SINGER WILLIAMS DLS PHOTOS: SINGER
Like all the recent years Goodwood Festival of Speed It has left more than one acceleration for the enjoyment of those of us who enjoy the sound of the engines. Unfortunately it was not the Mercedes T80, which was not removed unfortunately from more than one ENT avid for dealing with both diminished ears and enlarged wallets. Its 3000CV of power sure would give for more than one ruptured eardrums, although those around 500 of our protagonist are not handicapped either.
We are talking about the Singer Williams DLS, the latest creature of Singer, the Californian house that has developed not a few mechanics as surprising as they are extreme under the skin of normally badass Porsche 911/964. All a reference "made in California"For fans to convert the already nervous"all behind”Germans in true beasts of the asphalt where the radicality of the classic series Porsche reaches heights worthy of a race car.
In fact, you still remember his penultimate creation ... That hand-crafted 911 with Williams engineers where the characteristic green color was just the appetizer for a range of specifications crowned by a magnificent air-cooled 500CV engine. And it is precisely about air we want to talk to you ... Because you will need to take it before listening to what his latest creation presented at Goodwood sounds like.
SINGER WILLIAMS DLS. MORE DYNAMIC, LIGHTER
Do you remember that anecdote about the woman who sued Porsche for the accident that her lover had suffered with her husband's 911? Restless and cornered after being caught "Red-handed" She blamed Porsche for the accident, arguing that if her cars were not so dangerous, her lover would not have crashed her husband's car and thus the infidelity would have been a secret.
Judicial delusions of a person ashamed apart ... The truth is that especially In the USA the Porsche 911 quickly gained a reputation as a small, light, dynamic and very fun sports car.. For many Americans driving it was beginning to be a challenge on the same level as taming an unpredictable and energetic Texan bull. Well, now imagine that someone thought of making a 911/964 something even lighter and more agile: the result exists and it is this Singer 911 DLS (Dynamics and Lightweighting Study).
As you can see, the qualities that Singer wanted to highlight are in the name of the model itself, which incorporates under its classic aesthetic all kinds of contemporary materials assembled to create the most cutting-edge technology. Technology you have in your 6-cylinder boxer engine, 24 valves, 4 liters and 500CV which according to Singer could be "The best air-cooled six-cylinder engine ever built".
Although the statement may be somewhat presumptuous, the truth is that Californians have been developing this ingenuity for 4 years, also counting on the advice of Williams and up to mythical Porsche engineer Hans Mezger -Responsible for the engine of the first 911, as well as the design of the 917-. Legendary firms that you can trust, especially if you are willing to shell out the million and a half euros that each of the 75 units to produce will cost.
SINGER WILLIAMS DLS: NOT JUST ENGINE
Beyond acquiring such an exclusive engine, the lucky owners of a Singer Williams DLS will be able to enjoy mechanics that are carefully handcrafted down to the last detail. Details that, not for having an unmistakable esthetic "Retro", they stop having elements such as carbon-ceramic disc brakes or spectacular Recaro seats made for this model.
All this wrapped in an improved aerodynamics where the reduction of height in the front axle makes the characteristic spoiler "Duck beak”Offer a increased downforce; something that surely more than one driver will appreciate when handling the widened rear cross member of the DLS, of which we have not been able to confirm the weight although we do intuit that it is equipped with a weight / power ratio that requires expertise at the wheel.
After the presentation at Goodwood of the DLS we can only put the countdown again until the new creation of Singer; the brand that today continues to be the leader in Porsche modification.
