Singer Chamois Imp

Engine
383ci (6 litre) small block Chevy engine with alloy heads
520 bhp running super unleaded
640 bhp with a shot of nitrous

Gearbox
Corvette 4 speed manual shift auto box
(140mph plus in third and still another gear to go!)

Front
Modified Capri front struts, Rally design vented discs and Wilwood 4 pot callipers, 6 x 15 Compomotive wheels

Back
Mustang LSD axle narrowed with mustang callipers and modified Volvo discs, 8 x 15 Compomotive wheels

Bodywork
Still under construction, wings still need a lot of work having now removed the works arches I'm trying to get it more stock looking, hopefully getting all the panels sorted this winter and refit some of the original Chamois trim and paint it Oxford Blue.

Performance
1/4 mile 10.3 @ 138mph (0-138 mph in 10.3 seconds)
1/8 mile in 6.9 @ 110 mph (0-110 in 6.9 seconds)
These times are in full street trim on E-marked road tyres, exactly as you see here and how it's driven on the road.

Yes, it's road legal, MoT'ed, taxed, insured and as economical to run as a standard 875cc (well maybe not the last part).
