Today, we take a closer look at the Singer Vehicle Designs Newport Commission. This left hand drive coupe has the most unique exterior paint color I’ve seen on a Singer thus far. This is a Classic Study car, which means it was restored in Singer’s California center of excellence. This car was shared with the public in March 2022. The Newport commission is a 4.0 liter rear-wheel drive coupe presented in a deep Blue Blood exterior color.
The carbon fiber bodywork is presented in Blue Blood with light ghosted stripes and lettering. An external, center-mounted fuel filler is specified. The external, side-mounted oil filler is specified, together with a black ceramic exhaust system. Wheel are specified with closed lug nuts and wear Michelin PS4S tires, while brake calipers are presented in Singer Racing Orange with black lettering.
Powering the Newport commission is this 4.0L, naturally-aspirated, air-cooled flat-six. The engine is specified with a ceramic plenum finish and drives the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox. The carbon fiber rear engine cover features raised nickel lettering and badging complementing the Blue Blood exterior color.
The interior is trimmed in Cognac. Electrically adjustable sports seats are trimmed in Cognac and feature bespoke leather weave seat centers with nickel grommets and seat backs in piano black. The central tachometer is specified in Singer Racing Orange, with secondary gauges presented in black. Door panels are trimmed in Cognac with black handles and pulls. The sills, transmission tunnel and lower surfaces in the rear compartment are carpeted in black. The front luggage compartment is presented in black, with alabaster stitching.
