Could be your singer engine at the engine dyno shop somewhere in Southern California

Flow bench blueprinting of each cylinder head, cc'ing, makes every bit of HP that these engines can deliver.

I like Aubergine, maybe with a white or Ivory interior?

i visited Singer offices on Friday and spent a few hours looking at how these cars are put together, exploring various options and picking colors. the attention to detail on these cars is simply amazing.

i believe i am going to end up with the most lightweight Singer build ever: race seats, A/C delete, Stereo Delete; plus a few other tweaks that won't hurt achieve that goal: no sunroof, no rear seats, etc.

the only big thing left to do is pick out a color. right now i am torn between Battleship Grey and Downton Blue.

this is going to be a very difficult decision to make

that option wasn't offered to me. I thought doors have to be steel for safety reasons.

LOL... if we were in the same state, i'd make sure we don't have the same colors

i am leaning slightly toward battleship gray but on the other hand have many grey/dark cars already.

I agree the steel are safer, but I think they will do the carbon door if you wanted the lightest spec.
I struggled with color choice, like the car isn't unique enough I want a unique color, so nobody pic Aubergine.

Here is some track action, sounds great.

I have the normal steel doors and have to say in addition to being safer they also close with a great solid thud that may change if you go carbon.

Agree the cars should have unique colors if possible .. so many awesome possibilities. For example this set curated by your boy Le Corbusier .. pretty tasteful guy

order this color fan and go to town!

+1 on steel for the feel. You can integrate protection to address the safety issue (not sure how far Singer goes) but the feel of steel is superior IMHO. Most of my car is carbon, but the doors are steel for this reason.

Another vote for grey too, but I'm biased.

(This is why I bought two Graphite Grey 50th's. I'm partially obsessed with grey.)
