A Porsche 911 by Singer is being put up for auction. Dubbed “Newcastle Commission,” the car’s build is based on a 964 Carrera 2 that appeared in the U.K. market in 1990, complete with right-hand steering.

The vehicle was finished at the end of 2015, and it was bought by its current owner five years later. Singer began the project by stripping down the original car all the way to its bare chassis, fortifying its body, then, rebuilding it out of carbon-fiber.

The car’s exterior indulges in a rich cream arrangement, detailed with ghosted light blue stripes around the lower bumpers and flanks. Complementing these stripes are dark blue center petals, fixed onto 17-inch Fuchs-style alloy wheels and contrasting brass bolts. Furthermore, the car boasts sports suspension with Ohlins dampers and a steering rack in the style of a 993. The stock 964 brakes have also been replaced. Rounding up the vehicle’s design, the interior is lined with delicate blue suede finished with Singer’s signature “leatherweave” trims, while the rev counter pops with bright orange tones.

As for the engine, this beauty packs a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six, a slightly toned-down version of the six-cylinder, producing 390 HP, which lets the car go from zero to 100 mph in 8.2 seconds.

This reimagined Porsche 911 by Singer is currently up for auction at Collecting Cars’ website with just 1,100 miles. So far, the current highest bid is £550,000 GBP (approximately $751,781 USD).
