Singer’s latest 911 restoration project is worth drooling over image

Singer Vehicle Design's restorations of the air-cooled generations of the 911 are worldwide renowned - and the prices reflect that - and that's mostly thanks to the obsessive attention to detail involved with the projects. Now these fantastic machines are set to become even more awesome and advanced thanks to a partnership between Singer and Williams Advanced Engineering that will make sure the absolute cutting edge technology resides underneath he body of the classic coupes.

Singer and Williams developed this auto for wealthy Porsche collector Scott Blattner, working with a Porsche Le Mans racecar designer named Norbert Singer (no relation to California's Singer Vehicle Design) to lend the project some serious aerodynamic cred.

We also get our first look at this car's interior, which combines the exterior's green with pretty reddish-brown leather racing seats.

This past summer, we told you about a classic Porsche flat-six engine that Singer Vehicle Design and the Williams Advanced Engineering F1 team restored and tuned for 500 hp, and now we know what auto that fantastic-looking motor will go into.

A 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat six spinning to over 9000rpm, producing 372kW and sitting in the rear of a 1990 911 weighing 990 kilograms.

The body went through a modern aerodynamic evaluation, and parts were replaced with magnesium, titanium and carbon fibre where possible. The Fuchs lookalike wheels, made by BBS, are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
