Meet the Sin R1, a Corvette V8-Powered Mystery

Goodwood Festival of Speed

Although few technical details about the Sin R1 available, images of the supercar at Goodwood are a wonderful tease.

Making its official debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Sin R1 is a Munich, Germany-produced supercar that’s powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 from the Chevy Corvette. This engine is paired to a Porsche 911 GT2-sourced gearbox that’s mounted at the rear. All told, the R1 is good for 525 horsepower, a claimed top speed of over 200 mph, and a 0-60 mph sprint time of only 2.5 seconds. The boutique supercar maker claims that its Sin R1 weighs only 2,645 lbs. and has a 40/60 weight distribution.

Other than those facts, we know very little else about the car. But we like what we’re seeing. Sin is also known for building race cars, and the R1 is its first street legal creation. The big question, however, is whether Sin will be able to turn itself into something along the lines of Pagani, or just fade off into the sunset the way too many other boutique supercar hopefuls have.
