Sin Cars, a German supercar startup with close links to British parts supplier ProFormance Metals, has released a couple of teaser shots of a new model it plans to debut at the
Goodwood Festival of Speed
taking place in the U.K. over the next couple of days. Some readers may recall that Sin showed up with its first model, the R1
, at the Goodwood event last year, and now the company is promising the R2.
Looking at the teasers, it’s clear the R2 is based on the previous R1. It looks like the headlights have been revised and the front bumper given a more polished look.
Few other details are known about the car but it is expected to be available with several different powertrain options. The previous R1 came exclusively with a 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 borrowed from the Corvette and tuned to deliver 525 horsepower. The best part was that the car weighed just 2,645 pounds. Hopefully the R2 builds on the specs of its predecessor.
Sin is based in Munich, Germany, and has worked closely with ProFormance Metals to develop its cars, with the latter primarily responsible for building the lightweight chassis underpinning them. Sin started out building race cars for private customers, usually as rolling chassis, but has decided to expand into the world of turnkey models.
