School's In for Saab Driving Academy

June 4, 2008
Saab's Turbo X has arrived, and for the customers who ordered an all-black version of the first all-wheel-driven 9-3 earlier this year, it's time to go to school.

To commemorate the arrival of the sedan- and wagon-bodied Turbo X, Saab says it's hosting a Driving Academy at Road Atlanta this week. The two-day course is being held for Turbo X buyers who ordered their new cars before February, when the limited edition first was announced.

If you didn't qualify for the driving school--where it's a balmy 93 degrees this week--you might still be able to snag one of the 600 copies of the Turbo X headed here for the 2008 model year. The Sport Sedan is priced from $42,510 and the SportCombi is priced from $43,310.

The Turbo X cars, which we first showed you in our coverage from last year's Frankfurt auto show, sport Saab's first all-wheel-drive system, called Cross Wheel Drive; special 18-inch wheels; black paint and black interior trim; and specially tuned brakes, suspension, and steering. The Turbo X also sports a 280-horsepower version of Saab's 2.8-liter turbocharged V-6 engine, and a choice of six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes.
