What do AMG, Penthouse, Johnny Walker, AC/DC and Saab have in common, aside from the ability to bring joy to a manâ€™s life in one way shape or form? Itâ€™s the colour blackâ€¦which strictly speaking isnâ€™t really a colour but we wonâ€™t let that worry us now.
Black label, Black edition and Back in Black the album. Saab have just announced the planned unveiling in Frankfurt next month of their new Saab Turbo X, a limited edition performance car in the spirit of their classic 99/900 series â€œblack turbosâ€.
The very first turbo-charged SAAB was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1977 to what must have been a stunned audience back in the day. From that day onwards turbo-charging has played a major role in the companies products.
Saab are hoping that what they term the â€œinnovative featuresâ€ of the new â€œBlack Turboâ€ will also attract widespread emulation.
Saab have not been forthcoming with the Black Turbo's exact specifications but expect AWD and plenty of turbo-charged mumbo.
