Singer announces collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering

10 August 2017

Singer Vehicle Design has revealed 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 motorsports concern to engineer technical modifications and components for the restored 911s.

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

Rob Dickinson, founder of Singer Vehicle Design, explained: “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.  With careful and dedicated development, this iconic air-cooled engine has much to give both its existing devotees and a generation of new enthusiasts.”

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.”

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.”
