OK, we know the Singer 911 isn’t exactly German, but allow us this, please? Singer Vehicle Design is well known for restoring and modifying existing Porsche models, but has also firmly established itself as the company to visit when you want a beautiful, bespoke 911 – and don’t necessarily have any cash flow problems.

Today, the Californian-based, run by owner and classic car nut, Rob Dickinson, has announced that SVD is joining forces with two legendary manufacturers: the Aria Group and Cosworth.

Those in the know will recognise the Aria Group as the guys to approach for high-quality concepts and prototypes built to Formula One standards. They will be responsible for creating those stunning carbon fibre bodies for Singer.

Another company that doesn’t actually need an introduction is Cosworth. Depending on your age, the name of the company set up by Mike Costin and the late, great Keith Duckworth may conjure up Sierra and Escort Cosworths, or more recently the Subaru Impreza. Motorsport fans will be aware of its involvement in Superbikes, World Touring Cars and, of course – Formula One, where Cosworth’s number of victories is second only to Ferrari. With that type of pedigree on board, you can understand why the Singer 911’s pricing goes beyond $500,000.

The three state-of-the-art air cooled units currently available, include a 300 hp Touring 3.6L, a 380 hp Sport 3.9L and a 425 hp 4.0L cup version. Plans are afoot to eventually offer these powerplants as aftermarket products under the “Singer Cosworth” brand.
