The interior of the cabin uses Swedish glass-making and
precise instrument-making skills to show data in graphic 3-D
pictures on glass-like acrylic "clear zones," doing away with
traditional dials and switches. Both inside and out, this twoseat sports coupe defies conventional design. The Aero-X was designed to be a design experiment from the
beginning. When opening its new design centre in Sweden at
the time, General Motors' parent corporation desired a
beautiful concept to showcase Saab's most recent design
language. Anthony Lo, who was in charge of creating the actual
prototype, led the design team.
A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle
shifters sent power to all four wheels. Performance-wise, the
front-mid engined sports car could reach top speed of 250 km/
h electronically limited and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in
4.9 seconds. With a long bonnet, short overhangs, and prominent wheel
arches, the concept automobile featured the proportions of a
traditional grand tourer. However, the cockpit canopy with its
one-piece wraparound windshield and side windows and lack of
A-pillars, which allowed for 180-degree view for both
occupants, was possibly its most distinctive feature.
