When the Porsche restorers at Singer Vehicle Design announced they were partnering with racing firm Williams Advanced Engineering, we were excited without having seen anything. Even more so after we saw their first collaboration. And now that we’ve seen their latest project together, we’re wondering who we have to kill to get some seat time.

This is the Singer Vehicle Design DLS Goodwood. The DLS stands for “Dynamics and Lightweighting Study,” and it’s a 1990 Porsche 964 whose owner requested Singer and Williams restore and modify his car with an emphasis on—you guessed it—reducing weight. And as you probably guessed from the name, it’s set to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

Also, it looks rad, like all of Singer’s restored cars. That goes without saying.

Let’s talk specs. This guy has a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat six done up by Williams so it’s good for 500 horsepower at a howling 9,000 RPM. The motor boasts lightweight throttle bodies with supposedly F1-inspired upper and lower injectors, a unique oil lubrication system and it has dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. They moved it forward for better weight distribution too.

World Sportscar 1990 | Montreal | Peugeot 905 prototype

Duke Video
Published on Sep 12, 2018

The Peugeot 905 was a technically advanced sportscar prototype featuring a carbon fibre chassis engineered by Dassault and powered by a light alloy SA35-A1 3499 cc naturally aspirated V10 engine that was similar to F1 engines of the time.

The Peugeot 905 made its racing debut in the final few races of the 1990 FIA World Sportscar Championship with Jean-Pierre Jabouille and Keke Rosberg sharing the wheel. The car was slower than the contemporary Group C Sports Prototypes but was notably quicker than the other 3.5 litre Sports-Prototypes competing in the 1990 World Sportscar Championship season.

The 1990 World Sportscar Championship saw a long running battle between the ‘Silver Arrows’ of Team Sauber Mercedes and the ‘big cats’ of the Silk Cut Jaguar XJR-11s. The grid was packed with talented drivers at every circuit visited, guaranteeing top-quality entertainment for the record crowds. Jochen Mass, Jean-Louis Schlesser, Mauro Baldi, Martin Brundle and Alain Ferté were among the winners, along with a little known German driver by the name of Michael Schumacher…

Starting in Japan in April the WSC circus moved through the classic European circuits during the summer before crossing the Atlantic to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and culminating at Mexico City in October.

Hero Drives – Michael Schumacher – 1990 World Sportscars

Form is temporary, class is permanent and Michael Schumacher was pure class. Even from his early days of competing in World Sportscars, Schumacher just made it look easy, as can be seen here from 1990 as he charged through the field at the Dijon-Prenois circuit.

These were heavenly days … fantastic cars and fantastic drivers … it was … ecstasy.

When I was transplanted from the wood to the suburbs, I got into cars. Started out with dragsters, of which this is a fine example. I discovered sportscars soon after, but these critters are still mighty impressive. As is getting up over 200mph in only 1,300 feet or so…

Posing with the Esprit, an exceptionally fine handling car and quite large and luxurious for a Lotus. Nice jet, too, from Team Lotus major sponsor for many millions of years, John Player.

Such lovely cars from this man and company… legends all, really.

They did require some patience with build, but, hey…

If only.

VW 166 Schwimmwagen Original Movie 1943

Ferdinand Porsche’s Masterpiece. N-Joy the Original. (c) проект “Трофейные машины” http://trofmash.ru

A truly classic vehicle in every sense of the word.

This clip is a fabulous find and I extend many PentaProps™ to the uploader.

The wagen was sort of semi-recreated back in the day with the late, lamented VW Thing.

The Thing didn’t swim, though.
