Official: Zenos E10 S

The production ready 2015 Zenos E10 S has just been unveiled at the Autosport International 2015 event in the U.K. Official details about the potent sports car were revealed last September but the production-spec model brings with it a number of updates.

Most importantly, Zenos has revealed the windscreen for the E10 S which is also available without a windscreen to provide even more extreme and back-to-basics driving. From a powertrain perspective, the 2015 Zenos E10 S is powered by a mid-mounted 2.0-litre Ford GDTI EcoBoost engine delivering a total of 250 hp. This represents a 53 hp gain over the standard Zenos E10 and its naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre engine.

Thanks to the extra power, the Zenos E10 S can reach 100 km/h in under 4.5 seconds and a top speed of around 217 km/h. For owners looking for even more power and fun, the optional track pack has been created. It sees the inclusion of a six-speed manual transmission, limited-slip differential, new lightweight composite racing seats, a quick release steering wheel, four-point racing harness and different wheels along with adjustable dampers.

Underpinning the Zenos E10 S is the same platform as the regular E10. This architecture combines aluminium and carbon fibre and can support the E10 S being either left hand drive or right hand drive.
