The $800,000 Saab Aero X 2006 Concept
Saab Aero-X is a concept car by Saab unveiled at the 2006 Salon
International de l'Auto. It is powered by a 6.8 L twin-turbocharged V12 running on pure ethanol that
produces 600 kW (800 hp). 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is predicted to be 3.9
s and top speed is 420 km/h (261 mph). It has a 7-speed manual
transmission controlled by paddles on the steering wheel.
Like the Saab turbo X, the Aero-X has
four wheel drive. The doors and windscreen are connected, so instead of
using conventional doors or even gullwing doors, it uses a cockpit canopy
where the entire top section of the car is opened. This offered the Aero
X's driver full 180 degree vision, and also facilitates entry and exit from
its low-slung cabin. The body is made of carbon fiber. The suspension is
electronically controlled. Even though it is a compact two-seat sports car,
it has reasonable storage, as the rear features two storage facilities,
with a conventional hatchback and sliding drawer underneath.
The interior offers "clean Scandinavian interior design". The car has no
ordinary dials and buttons; instead, data is displayed on acrylic 'clear
zones' in graphic 3D images. All interior and exterior lights utilize LEDs.
Although only a concept car, it has been well received, with many fans
calling for its production. Victor Muller has responded on the
SaabsUnited.com website, saying that it is not a priority for the company
"This study shows how the strength of the Saab brand heritage can inspire
bold, innovative design," said Bryan Nesbitt, the Executive Director of GM
Design Europe. "As we move forward with new Saab product, we will remain
focused on carefully cultivating this brand equity in the context of
Scandinavian design values."
"This concept shows the exciting possibilities that are open to us as we
evolve a more progressive design language for the Saab brand," says Jan
Åke Jonsson, Saab's Managing Director. "Our designers, engineers and
marketers in Sweden are ideally placed to nurture and communicate the
unique DNA of the Saab brand. Their work will ensure that future product
proposals express core qualities, such as progressive design, sporty
performance and emotional functionality, in a way that is specific to
Saab." Elements of the cars frontal design have emerged in later Saab
models, notably the design refresh of the Saab 9-3 Sports Sedan, the second
generation Saab 9-5 and the upcoming Saab 9-4X.
The Aero-X was rumored to make its cinematic début in Transformers:
Revenge of the Fallen, with fans speculating that it may be used for the
Autobot Wheeljack. However, it was not used.
