Singer Vehicle Design to make UK public debut at Goodwood
Since the turn of the decade, Singer Vehicle Design has gradually been racking up the column inches with their bespoke Porsche 911 reimaginings, built in an unassuming workshop just north of downtown Los Angeles.
The work of Rob Dickinson’s talented crew has not escaped our gaze, with numerous examples of Singer-restored Porsche 964s gracing Total 911’s pages (such as the ‘Brooklyn’ car in issue 110).
However, despite appearances at famous US shows and events, such as The Quail during last year’s Monterey Car Week, fans of Singer’s unique Porsche creations on the British side of the Atlantic have been unable to get up close and personal to the workmanship of the American firm. Until now.
At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed – taking place from 25-28 June – Singer will be in attendance on UK shores for the first time, bringing along two special cars that promise to wow British Porsche 911 fans.
Lord March’s annual hillclimb and automotive extravaganza will play host to the official debut of Singer’s very first 964 Targa reimagining. The open-top car, the first to feature Singer’s new Ed Pink Racing-developed 4.0-litre air-cooled flat six, will displayed on the Cartier Lawn.
Elsewhere, a UK-based Singer restored Coupe will take to the hillclimb course in the hands of sports car racing ace, Marino Franchitti and renowned automotive journalist, Chris Harris.
The 23rd running of the Festival of Speed will mark a homecoming of sorts for UK expat, Dickinson who feels “very fortunate to have been recognized by such regal dignitaries that have placed us on this coveted global stage.”
“Our little company has been known to chase the best in all we do – and it’s a true honour that such a prestigious event acknowledges our passion and commitment, as well as our precise indulgences.”
Although general admission for Saturday and Sunday’s action is now sold out, there are still tickets available for Friday’s running. To see Singer’s work in the metal, you can order your ticket through Goodwood’s dedicated booking service.
