With supercar startups coming out of the woodwork, it takes a lot to get attention. Danish company Zenvo Automotive has done just that with the announcement of its newest project, the ST1. With a mid-mounted turbocharged and supercharged 7.0-liter V8 engine, the ST1 puts out an incredible 1,104 horsepower and 1,430Nm of torque funneled through a six-speed manual gearbox. Attention officially granted.
The project was started back in 2004, and the first cars are — optimistically — planned for delivery in 2009. The first performance tests were completed in October and the rear-wheel-drive ST1 is claimed to have reached 100km/h in what we imagine was a traction-limited 3.2 seconds. The run to 193km/h was accomplished in just under nine seconds and the top speed is reported to be an electronically limited 375km/h. So a Veyron/Ultimate Aero/GT9/CCX-killer this is not.
The Zenvo ST1 certainly looks unique, with a very geometric appearance, including boomerang-shaped vents adorning the grille, hood and sides. Nothing quite like it is currently rolling on the roads and with just 15 scheduled for production, prospective owners can count on never seeing one in any parking lot.
