The key to the outstanding achievements of Hirsch Performance is specialist knowledge.
Product development is in the hands of a team of engineers with up to 20 years' experience of working with Saab vehicles. They take current market and technology trends into account in their constant efforts to develop new and improved products. Valuable feedback and ideas are also obtained from ongoing dialogues with manufacturers, dealers and the worldwide Saab community.
A high-tech infrastructure and strict quality management provide a solid foundation for cutting-edge product development.
The modern development centre which includes two rolling road dynamometers and an engine test cell makes it possible to perform accurate measurements and simulate extreme conditions, such as high outside temperatures, low barometric air pressure or poor fuel quality. The robustness designed under extreme laboratory conditions is then verified under real-life conditions in exhaustive road tests. The minute attention to detail during the quality assurance process results in a level of all-round practicality that matches that of standard models, i.e. the same smooth power delivery, unaltered servicing intervals and the same – or even lower – fuel consumption.
The areas of competence represented within Hirsch Performance includes all aspects of automobile development:
Hirsch Performance develops engine performance upgrades, exhaust systems, suspension systems, brakes, wheels, interiors, aerodynamics and fully customised Saab models. This comprehensive competence makes Hirsch Performance an important partner for the manufacturer, importers and dealers of the Saab premium marque.
