Albon makes confession about $1 million Porsche 911

Alex Albon was seen with a rare Porsche 911 made by Singer on his social media feed during the off-season, but the Williams driver has since made a confession about his ownership of the car.

Alex Albon has made a confession about the $950,000 Porsche 911 that featured on his social media accounts during the off-season. The Williams racer was seen driving the one-off special made by Singer Vehicle Design during a trip to Los Angeles. The classic car restoration company is based in the California US state and is not affiliated with Porsche. However, they sell 'reimagined' Porsche 911s which start at $475,000 and can reach up to $1.8 million. The wait list for one is around three years, but Albon confessed that he did not need to wait before he could drive one of his dream cars. "Firstly, I have to put it in there that I do not own the car, and I kind of wish I should have said that. But I know Rob Dickinson, who's the CEO of Singer, and I went karting with him one day, with Jenson Button," he told media, including RacingNews365.com . "I had a free day from my training, and I was like, 'Okay, how do I spend my free day best?' And I'm a huge fanboy of Singer, I love what they do."

Albon: Singer way cooler than Carlos and Lando's cars

Carlos Sainz took delivery of a bespoke 812 Competizione during the off-season, while Lando Norris designed his own McLaren Artura. While Albon admits that the Singer 911 is out of his price range, he does believe that it is a "way cooler" car than the ones used by his fellow drivers on the grid. He continued: "Unfortunately, I might need to renegotiate my contract to get a Singer. They might be a little bit out of my price range for now. "But yeah, I think that car is way cooler than Carlos' [Sainz] or Lando [Norris'] car, that's for sure."
