Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer - DLS
What does it look like to take a vintage design 911 and reimagine it as the ultimate air-cooled Porsche?
It looks like the DLS from Singer – the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study – one of the most sought-after 911s in existence.
Singer, the automotive restoration group headed up by Rob Dickinson and based in Los Angeles, has developed a signature style that’s all about the smallest of details, as summed up by their slogan “Everything is important”.
Those details make all the difference - a carbon fiber body, plus advanced 4-liter air-cooled engine that spins past 9000 rpm, codeveloped with Formula 1 tech courtesy of Williams Engineering. Williams is also responsible for developing the suspension and the reworked aerodynamics. The whole thing also received technical input from the mind behind the GT3 engine, Hans Mezger.
The result of all the resources and detail work that went into creating the DLS is a production run of 75 cars, worth 1.8 million dollars each.

BMW 850C Si
Born out of BMW’s motorsport heritage and supplemented with then-cutting-edge technology, the 850CSi is the top-level iteration of the 8 Series. It was the first road car to offer a V12 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. That same V12 would eventually be lent to McLaren for use in the F1, the car that held the top speed record for a production vehicle for 12 years. Maybe you’ve heard of it.
The 8 Series was aimed at a high-end audience, with the 850C Si topping out at $100,000. Only 1500 models exist, as new emissions standards were put in place in the mid-90’s, and the 850C Si’s engine could not be adapted easily to meet them, so the variant was discontinued. That didn’t stop the 8 Series from becoming the most successful German V12 very made.

Mercedes AMG Hammer
A rare pre-partnership result of AMG tuning and engineering, the Hammer sports the body of a Mercedes 300E sedan, plus a heavily modified V8 that takes it from 0-60 in about 5 seconds, with a top speed of 178 mph. Every hot rod that has come out of Mercedes-AMG since owes a debt to the Hammer.
AMG’s record are spotty on how many of these were produced, but each was custom ordered so we know they were a rarity from the start, and they were not cheap; likely around $160,000 each.
It’s about as subtle as a hammer, but you can get one by completing the Seasonal Championship “Tree Hugger” in Spring.
