As if this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed wasn’t awesome enough, American vintage Porsche 911 specialist Singer Automotive announced they, too, are coming this year and they are bringing something sick called Singer 911 Newcastle.
As you may know, Singer Porsches are built to order and they usually name these cars after the cities where they are headed. So that leaves us in no doubt that Singer 911 Newcastle has been a British order, but just to make things clearer, the car is also right-hand-drive.
Set to “partake” in the famous hill climb challenge as part of this year’s Michelin Supercar Paddock, Singer 911 Newcastle relies on a 4.0-liter flat-six engine to keep up with the competition. As with the rest of this 1990 Porsche 911, the engine is completely revised and “reimagined” so the car actually stands a good chance of giving all those super cars a bloody nose.
Other highlights of the Newcastle include Brembo ceramic brakes, nickel-plated carbon fiber bumperettes, track-style front seats with folding rear seats, blue leather seats, ivory headliner, black leather dash and piano black seat backs. But the best part of this car, as with every other Singer 911, remains that glorious exterior which is a modern interpretation of the vintage car created with an artist’s eye and a craftsman’s hand.
