Video: Jason Castriota Defends The Saab PhoeniX From Chris Bangle

Follow Nelson

A new battle in the car design wars broke out on the floor of the Geneva Motor Show, and CarDesignNews caught it on video. The conflict? Ex-BMW designer and notorious flame-surfacer Chris Bangle's pointed questions to ex-Bertone and new Saab design head Jason Castriota over the shape of the new PhoeniX concept.

The video speaks for itself, but we think Castriota acquitted the design--and himself--nicely. Bangle, on the other hand, came off a bit...well, you'll see.
