The Saab Aero-X concept is a two-seater sports coupe, The muscular shape of the Saab Aero X clearly signals its role as a high performance driver’s car.

As we know the Saab Aero-X concept was built at G-Studio in Italy, and Daniel frequently had to fly there in RJ100 high-wing planes.  First of all, there are no doors or windshield pillars. because the Saab Aero X adopts a cockpit canopy, just as you would see on a jet aircraft. It offers the Aero X pilot full 180 degree vision, and also facilitates entry and exit from its low-slung cabin.  The canopy elevates upward and forward on an articulated linkage, the roof and glazing moving separately from two side panels.  All exterior and interior lighting is by LED (light-emitting diode), which has given the design team new freedoms to exploit the compact packaging benefits of a technology that will be featured increasingly in future Saab products. The polished alloy wheels – 22 inches in diameter at the front and 23 at the rear – are a work of art,

Inside, the Saab Aero X’s cockpit also adds a new dimension to clean Scandinavian interior design by completely eliminating conventional dials and buttons. Instead, Saab has applied techniques derived from Swedish glass and precision instrument making, displaying data on glass-like acrylic ‘clear zones’ in graphic 3-D images.

Saab Aero-X is equiped with 2.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine,  which power comes from a 400bhp. All four wheels are driven through a seven-speed transmission, similar to Volkswagen’s DSG sequential system. In the front suspension of the unique chassis, the springs and dampers are mounted upside down, allowing the bonnet to be as low as possible. Saab wasn’t keen on us verifying the claimed 4.9-second 0-60mph time and 155mph top speed of this priceless, unique machine, but the engine certainly sounds mean. Yet more amazing is the jet-like driving experience.Saab Aero-X concept
