Saab Turbo X

At the MPH 2007 Show we will have the possibility to see the UK premiere of the Saab Turbo X. The model was built as a celebration of 30 years of Saab turbo-charging. Initially, the model was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. It seems that it will be built as a limited edition and only 500 units will be sold in the UK for GBP32.495 each. The carmaker used for the first time the XWD all-wheel-drive system. Its 2.8-liter V6 turbo engine is able to develop 280 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. You can start ordering the Turbo X now and also the model is available in Saloon or Sport-Wagon body-styles. First customers will receive their cars at the beginning of next year.

* Saab announces 500 to be sold in the UK, prices start from £32,495

MPH 2007 (1st- 4th November) will see the UK premiere of the Saab Turbo X, a driver-focused performance car that sets new standards for the brand. Initially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, Saab has today announced that only 500 of these limited edition models will be sold in the UK and prices will start from just £32,495.

This model also marks the introduction of XWD, a cutting edge all-wheel drive system that sets performance standards competitors will seek to emulate.

With 400 Nm of torque from its 280 hp 2.8 V6 turbo engine, the Turbo X is the ultimate performance expression of the new Saab 9-3 range. Saab XWD features active management that not only splits torque delivery between both axles, but also between the rear wheels. This responsive system delivers a level of driver involvement and dynamic chassis control never seen before from Saab.

Jonathan Nash, Managing Director of Saab Great Britain, said: "MPH is one of the high points of the automotive calendar and so it is fitting that we chose it for the debut of the Turbo X, which will undoubtedly be one of the talking points of the show."

Available in Saloon or SportWagon bodystyles, the order book for the Turbo X is now open and first customer deliveries are expected early next year.
