Singer Vehicle Design (SVD), the guys behind the uber cool retro-modern Porsche 911, announced a strategic partnership with British engineering firm Cosworth.
The Singer 911 as I’m sure you know features a modified body of the classic Porsche 911 from 1960s, but with modern underpinnings. That, as every motoring journalist will tell you, is the best of both worlds!
Staying loyal to the original 911, Singer uses air-cooled flat-six engines for their 911. They’ve already delivered three examples of the car, but from now on each car will be getting one of the three powertrians Coswroth will prepare for it. Thanks to this partnership, SVD is able to offer a full range of engine options, with three tiers of performance levels:
· Touring – 3.6-liter engine, producing 300 hp
· Sport – 3.9-liter engine, producing 380 hp
· Cup – 3.9 to 4.0-liter engine, producing more than 425hp
Singer has also inked a deal with composite experts Aria Group, who will prepare, paint and deliver all of Singer’s carbon fiber bodies.
If you are tempted to buy one of this beautiful machines, and I guess you are, be aware the prices for a Singer 911 ranges between $190,000 to more than $300,000, depending on a comprehensive selection of equipment which allows each customer to design a machine to their own specific tastes. It’s an expensive, but amazing toy.
