While some got the 'Car of the Year' title, Saab via its GM Europe's Advanced Design division director, Anthony Lo, got the “Asian Designer of the Year“ prize at the 2007 ELLE Magazine Style Awards. He was honored for his work on the Saab Aero X concept car unveiled a the 2006 Geneva Motor Show.

Born in Hong Kong 43 yeaars ago, Anthony Lo studied design at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and later graduated with a Master's degree in Transportation Design from the Royal College of Art in London. He moved to Saab in 2000 as head of Advanced Design and worked under Michael Mauer, then head of design at Saab. In charge of the Advanced Design, he oversaw the latest GM concept cars in europe such as the 9X, 9-3X, 9-3 Sport Hatch and Aero X concept cars as well as the 2007 Opel GTC Concept and Opel Flextreme.
