Singer Vehicle Design (@singervehicledesign) is proud to present the results of its Dynamics and Lightweighting Study (DLS) at the 2018 @fosgoodwood July 12-15. The unique and highly anticipated results will be part of both a static showcase outside Goodwood House and the Michelin Supercar Paddock Hillclimb Run.
Our sincere thanks and appreciation go out to all of our partners in this project:
The naturally aspirated, air-cooled Porsche flat-six, developed by @williamsadvancedengineering with technical advice and consultancy from Hanz Mezger.
– 4.0 liter displacement, titanium valves (four per cylinder), dual overhead cams
– 500 horsepower at 9,000 rpm
– Lightweight throttle bodies with F1-inspired upper and lower injectors to enhance performance and drivability
– Unique and optimized oiling system to improve lubrication and cooling
For the advanced aerodynamics of the Dynamics and Lightweighting Study, Singer Vehicle Design partnered with @williamsadvancedengineering with technical advice and consultancy from Norbert Singer. The result is that every surface of the car has been re-assessed through computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis. The changes include:
– Elimination of front axle lift through redesign of front oil-cooler intake and venting, together with new front splitter
– Optimization of one of the most iconic aerodynamic devices of the twentieth century – the ducktail spoiler.
– Roof-channel and roof/rear window spoiler working with optimized ducktail and diffuser to generate downforce at rear
– Optimization of engine intake and cooling performance through side-window ram-air intakes and rear deck-lid venting
