The brilliantly titled Goodwood Festival of Speed got underway last weekend, and Robin (remember the Ice Experience?) trotted along for a bit of a quick look. You’d never have known for all the Porsche, Bugatti and general exoticar headlines that Saab were participating. But they were.
The Aero-X made what may be its UK debut prior to the British Motor Show later in the month, and there was also one other treat in store for Saabophiles – Ursaab.
As you can see, the British turned on their finest weather 😉
The Aero-X was indeed at Goodwood and what a beauty. The crowds were too big and too close to the car to get good pics but I got a few. This was one of those times I wish the car had been behind ropes. I asked if it would go up the hill today but a very nice Swedish man said no, because it was raining. I’ve never noticed before but it does not have wipers, as he said it was always built as a show car.
It did go on track on the Saturday I believe but I was not there to see it. Also at the show was the Saab 92 prototype, great to see that one too.
