SIN R1, an aggressive-looking and extremely fast car turned quite a few heads at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. It turned out that the white little beast is manufactured in a small Munich workshop specialized in building race cars using the outgoing Chevy Corvette’s 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine.

The old-fashioned and sturdy engine delivers 525 PS (equal to 518 HP) on the rear wheels through a 6-speed Graziano manual gearbox borrowed from a Porsche 911 GT2. This kind of simple, reliable technology is used all around the car: it has a light space frame chassis and a carbon fiber passenger cell, now standard in just about any car of this performance. Despite its relatively low-tech approach, the Sin R1 is extremely lightweight: it tips scales at only 1200 kg.

Before you think that the SIN R1 is just another super car from some unheard workshop, take a look at the performance sheet. The SIN R1 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 2.5 seconds (about as fast as a Bugatti Veyron), and can reach a top speed somewhere above 322 km/h (200 mph). This kind of performance places the SIN R1 well in the million dollar super car category, but none of those cars looks to be so simple and robust as the SIN R1.

While the SIN R1 is street legal, it is clear that it is really intended for racetrack use. According to the manufacturer, the SIN R1 has a 40/60 front to rear end distribution, so in experienced hands, the car promises to be extremely agile along curves.

The SIN R1 uses an AP Racing brake system (362 mm front /rear racing calipers), a Titan steering rack, and 19-inch wheels in tires size 265/35 and 325/30 front and rear respectively. But the best thing about the Sin R1 is that it can be easily customized according to the wishes of customers.
