The Williams powered Singer 911 is your new dream car
This is the latest offering from Singer, a fully re-engineered, lightened 911 that’s packing a 500 horsepower Williams engine
Singer Vehicle Design has revealed yet another a new car. Yes, its another 911 as expected. But this time around its quite possibly one of the most stunning reworks of the iconic model the world has ever seen.
Its the first Singer 911 to be produced in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering and an entire host of motorsports companies with the aim of super lightness and speed.
The project started when one of Singer’s customers requested performance and weight reduction work on his 1990 Porsche 964. This led the company to team up with Williams along with an array of motorsport company's to create what it calls the “Dynamics and Lightweighting Study”.
The result of this partnership is a design that reduces the weight of the car to just 990kg thanks to a mixture of carbon-fibre, magnesium and titanium parts. The car you see here is also fitted with a full Williams spec CFD optimized front splitter, a central front oil-cooler intake, side oil-cooler venting and a stunningly designed ram-air induction system via the rear side windows of the car.
Power comes from a four-valve, quad-cam naturally aspirated 500 horsepower (493bhp) flat-six. This very pretty looking engine was developed by Williams Advanced Engineering, in consultation with famed Porsche engineer Hans Mezger. It's based on the iconic air-cooled flat-six 3.6-litre unit and has been outfitted with aluminium throttle bodies, titanium con rods and a special exhaust system.
Just stunning, and its not even in the car....
Owners have the pick of exclusive parts developed especially for the project from the world’s best automotive engineering companies. These include items such as Brembo lightweight brake calipers and carbon ceramic discs; BBS lightweight 18” forged magnesium 'Fuchs' style wheels shod in bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, a lightweight 6-speed manual box built by Hewland and bespoke damping by EXE-TC.
Singer has confirmed that the first customer cars have already started the rebuilding process with costs depending on what the wealthy owner specs. The program will only be available for 75 customer cars in total with all of the restoration and modification work taking place at the all-new Singer facility located in the Williams campus in Oxfordshire, UK.
The results of the DLS project speak for themselves, the very first customer car used as a testbed is finished in absinthe with blood red interior and generates huge amounts of want, I mean, just look at it, the sheer amount of detail in the gorgeous design is simply stunning.
