Sin R1 at Goodwood

This year at the 2013 edition of the Goodwood Festival of Speed that took place this last weekend, there was a very sharp looking white supercar which has participated in the hill-climb. To be really honest, the model is actually a development of a German manufacturer based in Munich, called R1. This particular carmaker is specialized in building racers for private customers and which now has ventured in a new business, developing cars. For a matter of fact, we had the opportunity to see the model for the first time in January at the 2013 edition of the Autosport International. The new Sin R1 was built around a tubular space frame chassis and carbon composite passenger cell that actually help reducing the weight down to only 1.200 kg. The weight ration reaches 40 / 60.

Under the hood it hides a LS3 6.2-liter V8 engine developed by General motors which is capable of producing 525 PS, or 518 horsepower, if you prefer. To transfer them all to the rear wheels, the engineers have provided a Graziano 6-speed manual transmission. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds and to reach a top speed of 320 km/h. The carmaker has also offered us some more details on their new R1. Aparently the model also includes an AP Racing brake system with 362 mm front and rear calipers, a Titan steering rack and also to transfer the output to the road, 19-inch wheels covered in 265 / 35 tires on the front and 325 / 30 tires on the rear. The carmaker plans to develop both a racing version of the R1, but also a street legal one. Time will decide and will tell us more.
