The First 911 Restored By Singer With A 500 HP Williams Engine Looks Phenomenal

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.

The Singer model is a result of a dynamics and lightweight study carried out with Williams which meant to help meet Singer clients' demand for more power, lighter weight and more hardcore dynamics. The original 3.6-litres had been bored out to 4.0, output was up from 247hp to 500hp, and it had a rev limit the right side of nine thousand. The engine was revealed past year, but the full auto has just made its online debut. Lightweight mechanical components also help to keep the weight down, including magnesium and titanium used for the camshafts and cylinder heads.

Inside, the blood orange and absinthe body colours extend to the interior, which has orange leather-trimmed bucket seats and exposed bodywork.

This widebody's fenders wrap themselves around 18-inch BBS wheels made to look like the Fuchs rims that are so desirable on classic 911s; they may look old, but they're shod with modern Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires and fit around what appear to be huge Brembo brakes.

"But the vehicle is not just a bit of titivation and a new engine, there's also advanced aerodynamics created by Williams' and their CFD expertise, lighter suspension with bespoke dampers and modified geometry, carbon Brembos and a set of 18" forged magnesium BBS wheels.

The development drivers are Marino Franchitti and Top Gear presenter and former Autocar staffer Chris Harris, and the cars are being built at Williams' Oxfordshire base, in their own build facility.
