Boutique manufacturer Sin Cars has decided to team up with aftermarket specialist Vilner for a special version of the R1 supercar, which debuted this year during the Geneva Motor Show.
The hardcore exterior design pretty much guarantees everyone will notice you, but it seems the R1 550 needed some tweaks for the interior – and Vilner obliged with a massive amount of leather and carbon fiber trim. The interior customization project was done in no more than two months, with Vilner actually starting from the barebone – the R1 was delivered in naked carbon fiber without any trim pieces or other elements. The lightweight material is present virtually everywhere inside, for example on the center tunnel, dashboard, door panels, and even the ceiling.
The sports seats are also made out of carbon fiber, while Vilner and Sin Cars concluded the interior’s quality is now on par with a Pagani, thanks to the addition of two-tone leather and Alcantara. The R1 packs 550 horsepower and 650 Newton-meters (479 pound-feet) of torque thanks to a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine from the Corvette LS7 – all sent to the rear wheels and having to motivate just 1,250 kilograms (2,755 pounds). That of course lends a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint in three and a half seconds, as well as a maximum speed of 186 mph (300 kph).
