Koenigsegg-Saab Takeover Prophesied by Photo Shoot in 2006

The recent Saab acquisition by Koenigsegg was apparently foretold not by sages, but by a photo session in 2006 bringing together a Saab Aero X and a Koenigsegg CCX.

According to forum posts on saabunited via, the prophetic photographic encounter happened on an airfield in Sweden in 2006 for a German magazine. The article was about the Aero X, but when a CCX happened to make its appearance on the track, they thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to put them side by side.

Who would have thought that three years later the Saab Aero X and a Koenigsegg CCX would become products of the same company?

Speaking of this, although rumored for quite some time, the Saab purchase by Koenigsegg was officially confirmed by GM on Tuesday, the deal being slated to close by the end of the third quarter.

As we previously reported, the European Investment Bank (EIB) will provide $600 million financing with state guarantee by the Swedish government, but additional support will also come from the luxury sports car manufacturer.

The deal sees Koenigsegg helping Saab launch new products, currently in the final stages of development, and eventually recover from the effects of the economic crisis.
