Zenvo Automotive may not have the prestige like that of the Bugatti or a Corvette but the Danish car maker aims to join the ranks of these marques with their Zenvo ST1. The ST1 derives the DNA of its engine from the Corvette Z06.
The ST on its tag explains it all. The 7.0L engine will be supercharged and turbocharged to squeeze out an amazing 1,104 horsepower and a torque of 1055 poun-feet. The figures double the output of the LS7 stock engine.
The power of the engine is transferred to its wheels by a six-speed manual transmission system. The bi-fuel setup powerplant can zoom from 0 to 60 mph in a blink of 3.0 seconds and reach a lightning speed of 233mph.
The Zenvo ST1 designers used steel space frame for the bones of the car and laid down carbon fiber for its shell. It is also set up with an adjustable stabilizers and shocks, and double-wishbone suspension. The car gets 19 inch Michelin tires in front while a bigger 20 inch rolls at the rear.
Zenvo will only 15 units of this speed monster. The cars are all hand-built and the sticker price for the Zenvo ST1 is expected to start at $1,275,000.
With its looks and the power under its hood, the Danish beast can really give the Ferrari and Lamborghini a fierce fight as a poster car. The recently unveiled Arash AF-10 may also look a little weak when you look at the price-performance numbers.
