Neo Brothers - UK Unveiling Of The Neo Saab 96SS
Neo Brothers at Intsaab13 Wicksteed Park, Kettering
We are pleased to announce that Erik Carlsson and Peter Bäckström very
kindly unveiled our Neo 96ss at the International Saab Club meeting which
was held at Wicksteed Park on 3rd -- 4th August 2013.
The car was well received by the guests at the event and we had much praise
and congratulations on our achievement.
The recurring question was "When will it go on the track?" In an ideal
world, we would like to drop all the other work and concentrate on testing
and adjusting the 96ss but, common sense and commercial reality must
prevail which means that we must concentrate on the final stages of the
transfer of stock into our new warehouse. Having said that, we 'really
want' to test it on the track by October/November of this year so that it
can be properly ready for action next year. Watch this space!
The Intsaab 2013 Kettering event was a resounding success -- even the sun
was out for most of the time.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Saab Owners Club and the
international Saab Clubs meeting, this year, we went to town on the Neo
Brothers stand. It entailed a 150 square metre marquee, our hospitality
rig and a further external area of some 150 square metres of forecourt
space which housed numerous cars three of which were our race cars
including the 96ss, the Grinnall as well as two of our customer's cars that
we have over the years customised. In addition to the cars on display, we
had a large selection of new Saab parts for sale as well as Saab
Expressions clothing, accessories and memorabilia. There were in excess of
20 of our staff on hand in order to look after our guests and customers.
Indeed we were congratulated by the organisers of the event for the largest
stand ever in the history of their various meetings - the acknowledgement
We would like to extend a very big thank you to all our customers,
supporters, Saab enthusiasts, sponsors and organisers that all contributed
to the success of the event.
Please see below the link to our photo album where our photographers
captured some key moments.
We are looking forward to Poland next year.

Neo Brothers - Saab 96ss On the Dyno!
Performance information is beginning to trickle through from Maptun during
their tuning process. BHP is currently at 470 and 520nm of torque with
scope to increase to 500BHP plus! Restrictions have been identified by
Maptun and we therefore need to undertaken some modifications. The car has
therefore for the moment been limited to 470BHP. These modifications will
be done by us in due course. At present we have to bring the car back from
Sweden for its UK unveiling on the 3rd of August at the International Saab
meeting at Wicksteed Park, Kettering.
We have however obtained a short video of the 96ss going through one of its
tuning processes and even as is, it sounds pretty good - see and hear for
NEOBROTHERS - SAAB POWERED GRINNALL FIRST RUN

taken from their 420BHP 9-3 racecar tuned by Maptun. All work and custom
