The SIN R1 is a mid-engined supercar made by SIN Cars.
The SIN R1 road car is a collaboration between SIN Cars and British supplier ProFormance Metals. Powering the R1 is a Chevrolet-sourced 6.2-litre V8 engine producing 444bhp. SIN says the R1 has a top speed of around 170mph and that it's capable of 0-62mph in just 3.5sec. Officials also claim the R1 is capable of returning up to 24mpg.
The V8 is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, which drives the rear wheels. Paddle-shifted sequential options will be introduced in the future. The car weighs 1,100kg, and uses an FIA-homologated tubular spaceframe chassis. Its aerodynamic bodywork is made of carbon composites.
Other features include bespoke 19-inch alloy wheels, performance brakes, a Formula 1-style FIA-approved fuel tank, adjustable double wishbone suspension and an interior that features carbonfibre trim and two leather sports seats with racing harnesses.
The road-going R1 is the sister car to SIN’s GTB racer, which this year competed in the GT Cup Championship, driven by company boss Rosen Daskalov.
The racing version, which costs £110,000, features unique bodywork and a modified chassis, but Sin officials stress that the road car uses many of the same technologies developed for the racer. A GT4-class Sin car is also in development.
The track-only racing version of the R1 made its debut at the Autosport show in 2013, and made its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. An early prototype model of the road-going R1 was revealed at the Autosport show in January 2014.
For some reason, the R1 and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition have currently switched places with each other in the Garage, although this does not affect the cars in any way other than placement. Logically, the R1 should be placed between the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition.
The R1 has good acceleration, similar to that of the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari. The R1 also has a fairly high top speed; not in the top ten, but possibly in the top 20. The R1's handling, drifting and nitro efficiency is all superb, unlike the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, Hommage, and SLK 55 AMG SE. However, also unlike these cars, its top speed cannot become as high at low ranks. When compared to the Camaro SS and SLK 55 AMG SE, the R1's top speed rank weighting is higher; compared to the Hommage, it is lower. However, even then, the R1's actual speed distribution is quite different to these three cars, with a significant portion stored in nitro. On the other hand, the R1 has a stronger nitro for fewer ranking points when compared to these three cars.
Overall, the R1 can be described as a cheaper but less effective version of the Aston Martin Vulcan, from Class S. The R1 is suitable for Multiplayer at high ranks of around 1500-1700, due to its low starting rank and large Tuning Kit bonus, as well as its good all-around stats.
The R1 has a cosmetic positive speed modifier of around 100.07%. This means that its displayed speed is reduced by a small amount, when compared to its real speed, making it go faster than what is read on the speedometer. However, this doesn't give it any speed advantage whatsoever.
Usage (Multiplayer) Edit
Aside from being worse than the Vulcan, the R1 is still an extremely good Multiplayer Car, capable of reaching Champion League.
The SIN R1 is best used on short/twisty maps, where it can beat the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, and Devel Sixteen Prototype.
- MAX 0500 + PRO 5050 = 1561
- Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 277.9 mph (447.2 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 289.4 mph (465.8 km/h).
- This speed is competitive to some extent, but at the same rank, the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS reaches 311.1 mph (500.7 km/h) at 0505 5050, while the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage reaches 309 mph (497.3 km/h) at 5500 5050.
- The equivalent Vulcan tune is MAX 0500 + PRO 5050 = 1562. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 282.7 mph (455 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 296.6 mph (477.4 km/h).
- The equivalent MP4-25 tune is PRO 10,0,10,0 = 1590.1. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 278.1 mph (447.6 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 289.9 mph (466.6 km/h). (Note: This car has exceptional acceleration)
- MAX 0504 + PRO 5050 = 1605
- The total top speed is 297.5 mph (478.7 km/h).
- This speed is slightly more competitive than the last tune, but again, it's far from the best.
- MAX 0504 + PRO 5555 = 1664
- The total top speed is 303 mph (489 km/h).
- At this point, the R1 is much more competitive. At such a high rank, the Camaro SS, Hommage, and SLK 55 AMG SE don't have as large advantages over the R1. All of these cars are still faster, but the R1 has far superior drifting, acceleration, and nitro efficiency, allowing it to put up a decent fight.
- MAX 0505 + PRO 5555 = 1682
- The total top speed is 306.3 mph (493 km/h).
- This tune is similar to the previous tune. It is the maximum possible speed that the R1 can obtain.
