Its raw danish Power as the Zenvo ST1 powered by a 7.0-litre V8 engine pumping out 1100b bhp. According to Zenvo the ST1 is not only meant to raise your heart beat but a “trackworthy supercar that would be also suitable for everyday use”.
I hear you say that it looks a little bit like a Corvette z06...well although the R&D and design work took place in Denmark, the ST1 is actually based on the American Muscle Car. It even share the same engine which was supercharged and turbocharged unit has been tuned to produce 1104bhp and 1055lb ft of torque.
The ST1 top speed is electronically limited top speed of 233mph and can get from 0-62mph in a claimed 3.0sec. It weighs 1376kg thanks to the use of a lightweight steel spaceframe, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 802bhp per tonne. The bodywork is made up of lightweight carbonfibre panels. It has double-wishbone suspension all round, with adjustable anti-roll bars and three-way adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers. Do note that the front wheel is 19-inch but the rear ones are larger at 20-inch.
The Car which is going to be hand-built in Denmark will feature a comprehensive range of creature comfort technology such as climate control, sat-nav, a head-up display and cruise control. No fuel economy of CO2 emission figures have been released. ( If you can afford such a car, I suppose the price of fuel & road tax would not be a big issue.)
According to Autocar, there will only be 15 units built and get this...Zenvo chooses to whom they will sell the car too. To put it in their own words “specially approved customers”.So eventhough you have 850,000 euro (£770,000) to spare they might still put you through an interview session to judge your worthiness.
