Singer finally reveals its 500-HP Porsche monster

15 Novembre 2017

Singer - Porsche 911 Recreation Masters - deliver a new 911 964 Dynamics and Lightweighting Study (DLS) option, with cars built by Williams in the UK. Again the result of the Singer-Williams relationship, the body has been designed in collaboration with Norbert Singer - no relation to the "re-imaginers", but rather the architect of many a Porsche Le Mans victory - using computational fluid dynamics. The original 3.6-litres had been bored out to 4.0, output was up from 247hp to 500hp, and it had a rev limit the right side of nine thousand. Lightweight mechanical components also help to keep the weight down, including magnesium and titanium used for the camshafts and cylinder heads.

This widebody's fenders wrap themselves around 18-inch BBS wheels made to look like the Fuchs rims that are so desirable on classic 911s; they may look old, but they're shod with modern Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires and fit around what appear to be huge Brembo brakes.

It's a classic 911 that has gone on a serious diet thanks to the extensive use of lightweight materials like carbon fibre, titanium, aluminum, and magnesium, and we love it. Road & Track shared these renderings of the auto from renowned artist Daniel Simon, though, so we'll let you decide for yourself on its looks.

Rowley took over leadership of the party in August this year after former leader Kezia Dugdale reigned. The father of three grown-up children is described as representing the left-wing of the Labour Party.

We also get our first look at this car's interior, which combines the exterior's green with pretty reddish-brown leather racing seats.

The development drivers are Marino Franchitti and Top Gear presenter and former Autocar staffer Chris Harris, and the cars are being built at Williams' Oxfordshire base, in their own build facility. Prices depend on the independent specification of each vehicle.
