Koenigsegg CCX meets Saab Aero X concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Although the deal to purchase Saab between Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg and General Motors has not yet been completely finalized, that hasn't stopped us from openly pining for a production version of Saab's gorgeous Aero X concept car of 2006. And now that we have pictures of the showstopper adjacent to one of Mr. Christian von Koenigsegg's own gorgeous creatures, well... it may just be enough to keep us awake at night. We're not sure where these two-door millionaire's coupes got together for this photoshoot, but judging from the snow on the ground, we wouldn't rule out the motherland.

While it's way too early to tell if Saab's new ownership situation will help get the automaker out of the woods it has seemingly been lost in for years, we can't help but at least get a little excited when seeing these two together. Check them out in the high-res gallery below.

      It's pretty funny but looking at the pictures, it seems as if this partnership were meant to be when I look at they share some very similar characteristics.

      I'm about to wet my pants in excitement after reading the news item and seeing that epic photo.

      One potential problem for Koenigsegg in the short term is they will no longer be considered a small volume manufacturer given Saab's sales. They won't qualify for exemptions from meeting all the safety and emissions standards. I hope that doesn't kill off the CCX here.

        It's not actually Koenigsegg that's buying Saab, so I think the Koenigsegg brand will be mostly unaffected. The buyers are a separate group of investors called the Koenigsegg Group, consisting of Christian von Koenigsegg, Norwegian BÃ¥rd Eker (of Koenigsegg and Hydrolift) and American Mark Bishop.

      Wow that didn't take long for a photo shoot. They still have snow there!? I hope Koenigsegg makes Saab cool, because right now Saab isn't too cool

        Nah man , the Turbo X just stinks (in a good way) of coolness.

      It's good to see saab on their feet. Even in their blander gm days the company produced decent products(just not show stoppers).

      Oh My God. I'm crying from the wonderful sensation of joy. Thank God the Sweedish thunder gods have saved my beloved car!
