    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    I recon this is some sort of testbed, right?
    Does a Singer equipped with this engine need additional air inlets like this in the rear fenders?

    Yes, it will be integrated through the rear windows, fabulous stuff.

    Yeah, I thought so as well, but the testcar in the movie has both (the ones in the fender and the ones in the rear window). I remembered those pictures and the extremely elegant solution of integrating the inlets in the rear windows, so I was surprised to see the ugly fender cut-outs. Maybe these are remnants of earlier tests when the window versions were not available yet? Smiley

    That was a replica of a 74 RSR (those vents were standard then and its just a tribute to that model)

    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    Who actually manufacturers the engine? Does Cosworth manufacture it, or did they just design it and give Singer the blueprints?

    It’s not just the engine it’s chassis, gear box ,  body, and brakes etc that are changed /upgraded. It’s a new model.

    Ah, interesting!

    That red one is a true connoisseur’s car. Smiley

    What is the reason for the choice of red , by the way? Any personal or a historic Porsche reference that I fail to see?

    Midnight blue does look good on the car but makes the car a bit too serene looking for my taste.

    I went in that direction because of the name "London". Long bus, post box, telephone box  .. you get my drift. I'm not a fan of Guards Red so went for a Singer one which was darker and more complex. Ironically its called "Rome Red"  !

    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    Stunning. This is the only car that I could dream about owning. I love these classic solid colors and bold interiors. If only heir prices had stayed reasonable... Oh well, can’t do it all, my wife and I are funding this pretty large charity project instead Smiley
