With a company name like Sin Cars, the vehicle has to be pretty badass right? Yes, that is correct. How badass? How about 0 to 60mph in a lightning quick 2.5 seconds and a top speed of over 200mph according to the car maker. The Sin R1 first made an appearance at the 2013 Autosport International event and returned to make another appearance as the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Sin Cars is a German company with its headquarters in Munich and the company specializes in building race cars for private customers but has now ventured into the car manufacturing business. The Sin R1 is a mid-engine sports car built around a tubular space frame chassis and a carbon composite passenger cell which allows it to have a low weight of 2,645 pounds.
The Sin R1 is powered by a tuned Corvette LS3 6.2-liter V8 engine which produces a mighty 525hp and delivers it to the rear wheels via a Graziano six-speed manual gearbox. The vehicle also makes use of an AP Racing brake system, 19-inch wheels from Braid, and a Titan steering rack. The weight distribution on the vehicle is 40/60 front to rear.
Sin Cars plans on releasing the R1 that is street legal as well as track-only variants. No word yet on the pricing but expect it to be up the pricey side. It’s nice to see small automakers come up with vehicles once in a while. Unlike the Racasse Supercar this one is actually pretty nice looking.
