California-based luxury automotive brand, Singer Group, recognised worldwide for its restorations of air-cooled Porsche 911s, has appointed Australian-based Zagame Automotive Group to its global partner network.
“Owners in Australia and New Zealand will be able to learn about Singer’s services and discuss their requirements in a sophisticated and welcoming environment, surrounded by a high level of customer support from the deeply experienced team at Zagame Automotive. The announcement also means that Singer’s clients will have access to expert, in-country servicing, and maintenance from a trusted partner,” said Zagame.
Founder and Executive Chairman of Singer, Rob Dickinson said the company is excited to reach new audiences. We’re humbled to be in touch with enthusiasts in Australia and New Zealand who wish to commission our services in pursuit of their personal vision for the ultimate air-cooled 911. We’re thrilled to be collaborating with these owners and to be building a strong local presence. As our client group expands around the world, we need partners of the highest calibre to look after them. I’m delighted that Zagame Automotive Group will be there to support our amazing owners in Australia and New Zealand.”
Bobby Zagame, Managing Director of Zagame Automotive Group, said he is delighted by the Singer appointment. “Over the last 20 years, Zagame Automotive Group has carefully built our pre-eminent reputation in the world of sports, luxury and performance vehicles. We’re very excited to be at the forefront of supporting Singer’s clients in Australia and New Zealand and together we look forward to seeing more of these beautiful cars on the road here. Our passion, commitment and focus on the ownership experience is what sets Zagame Automotive apart.”
A Porsche 911 re-imagined by Singer, named North Island commission by its owner, is already on the road in New Zealand, presented with carbon fibre bodywork in Olive paintwork with black stripes and lettering. The interior is trimmed in Chocolate Brown. Touring seats with four-way adjustment, and perforated leather inserts have been selected. The car is powered by a 3.8L, naturally aspirated, air-cooled flat-six, paired with a manual transmission. The first restoration for an owner in Australia will arrive later in 2021.
While the commission is a rear-wheel-drive example, owners around the world are able to undertake all-wheel-drive restorations. Left-hand-drive or right-hand-drive cars can be restored, and Singer’s special wishes department handles client requests for bespoke details and engineering, ranging from trim finishes through to ski-racks, spotlights, or alternative wheel design.
