No need to worry if you can’t afford a million dollar Pagani. Instead of the Italian version, get your Pagani-like wheels from Bulgarian supercar-maker Sin Cars. Their latest creation, 2017 Sin R1 not only packs Pagani-like power, it comes with interiors from fellow Bulgarian auto industry leader Vilner.
Even though Vilner is well known through out the world for its aftermarket work, they were not Sin Car’s first choice. For years automaker worked with another Bulgarian firm to bring interiors to life. However, they have decided to go with Vilner for their latest creation, and perhaps for all their future models as well.
The work Vilner did for Sin R1 had a bit of urgency as Sin Car gave them just over a month to have the car prepared for the 87th Geneva International Motor Show. As always they were up to the task and started to fill in the exposed carbon frame with foam, leather, and Alcantara.
Everything from the dashboard, central tunnel, door covers, ceiling and the seats are made from carbon composite. Vilner designers spent quite a bit of time on planning and finding best ways to achieve their design goal, along the way they found out seats are the most difficult to work with. They completed the task with flying colors – end result includes comfortable and attractive seats, a floor covered in Alcantara as well as carbon fiber inserts and leather clad steering wheel.
Everything from the electric powered steering wheel to seats and center console features fiery red – in leather or Alcantara. There is plenty of contrast red stitching in the cockpit. No denying that the two companies are very proud of their country – they have inserted red, white and green carbon fiber pieces to the dashboard to make a discreet Bulgarian flag. The Sin R1 is a street racer, means it needs better protection like the five-point red harness. Imitation is the best form of flattery – Vilner used bolts engraved with Sin Cars, just like Pagani have them on Zondas and Huayra.
This street-legal 2017 Sin R1 supercar is powered by a 7.0-litre V8 engine with a 550hp output and 650 Nm. It goes from 0-62mphin 3.2 seconds and possesses a 186mph top speed. According to reports, the affordable supercar costs about $250,000 – not a bad deal at all. Visit Vilner to see more of their work.
