`Restomod` is the term used today to best describe cars that have been modified and personalised to someone’s individual requirements and unlike original restorations where the provenance of the car is paramount and any restoration correctly executed to guarantee its value, with a Restomod, there are no rules.
When it comes to the 911, Singer is probably the most prolific, with its latest Restomod, the new DLS, costing a cool 1.8 million dollars and that’s without a donor car! Even its original version is reputedly now circa 750000 dollars for a conversion, ensuring one won’t be in every 911 enthusiast’s garage.
This particular car is a mechanically sound 1984 3.2 Carrera with 78,000 miles from new, that has been fitted with a widebody conversion inspired by the 70s 911RSR.
Originally painted by Carrera bodyworks in Bury St Edmunds and finished in Sport Classic Grey which is an original limited-edition Porsche colour, it is fitted with black centred 17” split rim Fuchs inspired alloys, RUF CTR style door mirrors and soft tint side windows to give a subtle but aggressive look.
Inside, it is fitted with lightweight door cards and carpet, an Alcantara trimmed dashboard and door tops, WEVO gearshift, momo steering wheel and adjustable OMP sports seats with Sabelt harnesses.
A sports exhaust and air filter provide circa 240BHP with a purposeful soundtrack too. This together with a 1000KG kerb weight, super grip from the wide 17” wheels ensure this 911 is a sharp performer that can embarrass more modern machinery on your favourite country road.
Recent bodywork restoration to the B post and kidney bowl areas has recently been carried out to ensure this 911 is rock solid again.
