Zenvo news - SuperTurboTastic - 2009

If you are - as the Zenvo ST1 claims to be - Denmark’s first supercar, you want to do the job properly. Uphold national pride and all that.

Which is why, if you are Denmark’s first supercar, you should not limit yourself to either a turbocharger or a supercharger. If you are Denmark’s first supercar, you need both.

You need 1,104bhp of supercharged, turbocharged 7.0-litre V8 nestling in the middle of an angular, over-the-top lump of supercar.

Yes, 1,104bhp. That’s what Zenvo Automotive, the Danish demons behind the ST1, claim to have squeezed from the Corvette-derived engine, which can run on standard petrol or E85 biofuel.

All that power batters the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox, though Zenvo says it is working on a flappy-paddle transmission that can deal with the monstrous torque. Good luck, gents.

Zenvo plans to build just 15 ST1s, but has not yet announced a price. We’re guessing this means they’ll be Really Really Cheap. Yep, definitely cheap…
