As we stated before, the Zenvo ST1 has come a long way. The research and development for the first prototype started in 2004. The prototype has been completed and was presented for a public audience for the first time at Le Mans 24 hour race this year. Today more information has been unveiled.
Zenvo Automotive starts a series production of the Zenvo ST1. It will be limited to only 15 cars. S in the name stands for Supercharger, T for Turbo and 1 for model number one. The whole ST1, including the steel space frame and carbon body are 100% built in Denmark as is the design.
The power is supplied by a 7,0 liter V8 engine with both a supercharger and a turbo produces 1,104bhp. Zenvo states that it gives the vehicle the character of a normal aspirated engine but much more powerful. The engine is a Bio Flex engine. It can run on normal unleaded 98 (RON) or on Bio fuel (E85) or both combined. The car is standard delivered with a manual six- speed gearbox which is specially developed to handle the enormous torque and power. A paddle shift solution is also available.
Inside the Zenvo ST1 you will find some decent options such as an A/C, build-in navigation and DVD system using a 7½-inch screen. You can also connect the rear view camera to make reversing easy. The audio system serves as a basis for your iPod, MP3 player, CDs or radio. The racing seats are both electrical adjustable, as is the steering wheel.
The key-less go system let’s you leave the parking spot without turning a key. Simply press the “start engine” button. A head up display gives a perfect overview of the driving information. Two airbags are build-in for extra protection and safety. Other systems are a cruise control and automatically locking the doors after you have left the car.
I tell ya if I could drive that thing on a regular highway, I’m sure it’d be quite satisfying.
it looks hot .. unfortunately the pics dont reveal too much on the outside of the car. also, how many horses does it produce? damn I am thinking about buying it :P
I read somewhere, around 1104 HP, very nice :)
I wonder the top speed of this beast since it has much power than veyron
I have the answer to that question to :),
0-100 km/h 3 sec, top speed is 375 km/h (233 mph), but it’s electronically limited
It’s probably limited to 223 mph because they don’t have the right tyres. The Veyron is using specially built Michelins than are good for 2,500 miles only and cost $25,000 a set.
Audi R8 mated with a maserati MC12
1430Nm of torque!!!
It’s actually 1055 lb-ft(Nm) of torque… And
Power-to-Weight Ratio is 802 bhp/ton, so it will be very very quick
I’m seeing design cues from the MC-12, Murcielago and 599 GTB. Not reinventing the wheel just using the best part of the wheel to make a really wheel. How about some pics of the ass end though?
Theres a few more pictures of the car here if anyones interested:
