The Saab Aero X is turning out to be the head turner of the Geneva Motor Show, causing sore necks among the international motor press who were just as surprised as us that something so wild could come out of Saab.

Alberto finally got some time to walk around the Aero X and take some live shots, although we’re still lacking a view of the interior. To make up for it we got you some video of the concept’s cockpit canopy in action. Enjoy.

      I'm 28 and have watched cars turn into some experiments. People who have no love for cars but just drawing are employed by Human Resources. You have cars to either have one angle thats nice but the rest a mess. I've loved SAAB for their engineering and ability to design the best. This car is a joke. Gorgeous at first, BUT ugly rear, and what's with the roof. Having fun and making a car that makes sense is another. I love the doors though. Had you left the roof alone and avoided an awful rear end that looks incomplete, then I would have been ok! with it. All these cars look the same. Somebody get the old school designers to knock some sense in these kids. SAAB, I'd like to think it was all GM's fault and not you. I loved SAAB before I was old enough to reach the pedals. They cared for what they made. Functional art engineered for the people. Mixed feelings here. My loyalty lies with the old SAAB company before GM started messing around. Leave European cars alone American companies. I'm tired of watching nothing but disappointing cars coming out. Lexus, SAAB, Infinity, Nissan, you guys are alright. Whatever, I'll design my own car. Can't get worse that what's already coming out there.

      absolutely stunning! some angles remind me of my classic 900 aero. the airvent holes on the bonnet would have been a nice touch.
      it's ashame the grille has lost its famous 3 hole styling.
      hope it gets built exactly as the concept and affordable to the average saab lover!

      More open and universally supported than quicktime? Hahaha. As oposed to the very closed platform of Windows Media which just plain sucks. Quicktime plays extremely well on both platforms whereas WMV does not.

      I like it. And I NEVER like SAABs.

      You can see a picture of the dash at www.thecarconnection.com. I love this car from the outside but I can see why there are not many pictures of the inside. It looks unfinished and a little cheap in my opinion. Why waist so much time on a concept car that as Lutz states is not a priority and will not make it in to production. Where is the concept of the next 9-5 sedan and wagon?

      Proportions are in line with the concept car from the early 1980's(the one w/ solar cell roof controlling the cars temp while parked. My only question is, can you still get out in the event of a role over? I would intend on getting very sideways daily if I had this car, and would like to have some sort of safety assurance. I can see why it was a head turner. I like they turbo fan rims other cues pulling in the look of the old fighter jet. Could this also be the first rear wheel or four wheel drive platform production Saab? Keep up the good work, build something exciting and don't drop the ball!

      Dang - I love this car...but I think I would have some ifficulty when going through the drive up window at my favorite fast food restaurant, dropping my mail off at the drive up drop off mailbox or a drive through ATM. Many businesses have designed their facility for the convenience of the customer so they don’t even have to get out of their car. As appealing as the access configuration is for this vehicle it may not be very practical. As another thought, your interior could get very wet if it is raining. BUT - I still love the looks of the car. I agree with many of the other positive comments made and I would love to see this car put into regular production. I think SAAB has a winner.
