Are Scissor Doors really that awesome?

Supercars still fit “Lambo” (Scissor) and Gullwing doors but on the roads and parking lots sometimes we can see aftermarket upgrades of ordinary cars, including Saab cars. If you weren’t aware, the proper name for doors that slightly pop out, then raise up, is not “Lambo doors”. They’re called scissor doors. Yes, Lamborghinis do have this style of entrance, but they weren’t the originators.

It is clear, for supercars – these doors have a function, in all other “ordinary cars” – generally have no function, except that “embellish” the car. Opinions are divided, you like this kind of upgrade, or do not like. Saab company had its own Lambo solution – The entire top section of the car opens in this cockpit canopySaab Aero-X:

On the Internet, we can see numerous examples of Saab car with lambo doors. There are specialized services that offer upgrade kits, and they offer upgrade kits for almost all models of cars Saab

Would it look right on your Saab?

  • Hey! That’s my SAAB, “The Gryphon” at the bottom! That pic was taken from my “MySpace” page circa 2004 when the door conversion was first completed (after a month at the customizer), before it went to another shop the next week for further tweaking, evidenced by the chrome accent band still on the front bumper and lack of Aero. Weird how this crappy interim pic is all over the internet, including cheap “scissor (lambo) door” kits. It was not cheap, simple or easy- a month in the shop, lots of geometry fiddling and engineering as well as custom billet hinges and upgraded air struts. I still have her and I’m sure have better pictures than THAT pixalated newborn wings mess, LOL- LMK!
