Singer’s Reimagined Porsche 911 DLS Sounds Absolutely Incredible

Video

We could listen to that air-cooled flat-six engine sing all day.

Without a doubt, one of the highlights of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed was the debut of Singer’s new reimagined Porsche 911. Described as the most advanced air-cooled Porsche 911 ever made, Singer collaborated with Williams Advanced Engineering to develop the car’s 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine that delivers 500 horsepower. Singer’s Porsche 911 DLS looked stunning when we saw it on display at Goodwood but wait until you see it in motion.

You can see the car in action as it charges up the famous Goodwood Hillclimb, where we get to hear its screaming air-cooled engine rev up to a glorious 9,000 rpm. Trust us, your ears are in for a treat. As the DLS (Dynamics and Lightweight Study) name implies, the car was also rationed on a strict diet to make it as light as possible. It’s based on a 1990 Porsche 911 964, but extensive use of carbon, magnesium and titanium materials have reduced the car’s weight down to just 2,182 pounds.

Singer also enlisted Hans Mezger, who developed Porsche's first flat-six unit, as a technical consultant along with a host of technical partners to help develop the project including Michelin, Bosch, and BBS Motorsport. Williams developed the car’s double wishbone front suspension featuring bespoke adjustable dampers, while Brembo provided the carbon ceramic brakes. Singer only intends to build 75 DLS 911s, and if you want one be prepared to shell out a whopping $1.8 million.
