I’ll take a RUF SCR instead please…….cheaper, better looking and arguably just as well engineered.

the look is not really to my taste - I'd rather buy a Pagani (at that price point) with the overdone design work, seems more fitting / seems a
I don't think £2M would get you into any Pagani these days.

this one would do perfectly fine as a daily for me - do not need any of the more fancy stuff. At this price point it kind of makes sense, not much more than a 812 GTS or similar and would be less conspicuous as a daily.

4K miles, I wonder when it was built ?
Those seats would have to go ... and all that blue paint inside. Another 30-50hp wouldn't go amiss either biggrin
Saying all that, it's "cheap" for a Singer. Buy it, send it back to LA and have it fettled to your chosen spec. Job jobbed.

I always liked Chris Harris' green 911. Anyone know what became of it?

Didn't PH'er WTDoom own it ? Has he crashed it ?
Unless it was well and truly rolled into a ball, I'd have thought it would gone again.

I can appreciate the engineering and attention to detail.
Some real treats in there…

The cost/pricing argument is something separate… because you’re paying for a bespoke project.
It’s not a product.
Stunning and superb though it is, I think I'd rather have all the mechanical components shoehorned into a stock looking, (though carbon fibre) widebody 964 without any sort of rear wing :







Or a 993 RSR lookalike with a ducktail perhaps ... scratchchin











Or maybe just go for the full on Rennsport look but with a beautifully trimmed RS Comfort/roadgoing interior :





scratchchin
Those spoilerless wide bodied 964s are stunning.

All stunning above and I bet you get 90% of the Singer driving experience.

Nice thing but you can build something that is pretty much as good dynamically for 1.9 million less.

Just noticed, the DLS dispenses with the "standard" Singer's somewhat naff through glass mounted door mirrors, so that's a win smileHowever, the more I look at that DLS rev counter, the more vomit inducing it is.
But credit where credit is due, Dickenson and his team have done an amazing job.

I'd still prefer all the greasy bits shoehorned into one of these though :

Is the DLS actually road legal. It doesn’t have numberplates in the video. ?

Yes. I imagine they left the plates off because of either privacy or spoiling the aesthetic, or both.

Pretty sure I followed one of these down the A361 from Daventry this evening, dark green, Singer logo on the boot, F prefix registration. Lovely but didn't appear to like the lumpy Northants tarmac much.
