LONDON - November 1, 2007: MPH 2007, which begins today, 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 ($67,454 equivalent).

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



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.

I like everying about the car except $67,454:eek: .
The car definately has "exclusivity" but at that price there is just too much competition.

I went to the Tampa Auto show last night. Saab was no more than a few sedans and one 9^3 vert.

But at least the representative new what the new black turbo was about. He mentioned only 600 units will be available in the US and should be on sale in a month or so!

67000? you can buy a newly 07 Corvette for that.
Remember that in the UK a poverty-spec 2.0t would set you back the equivilent of $45-50k USD.

I'd expect a base 9-3 aero XWD to come in at ~$38k US, with the turbo X's going for ~$40k.
