This time its Saabâ€™s turn to feel the pain, as three new images of Saabâ€™s Turbo X hit the net just shy of its official Frankfurt Motor Show unveiling.
The Saab Turbo X is the tasty little limited edition Swedish hot-rod that Saab will be using to introduce their new XWD Haldex AWD system. The trick XWD system is capable of splitting the Turbo Xâ€™s drive front to rear and side to side care of a new electronic limited slip differential.
According to the folks over at Trollhattan Saab the new XWD system is so effective the Turbo X has outrun Porscheâ€™s 911 Turbo on a slalom course during testing â€“ a feat not to be sneezed at.
Although official details of the Turbo X have not yet been released by Saab, we do know that it will feature a 2.8-litre V6 developing 209kW/280hp and 400Nm endowing the Turbo X with enough mumbo to rocket it from 0-100 km/h (62mph) in 5.7 seconds. Trollhatten Saab believe that the Turbo X will be a manual transmission only affair.
Saab will be limiting production to 2000 units.
