Hmmmm, very nice piece of kit that delivery pipe. I don't suppose you will be adding this to your stock will you? Could do with something like that!

This delivery pipe is a bespoke item but it is certainly something to think about for the future! Like our race cars this is an excellent test bed for the R and D of new products that you may see on your own Saabs in the future!

I think a combination of the griffin over the top of the new version of the X ray. If your using wrap, may as well make it a design that can't be done with stickers over paint.

I agree with Elsaabo, the Griffin , with X-ray, maybe have the X-ray at the front showing the wonderful engine, and fade it out to solid yellow with the Griffin at the back.

What a great build though, well done Neo's.

We are pleased to announce that the car has been named as the 96ss

The 96ss has taken its first breath and fired up :twisted: . For those of you that are interested, please see below the link to the video on You Tube.

Neo Brothers - Saab 96ss Takes Its First Breath

The 96ss is now with the wrappers and will be formally unveiled at the Saab festival in Sweden on Sunday 2nd June 2013 outside the Saab museum. There will be no more pictures of the car until then...

For those of you attending the event, we look forward to seeing you in Trollhättan.

Well done guys - what a fantastic achievement!

It's been a real privilege for me as I've been fortunate enough to have seen this masterpiece come together from the very beginning of the project!

You must all be very proud and deservedly so!

Top Work Fellas!

Hope to see you all again very soon!

Yamas!

We built the ‘96ss’ so as to bring back to life the 96 with its proven racing history.

The 96ss is the coming together of the old 96 with the modern 9-3ss. It was fitting that the 96ss should be ‘introduced’ to the world from its original birthplace in Sweden.

The 96ss together with the Grinnall (which we built in 2008) therefore started their journey from our premises in Waltham Cross to Sweden on Saturday 25th May. They were loaded on our transporter and were driven by us to Harwich where after an 18 hour crossing, they then embarked upon a twelve hour journey from Esbjerg in Denmark to the headquarters of Maptun in Orebro Sweden for an initial tuning.

Image

From there, both cars were then taken undercover down to Trollhattan where the Saab factory and the Saab Car Museum are located in readiness for the Saab Festival which started on Thursday 30th May. During the night, the 96ss was allowed to ‘stay’ inside the museum together with the other historic Saabs.

Image

During the day, the Grinnall and 96ss were parked in pride of place at the entrance to the museum although, the 96ss continued to remain under cover of the black and yellow Neo Brothers sheet. Much anticipation was generated until its unveiling.

Image

Bearing in mind the fact that the 96ss takes its core shape from a 96, we felt that it was entirely fitting that two famous rally drivers who earned their reputations in the heyday of the 96 should unveil our car.

Image

At 11am on Sunday 2nd June on a bright sunny morning, the 96ss had its world debut. It was jointly unveiled by Erik Carlsson (who was the rally driver of Saab in a 96 and who went on to become the ‘first superstar in the World of Rallying’) together with (‘the Flying Finn’, who also raced in a 96) in front of a large crowd of Saab enthusiasts. It was ‘introduced’ to the waiting crowds by Peter Backstrom the head of the Saab Car Museum. The unveiling was professionally captured on video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBCdsyfcqj8

It was warmly received and indeed, stole the show especially when it was started and ‘growled’ at the spectators. Simo then took it on a parade of honour around the crowded grounds of the museum.

Image

Our two managing directors were interviewed by TV, radio and newspaper reporters who respectively lavished praise on the car.
The 96ss will now remain in the Saab Car Museum until the end of July when it will return back to Waltham Cross in readiness for its UK debut at the forthcoming International Meeting of Saab Clubs in August 2013 in Kettering.
