Singer 911 DLS Attacks Nurburgring

Singer has made the ultimate air-cooled 911. Now, they take on the Nurburgring with it

A few months ago, we talked about the Singer 911 DLS, which is a 500 horsepower, air-cooled, rear-engine, masterpiece, based on the 964-generation of the Porsche 911. We’ve been hearing about the car since 2018, but it was just a few months ago when the first customer car was finally ready. To say that the 911 DLS is the ultimate interpretation of an air-cooled 911 is a bold statement, which is why Singer decided to take it for a spin at the Nürburgring for some real testing.

Singer will make ony 75 examples of the DLS
Each will cost $1.8 million

The ultimate, lightweight, air-cooled 911 relies on a normally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine, capable of 9,000 RPM and 500 horsepower, which was developed by Williams, with help from legendary Porsche engineer, Hans Mezger. The motorsport outfit also tweaked the aerodynamics and chassis of the DLS (Design and Lightweight Study). Power hits the ground through a bespoke set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Two tires, wrapping around BBS center-lock wheels.

We know that Singer will make only 75 911 DLS and each example will be priced around $1.8 million. We are curious to find out what numbers the Singer 911 DLS will lay during its tests at the “Green Hell”, but the combination of more than adequate power, light and nimble chassis, good aerodynamics, and high levels of grip should contribute to some impressive performance.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
