Cosworth supplies Singer Vehicle Design
Los Angeles-November 17, 2011-The Singer Vehicle Design (SVD) "Reimagined" Porsche 911 was revealed to the world stage on November 16th at the Notion Studio in Los Angeles. This iconic, no expense spared, Cosworth powered machine is based on the 964 model of the Porsche 911 (1990-1994). SVD's work involves taking a customer's existing vehicle and performing both restorative work and cutting-edge modifications to update the car's performance, aesthetics and modern day use-ability in an attempt to optimize its strengths, while preserving the essence and magic of the original. SVD sees these restorative and modification procedures as a modest contribution to the recycling culture and a method whereby older vehicles are reclaimed and perhaps saved from an uncertain future.
According to Rob Dickinson, Singer's founder and creative director, this particular machine boasts a combination of touring, luxury and sporting options that while perhaps extravagant, attempts to create the perfect gentleman's sports car for the road. "With each restoration we strive to find the right blend of classic 911 character and technical sophistication, and thanks to Cosworth, and a small village of gifted artisans and craftsmen here in Southern California, we're celebrating the most important sports car in the world."
Cosworth's Ken Anderson Vice President of Performance Aftermarket said, "we are delighted to be working with Singer Vehicle Design on this project. Cleary, Singer required the absolute best of everything and we were able to present them with precision engine assembly at a professional motorsport grade level. Our engine build and test facility in Los Angeles is world class with highly skilled staff that assemble everything from endurance racing engines to Grand Prix Formula One power units. The Singer program fits well with our ethos of perfection and great attention to detail."
The engine program presents advanced theory and development in all areas including assembly techniques, cylinder head design with intake and exhaust optimization all geared towards delivering a completely drivable power unit with maximum reliable power.
