Quite simply, Goodwood is coming….
As motorsports enthusiasts prepare to gather for the Goodwood Festival of Speed® in West Sussex, June 23-26, Singer Vehicle Design is preparing to attend and showcase its most recent UK client-owned restoration, thanks to a second year invitation from Lord March to partake in Goodwood’s renowned Hillclimb event. Joining the ranks of the Michelin® Supercar Paddock and in a salute to its ‘Iconic Power’ theme, the 4.0-liter right-hand-drive Porsche 911® coupe that has been restored by Singer will be driven by UK favorite and automotive aficionado Chris Harris and will be on display both on and off the track throughout the Festival weekend.
The ‘Newcastle’ car, referred to for its intended geographic home, is a 1990 Porsche 911 that has been restored by Singer, and is but one example of the meticulous craftsmanship the company provides to its clients. The vehicle will offer supporters of the brand an opportunity to glimpse first-hand the attention to detail which Singer evokes in every car it has the chance to re-imagine.
According to Rob Dickinson, founder and creator of Singer Vehicle Design, an invitation to Goodwood’s Hillclimb is highly coveted and incredibly humbling. “Receiving a nod from Lord March, for not one — but two years in a row — provides some sense of arrival within one of the most valued communities of the motorsports world,” Dickinson noted. “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 desires, as well as our very own personalized approach to creating a true celebration of the Porsche 911.”
With a sport look that offers a performance edge, the rear-wheel-drive machine to be driven in the Hillclimb contains the first and only interior designed by Singer to-date with a ‘semi-suede’ Nubuck weave, placing the Nubuck on the outside along with a center weave mixing Nubuck with finished leather. The interior panels, tunnel and sills also retain the rich semi-suede materials. The ‘Deep Royal Blue’ coloring of the seats is enriched by the vehicle’s ‘Singer Racing White’ exterior, along with ghosted light blue stripes and blue Porsche® lettering.
