Dubbed the ‘Newcastle’ Singer Porsche, it will be driven at Goodwood by Chris Harris.
Singer Vehicle Designs, maker of the stunning Singer Porsche will make an appearance at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed coming up June 24 through 26, 2016. It will be joining the ranks of the Michelin Supercar Paddock with their latest UK creation.
Nicknamed ‘Newcastle’ to honor the geographical home of the donor vehicle, this 1990 Porsche 964 was restored to Singer standards of perfection. The vehicle will be driven up the hill by automotive journalist Chris Harris.
Powering the Newcastle Singer Porsche is a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat six engine making close to 390 horsepower and 315 pound-feet of torque. This is good enough to propel the Porsche from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 3.3 seconds and 0 to 100 miles per hour in 8.2 seconds. In terms of acceleration, this is super car performance.
The exterior of the Singer Porsche is painted Singer Racing While with ghosted light blue strings and blue lettering. The ‘Newcastle’ Porsche is absolutely stunning.
The inside of the Singer Porsche is just as stunning as the outside using a mix of the finest suede and leather finished in a Deep Royal Blue with piano black trim on selected areas. An orange tachometer and the always beautiful Momo Prototipo steering wheel contrasts nicely in a sea of blue.
“To partake in such a highly visible and globally recognized event is indeed an honor, and we are proud to be here and share the vision of our client’s desirers, as well as our very own personalized approach to creating a true celebration of the Porsche 99,” said Rob Dickinson, founder and creator of Singer Porsche Design.
