weeks.
007’s car in detail
The James Bond Saab is fitted with all those little extras essential to the modern secret agent as shown in the picture below.
Note the specially developed turbo engine which, with the aid of water injection raises the power to 175 BHP—still from only 1985 cc!— and provides a 0-60 mph time of less than 8 seconds. Top speed? 145 mph plus.
These special refinements raise the Saab 900 range to a new level of prestige and credibility— alongside the Bentley, Aston Martin and Lotus previously associated with Bond.
