Where have we heard this one before?
Las Vegas’ own PSC Motors is ready to take down the big boys of the supercar world with its SP-200 SIN. Speaking to Autocar, the company said its hybrid will have 1,700 hp and do 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of over 280 mph. SIN will be powered by a mid-mounted 9.0-liter V8 sending power to the rear wheels, and when you combine that with the electric engine mounted at the rear axle you get 1,700 horses. The car will battle offerings from McLaren, Porsche, Ferrari and Koenigsegg.
The SP-200 SIN will weigh in at a hair over 3,000 pounds and will be made mostly of carbon fiber and aluminum. The CEO of PSC Motors, Antonio Calva, tells Autocar SIN will be shown on June 1 and production will start in 2016. Only 35 will be made and no price has been given yet. All of this sounds awesome, but take it with a grain of salt. Remember when Lyons Motor Cars “debuted” its 1,700-hp LM2 Streamliner at the 2015 New York Auto Show? In case you missed it, the debut was a dud. All we saw was a formless shell on four wheels. Hopefully, things will go better for PSC Motors.
