Though the Swedish Koenigsegg has paved the way, there's something even more appealingly random about the Zenvo's Danish origins. I mean, what do you know about the place? There's bacon and Copenhagen. Hamlet was a Dane. The 2008 Corruption Perceptions Index rated Denmark as the world's least corrupt country. The more recent Global Peace Index decided it was the second most peaceful country on the planet. Like other Scandinavian countries, it's a model of social justice, a terrific welfare state with a matchless national health service. But the locals pay a hefty 65 per cent basic income tax for the privilege, and a BMW 3-Series costs about 50 grand. Mercedes' modifier Kleeman is the most noted Danish automotive outfit. Eight times Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen is its most famous driver.
