Default Saab Aero X Concept

A week before its debut at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, pictures of the gorgeous Saab Aero-X have leaked onto enthusiast websites across the internet. This two-seat siren boasts the sexiest shape ever seen on a Saab. The opening canopy is certainly a head turner, even if it may be a too-obvious attempt to play up the brand’s aircraft heritage. The wheels are killer eleven-spoke beauties, and all lighting, inside and out, is LED. Alas, a sexy new sports car is not in the Saab product plan. But let’s hope the Aero-X signals the design direction for future Saabs.



Engine - BioPowered 2800cc, 2.8liter V6, BiTurbo
Power - 400bhp@ 5000rpm, 369nm@ 2000rpm
0 to 60 - 4.9seconds
Top Speed - 155 mph | 249.4 km/h (limited)

karthik - I had clicked pictures of this ride at the new york auto show and posted some for the memebers here. This was on April 22nd. The car sure is a BOMBDIGITY! It was one of the most attractive car at the show.
