The U.S. market will soon be getting the ST-1 50S, a special edition “mighty Zenvo ST-1” from Danish supercar maker Zenvo Automotive. Red Sea Distribution, Zenvo’s US distributor, helped develop the special edition car. It boasts of numerous changes compared to the standard car such as a power increase of 144bhp from 1089bhp to 1233bhp.
Torque has also increased from 1055lb ft to 1106lb ft. The special edition is powered by Zenvo’s own 7.0-litre supercharged and turbocharged V8 petrol engine that had been coupled to a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
Zenvo said that the ST-1 50S has a 0-62mph acceleration time of under 3.0sec. It also has a limited top speed of 233mph. It features individual monogrammed seats and it is offered with an exclusive complimentary, Swiss-made Aspen Zenvo watch that’s valued at £30,000.
Only three samples of the supercar will be built. One gets an Intense Red color, the second is Crystal White, and the third is Mediterranean Blue. Each of them gets a set of magnesium wheels and a special edition plaque that has the signatures of the engineers and owners. The Zenvo ST-1 50S has a starting price of $1.8 million (£1.1 million) plus local taxes.
Designers at hermann & brandt design consultancy were specifically instructed by Zenvo to design a supercar that does not look like other supercars. hermann & brandt designed the Zenvo ST1 to blend supercar styling with race car elements to allow it to appropriately express its excessive power and performance.
As intended, the shape of the Zenvo ST1’s wheel arches, side line, the roof line and the lower side air intake are defined by free flowing accelerating lines as linked by muscular organic surfacing. This surfacing is contrasted by a racecar-inspired lower carbon splitter. On the front end, the new Zenvo ST1 is marked by a hexagonal trademark Zenvo grille bordered on the sides by the large front air intakes for cooling the engine and brakes. These air intakes are raked back not only to minimize drag but also to make the sides of the car more compact visually.
This frontal theme is evident on the rear, which is marked by a large diffuser for high speed stability as well as flanking large air exits that also accommodate the exhaust and rear lights. Meanwhile, the ST1’s rear spoiler is partly integrated in the rear wing, featuring a distinct aerodynamic design that follows the raked shape of the car’s rear end.
