Bespoke Porsche 911 restoration firm Singer has unveiled its latest creation: The All-terrain Competition Study. The car pays homage to the era of Porsche rallying in the 1980s, re-imagining the air-cooled 911 as an all-terrain competition machine.
ALL-TERRAIN COMPETITION STUDY: HOMAGE TO PORSCHE’S RALLY HISTORY
The project was built at the request of one long-term client, who has commissioned two machines. The first, finished in Singer’s iconic Parallax White, is focused on high-speed desert rallying.
Meanwhile, the second – finished in Corsica Red – is configured for high-speed, high-grip tarmac events and disciplines.
The long-term client has also allowed Singer to build similar off-road capable cars for future clients.
The All-terrain Competition Study was conceived with the Baja 1000 and Dakar Rally in mind.
It is powered by a twin-turbocharged, 3.6-litre, air-cooled flat-6. Power output starts at 450hp and torque at 569Nm, but can be raised depending on the client’s demands or the event the car is participating in.
A 5-speed sequential dog-box puts power on the road through an all-wheel-drive system. It is comprised of front, centre and rear mechanical, plated limited-slip differentials.
At each corner of the car are five-way adjustable dampers offering increased suspension travel and ride height.
A long-range fuel tank, bespoke competition seats, and full FIA specification roll cage further prepare the All-terrain Competition Study for off-road duty.
The car is also equipped with a race GPS navigation system while both driver and navigator have access to in-seat rehydration systems.
Oh, and the car also sports a bespoke carbon fiber body, necessary to offset all the weight gained from the aforementioned modifications. The new body has also been optimised to allow easy access to mechanical components at service stops.
