TTA Saab spy pictures

Last week Tim closed his article on the TTA Saab with this sentence:

Flash Engineering and Team Tidö will test the car for the first time on a secret location sometime next week.

Pretty nice – obviously the design is for advantages in a racing environment and for everyday use. IMO that’s a good thing.

Circuit Pole mecanique Alès is often used for testing. It has the advantage of weather – it has 300 days of sunshine each year and very rarely freezes. It is about 20km from my house.
