A real SAABster, Kaylan Morley behind the wheel at Road Atlanta
ATLANTA, GA - July, 2, 2008: Her name's Kaylan Morley. She's 21. And she knows just as much about Saabs as the trolls in Trollhatten.

Kaylan has grown up around Saabs -- her dad restores them and her brother builds them to rally race. She works at a Saab dealership, owns six custom Saabs -- including a 2006 9-3 SportCombi -- and drives a highly modified 500+ horsepower Saab 9000 Aero as her daily ride. Because of these credentials, GMnext gave Kaylan the opportunity to join other Saab aficionados at the Saab Turbo X Driving Academy at Road Atlanta, where they all pushed the new Saab Turbo X to its limits.

The Turbo X Driving Academy was an enhanced version of the Saab Aero Academy, which is available to Saab owners and the general public. Held as an exclusive school for Turbo X owners who ordered their car before February, it gave students the chance to lap the Road Atlanta Road Course and have one-on-one time with the instructors (one of whom claimed to be one of only three Americans to serve as the infamous Stig on the BBC’s TopGear!)

So jump in, buckle up and click on the video links to the right for a ride with Kaylan in the new Turbo X. Just don’t try this on public roads.
