    I especially like that it's full of carbon lightness, but looks like a traditional 911 hotrod should. Suck it, Singer!

    Not sure....

    In the vid he says:
    - Normally asperated
    - 3.1 lt.
    - 4 valve
    - 4 cam
    - 350 HP
    - 11,000 RPM

    I'm just wondering how they made carbon fiber Fuchs looking wheels ....

    I dont know if those wheels were made in the UK or not but Carbon Revolution here in Australia make OEM carbon wheels for Ferrari, Ford special vehicles ( A couple of Mustangs and Ford GT), GM (some corvettes), JLR for a Range Rover Sport and Renault for the RenaultSport Megane RS Trophy R

    they claim that Carbon Revolution wheels are up to 40-50% lighter than aluminium wheels. On the road, this means improved fuel efficiency, and increased range for EVs. range, performance, handling, as well as being much stronger with reduced NVH

    here is their website https://www.carbonrev.com/wheels/

    Very different cars. A friend of mine was faster in Laguna Seca in his Singer than this car, driven by someone equally good driver, last week.

    I prefer the Tuthill's approach, that said, a kind of super 911 R.
