The brand might not have had to go through bankruptcy.
Called the Saab AiroX Autonomous Concept, it doesn’t actually come from the automaker itself. Instead, it’s created by the folks at Gray Design, who imagined what a Saab supercar could look like by drawing inspiration from Saab’s history as an aircraft company. The company decided to create the AiroX concept upon hearing news that “Saab AB would once again venture into the automotive market with their advanced AI technology developed for the aerospace industry.” Basically it imagines a new chapter in Saab’s history with a self aware, fun loving car design that ties in elements of the automaker’s automotive design language and design elements of its fighter jets.
But realistically, it doesn’t look like anything Saab has ever created, save for the slight resemblance in the front grille. Like other supercar concepts, the AiroX has a huge focus on aerodynamics, but the coolest part of the design are the dynamic spoilers that deploy during high-speed handling to affect airflow and downforce. Gray Design says they would work independently or in unison to achieve better cornering and stability.
“The power for the car is thought to be high performance electric and the 0-60 time is superfast,” the design firm said. “The handling is supernice and the ride is supersmooth thanks to the micro-adjustments made by the dynamic airflow systems.”
It’s a shame it’s supernotreal.
