So Singer has plans for the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Over the past few years, Singer has become a regular highlight of this amazing bucket list car enthusiast event in the UK. So, it may not be a surprise that the California builder of the ultimate 911 backdate reinterpretations would be going. However, this one detail certainly seems to suggest they’ve got something special up their sleeves.
Here’s what we do know about the teaser. It’s a shot of a carbon fiber and leather steering wheel produced by Momo and designed by Daniel Simon Design. Like many Singer components, it looks to be materially very impressive, with just the right mix of modern manufacturing and classic design. Quite likely, like most Singer components, you’ll also need to buy the whole car to get one.
Here’s where we prognosticate what this teaser means. In case you hadn’t already figured it out, we’re expecting this teaser confirms that the much-anticipated Dynamics and Lightweighting Study being co-developed with Williams Engineering will finally make a real world showing and do some runs up the hill at Goodwood.
For those keeping track, most details of the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study have been revealed. Detailed renderings of a 3-D model have made their rounds. So too have 964 development mule videos that have given us a peek at what’s to come. Even still, the real car has yet to be seen and it seems reasonable to expect that a grand experiment to build the ultimate lightweight Singer would include such an exquisite (and lightweight) steering wheel.
Expect more to come on July 12 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, as Singer has confirmed in the aforementioned Instagram post.
