We’d written about the upcoming Sin R1 RS once before, but here’s the quick backstory.
The Sin R1 RS is the road-worthy version of the Sin R1, a company once based in Munich, Germany, producing track machines. Now, the Sin R1 RS is ready to take to the streets, although, the R1 RS is still much suited for track duties.
Motor Authority caught wind the Sin R1 RS is being shown to potential customers ahead of a rumored 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show debut, and customers may be impressed with the specs enough to hand over payment.
The chassis is a tubular space frame, wrapped in typical carbon-fiber body. The go-to for any supercar, obviously. So, why is this car being spoken of here, at GM Authority? Because there’s a familiar LS3 6.2-liter V8 under the hood, making 430 hp. That’s why.
But, wait there’s more. Customers will have two additional powertrain options. The LS7 7.0-liter V8 will be available producing 530 hp, and the Blue Devil’s LS9 6.2-liter V8, producing 650 hp, will be the craziest of consumers’ choices.
Buyers may pair any of the General Motors’ sourced engines to a sequential-automatic gearbox with paddle shifters, but a six-speed manual gearbox option will be available according to Sin. And all of that power is coupled to a curb-weight tipping the scales at just 2,535. Yes, it should be a very quick car.
Hopefully, Sin finds buyers to purchase this mad machine so we can see more of the car in action. If not, we’re not sure what will happen to the world’s latest oddball supercar.
