Intially unveiled at Autosport International 2013 held annually in Birmingham, the Sin R1 race car was a truly potent supercar unfortunately limited to the track. Following on from the success of the racing variant, Sin Car GmbH as well as British company Pro Formance Metals are set to unveil a road-going version of the Sin R1 at next month’s Autosport International 2014!
Set to be produced in limited numbers next year, the road-going Sin R1 will be powered by a 500 hp Chevrolet sourced V8 engine. It will feature an FIA-homologated spaceframe chassis and will tip the scales at just 1,200 kg! Mated to this potent engine will be a motorsport developed six-speed transmission.
Other key features of the car include 362 mm disc brakes from AP Racing as well as a Formula One-style fuel tank created by M.E.RIN Safety Fuel.
When discussing the car, Pro Formance Metals Director Phil Matts said, “A lot’s happened since we started discussing the project at Autosport International 2012, initially as a one-off vehicle. If you told us where we’d be almost two years later, starting from a blank piece of paper, I wouldn’t have believed you.
We received a great reception when we unveiled the prototype race car in January, which has led to the development of the road-going version. Having both cars side-by-side at the 2014 show, ready for the open market, will be a very proud moment.”
