Californian 911 customization house will have two stunning cars on display at next week's Festival of Speed.
British creator and founder of Singer, Rob Dickinson, will make a triumphant return to his homeland next week, debuting the very first 911 Targa built by the Californian-based modification house, alongside a Porsche 911 coupe. Like most 911s that are restored and reimagined by Singer the 911 Targa is based on a 964 air-cooled model, adopting the classic exterior and modern interior format, providing owners with a cutting-edge driving machine cloaked in a stunning, bespoke 911 body.
For now, we have just a trio of images of the new car, but plenty of details. Finished in Targa gray with a nickel finish roll hoop, a collapsible soft top and one-piece carbon-fiber top, the “Montreal” car (which is where it will reside after debuting at Goodwood) boasts an orange interior with a leather and suede mixed weave. Power comes from a 4.0-liter flat-six built by Ed Pink Racing that sends 390 horses to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual. The one-off 911 Targa also comes with Ohlins suspension, racing orange calipers, raised gold letters on the deck, and a set of Fuchs-style wheels with nickel finish and black-pained centers.
The 911 Targa will be displayed on the Cartier Lawn next to a right-hand-drive 911 coupe that was recently restored by Singer and lives in the UK. The exquisite yellow coupe, boasting a specially-made 3.8-liter Cosworth engine mated to a six-speed manual, will be driven up the famed Goodwood hillclimb by Chris Harris and Marino Franchitti. Check back for live pics of the cars from the FOS next week.
