Listen To The Williams-Developed Engine Of The $1.8-Million Singer 911

Singer has officially entered the hypercar realm with its latest creation, at least when it comes to the price tag, as that 964-based 911 you’re watching costs no less than $1.8 million.

Of course there’s a solid reason for this. Singer collaborated with Williams Advanced Engineering in order to create the world’s best air-cooled flat-six engine: a four-valve per cylinder, four-camshaft, naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six delivering 500 hp at an incredible 9,000rpm.

The new Porsche 911 by Singer is currently called the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study (DLS). Imagine a 964 featuring the absolute best in modern day materials and technology and you wouldn’t be far off.

Compared to other Singer 911s, the bodywork of the DLS has been re-engineered from an aero prospective as well. Gone is the front-axle lift thanks to a new spliter and optimized air vents, a roof channel and a rear spoiler. These revisions allow the rear ducktail wing to actually work and provide downforce. Other details include the side ram-air intakes on the windows, which feed fresh air to the masterpiece sitting behind the rear axle.

Just listen to the noises this thing makes: if they doesn’t make the hair on the back of your neck stand, then you deserve having your car guy card revoked. Does it deserve the eye-watering price tag? Apparently, and to the right people, it sure does.

    I think for the money I’ll take 6 speedsters right behind it

      hmmm

    Sounds like a race car, and from that second vid, looks about as difficult to drive, at least at slow speeds. It probably has some tuning left to be done before they go on sale.

    Stunning resto-mod with absurd price tag. I’d never spend that kind of money on it. For probably 1/5 the price you can make your own.

      ‘1/5 the price you can make your own.’

      Good luck with that….

        I think what he means is that you could pay professionals to do the same work for 1/5 the price. 1/5 id $360,000. So you could buy a base 964 for around $30,000 and spend $300,000 restoring and upgrading it and get a similar result. Singer doesn’t do 100% of it’s work in-house either. They sub contract a lot of their work out.

      • SteersUright

        Seriously? Buy a 964 ($35k), and then use your remaining $365 to restore it to perfection and then secure and install a very lovely Porsche GT3 engine in it from whatever generation.

    Couldn’t even afford one even if I sold my soul. 🙁

  • While I like Singer, they’ve just getting sillier every year. $1,8 million dollars, apparently in average Singer customer spend like $800k upwards for their cars, almost double of average when they are first in business. And you still got 2 year waiting list.

    • nastinupe

      Exactly, the market dictates the price and they have a small crew, so they are trying to maximize profits with higher end custom jobs. They are scalping customers from Porsche who are willing to pay ridiculous prices for GT3 RS’s and 911 R’s by giving them a more unique and boutique experience. I’ll take a Singer over a 911 R and I am sure that lot of other guys would too.

    It’s…It’s beautiful.

    I got chills watching this.
