Neo Bros Custom Built Mini F56 Challenge Race Car


A rare opportunity to purchase this custom built Mini F56 Challenge race car built and developed by Neo Brothers Ltd. For over 25 years, Neo Brothers has specialised in Saab parts and still remains as Europe's leading independent Saab parts supplier. Over the years, they have built and developed a fleet of track cars used to promote the company and showcase their work, services and parts at various track days, events and exhibitions in and around the UK. During this time, they have also built various other vehicles including three Saab limousines, a Saab pick-up, a Grinnall Scorpion powered by a Saab 9-3 2.0 petrol engine (tuned to 420bhp), a 1973 Saab 96 widebody classic, which used the chassis and running gear from a 2003 9-3 and a 96 track car (known as the bumble bee), which was officially unveiled at the Saab Festival in Trollhattan by rally legends Erick Carlsson and Simo Lampinen. The car was stored in the Saab Museum for some time and undoubtedly became the most famous Saab’s on the internet. An offer was then made on the car and it was sold shortly aftwerwards to a well known (Scandinavian inspired) car detailing brand who now use it for marketing purposes at similar events and exhibitions. It’s fair to say that Neo Brothers are no novices when it comes to building one off masterpieces!

Since production of the Saab models came to an end in 2012, the company has grown from strength to strength and the company now specialise in BMW Mini parts as well as Saab parts. For their next project, the team wanted to build something truly spectacular and thought there would be no better way to promote the business than to create a fusion between the two brands which they specialise in! This is exactly what they did and the Mini F93 Challenge was born…

A Mini F56 Cooper S, fitted with a tuned B207 engine and gearbox from a Saab 9-3 2.0 Turbo…

The combination of the above, results in a track car which is extremely lightweight and nimble with exceptional handling whilst maintaining the power and reliability of the Saab. Further specification includes:

The car is an ultimate track weapon and can be driven at any (non competitive) track day or event. Unfortuntely, due to lack of time and other business comitments, Neo Brothers have not been able to participate in such events as much as they would have liked to, hence the reason for the sale. This is a rare, one time opportunity to purchase an extremley reliable, well developed track car which can be enjoyed and used to promote any business at similar track days, events and exhibisions. The livery can be removed and the car can be rewrapped in any livery to suit another company's branding.
