Singer Turns to Cosworth for Custom Porsche 911
text size: A- A+
The Singer Porsche 911 managed to maintain most of its looks but hides a true power plant provided by Cosworth under the “old school” skin.
"We are thrilled to be involved with these incredible companies who together bring a wealth of heritage, intelligence and global engineering expertise to this labor of love. This is not just about re-imagining an icon; we're working in a collaborative spirit of excellence to build something that celebrates Porsche's genius and the air-cooled era of the world's most important sports car: the Porsche 911," said Singer Founder Rob Dickinson.
The tuning company which has tradition in manufacturing high performance engines for Formula One race cars has managed to put some “muscle” into the Porsche’s engine.
Cosworth will provide three air-cooled engines starting from a 3.6-liter with 300hp, a 3.9-liter with 380hp and a 3.9 or 4.0-liter with more than 425hp. In order to make the masterpiece complete the Aria Group will produce carbon fiber bodies that will bring back into the spotlight “the classic rod racing 911s of the ‘60’ and ‘70’s.”
The “retro stunner” will hit your wallet with $190,000.
