Bulgaria's New Supercar Packs A Corvette Engine And Looks Deranged


Sin R1 RS is the craziest car out of Bulgaria.

The last time weheard about the Sin R1, which is a monstrous Corvette-powered supercar, was backat the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. At the time the supercar was a bit ofa mystery. We were also concerned with the automaker’s ability to turn into afull-fledged supercar maker and duke it out with the likes of Ferrari,Lamborghini and Pagani. A lot haschanged since then and Sin has engineered a road-going model of the R1, whichis being referred to as the R1 RS.

Sin Cars, whichwas based in Munich, Germany, has moved to Bulgaria and has started to showpotential customers the R1 RS ahead of the vehicle’s world debut at theupcoming 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. The R1 RS will boast a chassis that has atubular spaceframe design as well as a body adorned with carbon fiber. The enginewill be mid-mounted and will have three performance levels - a 6.2-liter LS3 V8making 430 hp, a 7.0-liter LS7 producing 530 hp or a fire breathing 650-hpfrom a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9. The power is put down through a paddle-shifted sequential transmission as standard, but the supercar is also available with a proper six-speed manual, as well.

Sin has done its homework to ensure that the vehicle corners like a true supercar and hasfitted the R1 RS with push-rod suspension with double wishbones at the frontand rear. With a scant weight of 2,535 lbs, the R1 RS is expected to sprint to62 mph in 3.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 186 mph. We can’t waituntil the Frankfurt Auto Show on September 17 to get a close-uplook at the insane R1 RS.
