I’ve received a number of email about these images, which were first seen over at Auto Motor and Sport’s website.
One of those emails just happens to be from the artist himself, a guy named Ed Gray. Ed is a Dutch/English Industrial designer working in Trollhättan, though not with Saab (though he’d very much like to).
Ed’s supplied a group of images, some of which weren’t featured in the original AMS story. My thanks to him for passing these along.
Saab Spyker 9+ concept
The union of Saab and Spyker presents a unique opportunity to create a design that takes the best of each brand and distills their qualities into a single product.
Spyker lends us its supercar chassis with a mid-mounted engine and low down aerodynamics while Saab contributes with the style, character and engineering, making for a design that is as pleasing to look at as it is to drive.
When the purchase of Saab finally went through it was a great relief for all those in Trollhättan who have connections to this great brand. This design, the “Saab Spyker 9+ Tribute” is just a quick expression of my optimism for the future of the brand.
