That is one sexy automobile!! This photo is from Fairfax Press, here in Australia. The Aero-X actually features on the front cover of their automotive section, Drive, today (sorry Paul, I’m on the wrong PC to post the pic!!).
Actually, the Aero-X seems to be ever-present at the moment. It’s hard to dial up an automotive website’s Geneva coverage without seeing it, which is fantastic news.
Car Design News has a mini-article on the Aero-X, with the promise of a full Design and Development article to come. From their mini-piece….
In many ways the Aero X is a classic superficial concept car; a sleek sports coupe with little relevance to any forthcoming Saab production car. But it is also a great signifier that this beleaguered brand is still on the map and a luscious design in its own right…..
….The interior is more reserved but is notable for its use of layered green acrylic for its instrumentation. Without doubt, the Saab Aero X is the concept car of the show.
And on that note, who wants odds on the Aero-X winning whatever the award is for the best new concept/car in show?
Non-Aero-X news, but worthwhile:
Some news from comments that should be on the front page –> Apparently Saab improved in February in nearly all European markets and have hit a record for the month in Europe with 8,974 vehicles sold.
Baby steps, people. But all important. Congratulations!
I just got this in via email. Check out the April cover of CAR magazine!! Thanks to Vaidas for the heads-up….
Saab has built a supercar, and if you get yourself a copy of the April issue of Car magazine you can see it in all its glory. Why should you be interested? Firstly because the car is simply breathtaking – a no guts, no glory celebration of Saab’s fighter jet heritage, packed with beautiful details. And second, because Saab is a badge we all thought GM was going to kill off as the American multinational struggles for survival. Not so. The super-Saab is living proof that all’s going to be well in Sweden for some time to come.
