Singer Vehicle Design, a tuner shop based in California, USA, worked with the engineer team of Williams Advanced Engineering to create what one could perhaps call the world’s most technically sophisticated Porsche 911 with an air-cooled engine. The car will later go on sale priced at U.S. $1.8 million.

You may have already seen the so-called DLSA 911 when it debuted at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California last summer. In just a week from now, the car will arrive at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland.

The unique 911 is based on a purpose-built four-liter inline-six engine. Created by Williams Advanced Engineering, the naturally aspirated engine incorporates a large number of innovative solutions, including F1-style fuel injectors, lightweight structure with titanium cylinder valves, four camshafts including two overhead cams, a sophisticated oil flow circuit and much more. The nominal output of the power unit amounts to 500 hp (447 kW) at a stellar 9,000 RPM. Shockingly, despite this, the engine still relies on normal airflow for all of its cooling purposes.

This particular Porsche 91 also sports an enhanced aerodynamic kit, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, and a custom 6-speed manual transmission.

The interior of the car houses Recaro carbon seats, a Momo steering wheel, a new instrument panel, a lightweight climate control system, and perforated carbon-titanium pedals. There are also quite a few driver aids and safety features on board.
