    Re: Donor vehicle for Singer Vehicle Design

    FROM TOP GEAR MAG

    It would seem that Singer has been busy with the collaborative networking, and has teamed up with Williams - a company famed for its Formula One expertise - to produce a new engine for serial Singer client Scott Blattner.

    Not only that, but the new motor has had a little help from none other than Hans Mezger, the ‘father of the flat-six’. Which means it has a roll-call of industry excellence behind it before it even sets fire to any fuel. But here’s the good bit, and engineers and petrolheads might want to have a little sit-down:

    Based on Mezger’s own flat-six 3.6-litre motor from a 1990 Porsche 911, the new engine is pulled out to 4.0-litres and has a basic 500bhp with four-valve cylinder heads and four cams, titanium con-rods, better oil circulation, aluminium throttle bodies, upper and lower injectors, an inconel/titanium - the stuff they use in F1 - exhaust system, carbonfibre intake trumpets and a carbon air box with a resonator chamber to increase mid-range torque, ram-air induction, and a 9,000rpm redline.

    Yep, that’s a 500bhp Mezger flat-six with a 9k redline. Which really deserves only one reaction. Oooooof.

    Obviously there’s been lots of component-lightening and use of exotic materials, because… well…because Singer. And though it’s not the prettiest Singerised six in the world, looking more like a droid from Star Wars with that big fan on the back (that’ll be the optimised cooling, then), it does look incredibly well executed. And I’ll just say this again: 500bhp n/a and 9k.

    Apparently the new motor is set to drop into Blattner’s 1990 911, no doubt re-engineered to suit by Singer to sit next to his pair of Singer-modified Coupes. And his Targa - which you may have seen it at Goodwood Festival of Speed this year. It turns out you can really dislike someone having never even met them.

    Rob Dickinson, boss and founder of Singer, did the usual PR bit by saying: “Helping our clients realise their unique vision for a reimagined Porsche 911 with the help of automotive royalty is very much a privilege. Singer is delighted to be working with Williams Advanced Engineering and Hans Mezger to offer our clients a “next level” of restoration and modification services for their Porsche 911s.” 

    But buried in the press release is also a bit that says that the “full culmination of this exciting work with Williams and other technical partners will be revealed shortly and will represent a stand-alone selection of restoration and modification services strongly oriented toward light-weighting and dynamic gains”.

    Which hints that a) this engine probably isn’t a one-off and b) other stuff is probably coming. And the engineering behind it is going to be pretty damn fine.

    Are you sure Cosworth is involved?  Singer and Cosworth divorced from each other years ago (in favor of Ed Pink Racing).  I think Williams is involved, but not so sure about Cosworth...

    Singer Vehicle Design Announces Collaboration With Williams On High Performance And Light-Weighting Services


    The Porsche 911 engine presented here is part of a stand-alone selection of restoration and modification services strongly oriented towards light-weighting and dynamic gains.

    - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -

    LOS ANGELES, August 8, 2017 – Singer Vehicle Design announces details of a new level of restoration and modification services commissioned by three of its clients for their air-cooled Porsche 911s. To meet the high-performance and light-weighting goals required for the restorations, Singer has undertaken a performance research study with Williams Advanced Engineering, part of Williams Grand Prix Engineering Group, and engaged the celebrated motorsports concern to engineer technical modifications and components for these restored and reimagined Porsche 911s.

    The first fruit of this work is a modified, naturally aspirated, air-cooled, flat-six Porsche 911 engine with a 4.0L capacity, four-valves per cylinder and four cam-shafts, rated at 500HP.

    The engine benefits from the additional insight and vast experience of famed engine designer and engineer, Hans Mezger, who is a technical consultant to the project.

    The engine will power a 1990 Porsche 911 currently being restored for long-term Singer client, Scott Blattner.

    The full spectrum of the enhancements provided by Williams Advanced Engineering and other technical partners will be unveiled in Scott’s restored, reimagined and reborn Porsche 911 in September.

    Beginning with the Mezger-designed Porsche 3.6L engine from the 1990 911, the resulting specification is as follows:

    • 500HP
    • Four-valve cylinder heads
    • Engine speed range extended beyond 9,000 rpm
    • Dual-oil circuits
    • Cylinders and pistons with titanium con-rods
    • Aluminum throttle bodies with carbon fiber trumpets
    • Upper and lower injectors for improved performance
    • A carbon fiber air-box with active multi-stage resonator chamber for mid-range torque optimization
    • Inconel and titanium exhaust system optimized for thermal performance
    • CFD optimized and enlarged engine cooling fan
    • Ram air induction system with pressure recovery in intake plenums
    • Lightweight materials, including titanium, magnesium and carbon fiber are used extensively to reduce component mass and vehicle weight.

    As ever, Singer’s work is motivated by the desire to understand the perspectives and requirements of its clients and to present them uniquely personal restoration and modification services – always guided by the philosophy:  Everything is Important.

    Rob Dickinson, Founder of Singer Vehicle Design, explained:

    “Helping our clients realize their unique vision for a reimagined Porsche 911 with the help of automotive royalty is very much a privilege. Singer is delighted to be working with Williams Advanced Engineering and Hans Mezger to offer our clients a “next level” of restoration and modification services for their Porsche 911s.  With careful and dedicated development, this iconic air-cooled engine has much to give both its existing devotees and a generation of new enthusiasts.”

    Dickinson stated that the full culmination of this exciting work with Williams and other technical partners will be revealed shortly and will represent a stand-alone selection of restoration and modification services strongly oriented towards light-weighting and dynamic gains.

    Jonathan Williams, Williams Heritage Director, noted further:

    “The Porsche 911 has long been a standard bearer in the worlds of racing and advanced engineering – two things that we care deeply about at Williams. As an admirer of the 911, I’m thrilled that we’re working with Singer and its clients on these restorations.”

    Singer client and commissioning owner, Scott Blattner, provided additional context saying:

    “My journey with Singer Vehicle Design began with the restoration of two coupes. In 2016 these were joined by my Targa, which recently ran in the famous Hill Climb at Goodwood Festival of Speed. I became intrigued by the possibility of further evolution and I’m very excited to be sharing the first details of the engine for my car.”

    Paul McNamara, Technical Director, Williams Advanced Engineering added:

    “This has been a fantastic opportunity to showcase the core capabilities of Williams Advanced Engineering. Having had the opportunity to consult with Hans Mezger – the “father” of the iconic air-cooled flat-six – about the development of the engine, our team was pleased to be able to provide a solution to Singer’s clients’ requirements and of course, to be a part of this iconic vehicle’s continued evolution.”

    You are right - no Cosworth involvement. The engine collaboration is largely with Williams.

    Someone on Rennlist is claiming that a Singer with this engine specified is costing $1.6MM.  So, I guess this motor is a 7-figure option, unless the car has some other big upgrades...

    If you look at the renderings it has a different body. Looks more like a 934 than a Singer.

    So maybe the engine is a bargain at around $750k? Smiley
