The Glorious Porsche 911 with 500 Horses

In mid-August, Singer Vehicles Design unveiled a 4.0 liter naturally aspirated, 500 hp engine, developed in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering (part of the Williams Group, which includes the F1 Williams team) and the famous Porsche mechanic Hans Mezger.

And now we get to see the first images of a new version Singer 911 created based on a Porsche 911 (964) from 1990. Because it is a better performance model than Singer’s usual stuff, it needed much more consistent changes.

Designed for Scott Blattner – a customer who already owns three Singer 911 copies, the new beast has panels made of carbon fiber, including flared wings and air incision roof. As a result, the model weighs just 990 kg!

The aerodynamic elements of the bodywork are prepared by Williams using a hydrodynamic computing system called CFD. This process will preserve the classical forms of the car and at the same time will significantly improve the aerodynamic characteristics compared to the original Porsche 911.

In addition to the 4.0-liter naturally aspirated single engine, EXE-TC developed special shock absorbers for this project and Hewland – a six-speed mechanical gearbox.

Added to this is an adjustable suspension, 18-inch BBS, magnesium alloy rims, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and Brembo carbon-ceramic braking mechanisms.
It was originally assumed that such a car would be launched in a single specimen for Blattner. However, Singer has decided to make 75 copies – they are to be assembled on Williams’ campus in the UK.

The price is unknown, but previous projects Singer did not cost less than 500,000 dollars.
