What do you get when you cross a Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer with an off-road racing buggy? Well… this - the All-terrain Competition Study (ACS) - a co-developed project between Singer and British company Tuthill Porsche. Built at the request of a client who wanted an air-cooled 911 that could cope with the world’s most extreme off-road races, it pays homage to a golden era of Porsche rallying in the 1980s and to cars like the 959 Safari. It has four-wheel drive, a turbocharged flat-six, carbon panels, trick suspension and a stripped out interior, but still retains the outrageous attention to detail of all Singer’s creations. See it in action, allow Jack Rix to give you the full tour and hear from the man responsible for engineering this restomod monster - Richard Tuthill.

  • Could you imagine if they built the other car into a road/track version of this? With watercooled heads and adjustable hydraulic suspension? Max boost and a choice set of rims? This beast is already sexy as hell...

  • I wonder if he does any other impersonations besides Hammond. The interview and discussion is less Top Gear and more, Leno’s Garage.

  • After all these years, they're still trying to replicate the original trio and it's just terrible. This guy seems like he wants to do his own thing but is forced to act like hammond, so it turns out like very awkward balance between doing the car journalist and acting jobs.

  • They should make a mod for the modern Renault Alpine to be a rally car as well, or if not a mod they should remake it yo look like the new iteration of the Alpine rally car (I know they are mainly invested in Porche but the idea just popped out in my mind)
