The sophisticated, jet-originated Saab brand gets in touch with its inner funk and is strutting its new and improved hip side, as the 9-7X Aero Concept debuts at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer Association trade show here this week.
In a collaboration with the DUB customization company in Los Angeles, Saab's first ever SUV is decked-out with a high level of specialized elements. Those include:
24-inch custom fabricated "Aero X" wheels and 275/30 Pirelli tires Suede and leather interior trim Custom front fender side vents Custom three-inch lowered suspension Borla Performance Exhaust System Window and tail light tint DVD/TV in-dash double-din head unit Four, seven-inch TV monitors for seats 15-inch flip down LCD center Two amplifiers and two 12-inch sub woofers with custom box
"DUB was really inspired by the Saab Aero X concept car and the 'Born from Jets' theme," says Myles Kovacs, president and co-founder of DUB Industries. "We wanted to integrate it into a custom vehicle. The 9-7X is a great vehicle to customize. We are very pleased with the outcome, it looks hot!"
The big question at the show very well may be: when will this black beauty go into production? "Shows such as SEMA provide Saab a terrific opportunity to try new things and quickly get the evolution out in front of the public," Julie Kenar, Saab Automobile USA 9-7X marketing manager explains. "This will act as a good gauge for whether this concept is one which resonates with customers."
