Who doesn't dream of driving a "trackworthy supercar that would be also suitable for everyday use"? With that exact goal in mind, Zenvo Automotive started development of the prototype version of the Zenvo ST1 in 2004. The Zenvo ST1, a Danish supercar whose V8 engine produces more than 1100bhp, will be built in Denmark starting later this year.
Many of its components will come from local suppliers in Denmark and all R&D and design took place in the country. Based on a Corvette Z06, the ST1 is powered by the 7.0-liter V8 engine from the American muscle car, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The supercharged and turbocharged unit has been tuned to produce 1104bhp and 1055lb ft of torque. The carmaker claims an electronically limited top speed of 233mph and an acceleration time from zero to 62mph of 3.0sec.
It weighs only 1376kg due to the use of a lightweight steel spaceframe, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 802bhp per ton. Lightweight carbonfiber panels make up the bodywork.
The ST1 rides on 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch wheels at the rear, with specially designed Michelin tires. It has double-wishbone suspension all round, with adjustable anti-roll bars and three-way adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers.
Zenvo has included a range of creature comforts, including climate control, sat-nav, a head-up display and cruise control. Information on fuel economy or CO2 emission figures have yet to be released.
No pricing has been confirmed as well. It's not like it's up for public consumption anyway since only 15 units will be produced for "specially approved customers."
