Infusion(TM)-Wrapped X-Concept Street Recon Vehicle to Preview at SEMA
One-of-a-Kind, Exotic Concept Prototype Previews in Las Vegas October 31

The P001 prototype of the aggressive new X-Concept Street Recon Vehicle (X-SRV(C)) line makes its western debut on the exhibit floor of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Casborn Design, a trend-setting industrial design firm that specializes in the development of exclusive high end, exotic automobiles and sport utility vehicles, has proudly collaborated with X- Concept Motorsports LLC, manufacturers of armored luxury and exotic automobiles and sport utility vehicles to create the X-SRV. The vehicle, recently unveiled in Miami Beach earlier this month to rave reviews, will be showcased as part of the Solutia Inc. exhibit (booth #12340). The X-SRV prominently features Solutia's new InFusion(TM) glass technology.

"In designing the prototype we wanted to capture not only the distinct,
rugged look of a military oriented vehicle with the feel of a 1930's era
Cadillac and Deusenberg, but more importantly, design a high performance,
exclusive vehicle that can be individualized," said Ramone Casborn,
International Design Director and CEO of Casborn Design. "We are truly
excited to be showcasing the X-SRV P001 at SEMA, as the show is undoubtedly the most influential automotive specialty market event in the world."

With smooth lines from front to back, the X-SRV offers discriminating
auto enthusiasts an unparalleled level of protection, style and security,
exemplified by the dynamic silver metallic InFusion glass in the
windshield, side and rear windows. InFusion glass takes up to ten times
longer to break than standard automotive tempered glass, and is
specifically designed to reduce vehicle noise, weight and heat for a
cooler, quieter, more comfortable ride.

Clients will be able to select from an unlimited choice of exotic and
designer material options, including crocodile, eel, gator, stingray,
shark, ostrich skin, Burberry, Coach, Fendi, Gucci, Hermes, Coogi, Issey
Miyake, Prada, and Louis Vuitton upholstery.

The exterior styling is a fusion of Neo Classical American and art deco
car proportions and detailing with crisp, deliberate streamlining that is
intertwined with European, American and Japanese influences. Additionally,
the feel of the X-SRV recalls Cadillacs of the Capone era while performance
is highlighted with the use of carbon fiber and Kevlar.
Not only does the X-SRV offer occupants a seamless integration of
extreme protection, wicked raw power, and street performance, but also
state-of-the- art technology and luxury entertainment. From an Xbox Gaming
System to Internet connectivity to Bluetooth technology to fingerprint
recognition and more, the X-SRV is equipped with an abundance of elite
electronic brands, such as Alpine, Icon-TV, Stinger and JL Audio that
offers occupants a new level of personalization.
"Although there are different levels of performance, customization, and
protection available to discerning buyers, the term 'base model' really
doesn't describe the 500 horsepower SRV because the degree of
individualization that is achievable with this vehicle is simply amazing,"
said Steven Carr, Vice President and General Counsel of X-Concept
Motorsports. "Whether a buyer wants a unique interior or is more concerned
with performance or ballistics protection, a full range of options is
available to allow a level of personalization that is reminiscent of the
original luxury coach builds."
Buyers of the X-SRV will be able to individualize their vehicle
directly with the dealer from the one-on-one sketch phase with an X-Concept
designer to final production. Buyers will also have the option from 10
Casborn Design luminescent pearl colors and Wicked Powered(TM) engineering
packages ranging from a level one 550 Hp to a level four 427 twin turbo
X-Concept Motorsports and Casborn Design will be designing and
manufacturing 250 limited edition X-SRVs that will be sold throughout
select exotic dealerships in the U.S. International markets include Dubai,
Russia, Tokyo and United Kingdom.
