Not a lot of people understand the hard work it takes to build a car, let alone one that develops 500 horsepower and hits 200 mph at the drop of a hat. But the people over at Sin Cars understand what it takes to hit these levels of performance. That’s why the company has succeeded in building a special supercar called the R1.
For what it’s worth, the R1 supercar looks like one and performs like one too. It doesn’t boast of the most ostentatious design you’ll see, but it’s got the styling credentials to be looked at as a race-ready machine capable of throwing down with the best of them.
But that’s what makes the R1 impressive: it was made by young designers with plenty of experience in motorsport racing. The combined knowledge and understanding of the industry made this supercar what it is now and that’s a credit to the folks who worked hours on end to see this project through.
Again, the R1 isn’t your typical Ferrari or Lamborghini, but it sure does have that supercar soul and at the end of the day, that’s the ultimate stamp of approval.
A little more than two months after gifting us with a sick program for the McLaren MP4-12C, the folks over at Autodynamica are back at it again. This time it’s delivering a new treat for a fellow exotic: the Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder.
Featuring a comprehensive program that includes a new aero kit from Vorsteiner to go with performance and suspension updates, Autodynamica really went to the well with its aftermarket work on the 458 Italia Spyder.
Obviously, the most distinctive part of the project is the Vorsteiner kit, which we’ll get into later. What really got our juices flowing, though, are the performance and suspension upgrades the aftermarket company did to the 458 Italia Spyder. First, it installed new Akrapovic high flow cats, a titanium valved exhaust, carbon-fiber exhaust tips and KW suspension springs. Also added in were 20- and 21-inch HRE S101 wheels on the on the front and rear, respectively, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires.
That’s not all, though. Autodynamica also gave the Ferrari supercar a new Evomsit Performance software upgrade, resulting in improved power figures to the tune of 609 horsepower, an improvement of almost 40 ponies from the standard model.
Torque numbers weren’t announced, but we expect it to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 460 pound-feet to go with an estimate 0-to-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 204 mph.
