Singer Vehicle Design Dynamics and Lightweighting Study

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
