I’ve never seen this car before. What’s a Sin R1? The R1 550 is the first road car from Sin Cars. The company is based in Ruse, Bulgaria, and it was founded by Bulgarian businessman and racing driver Rosen Daskalov. It’s a relatively lightweight two-seater supercar with a mid-mounted V8. It’s Bulgaria’s first ever homegrown car. The Eastern European country has been home to a small number of foreign-owned car factories over the years, mostly building cheap and slightly grim family cars and commercial vehicles. But the arrival of Sin Cars means Bulgaria now has its very own supercar company. Actually, Sin Cars does ring a bell… It should do. The company was first launched in the UK back in 2012. Daskalov was working with a British business partner at the time, but after a number of disagreements they went their separate ways. Daskalov moved the company back to his hometown and continued developing the R1.
