Denmark produces its own supercar, Zenvo ST1

Scandinavians are skilled producers of supercars. Koenigsegg, for example, has created a world record breaker, CCR, a vehicle that had its very own engine. Zenvo Automotive, on the other hand, seems to be less independent and to have fewer fundings, once it has chosen to use Chevrolet Corvette Z06 powerplant, LS7, to push its car ahead, but it has added a powerful recipe to it: a turbocharger and a supercharger. The result has been named ST1 (S for supercharger, T for turbocharger and 1 because the car is Zenvo's first creation).

ST1 is 4.67 m long, 2.04 m wide, 1.20 m tall and has a wheelbase of 3.06 m. This good-looking piece of engineering also weighs 1,398 kg and has a tiny boot compartment, with only 130 l, but the real concern is the size of the fuel tank, which holds only 69 l. After all, feeding a 7 litre V8 engine that produces 1,104 bhp at 6,900 rpm and 1,430 Nm at 4.500 rpm must not be an easy task.

Zenvo's first vehicle will have a very limited production. Only 15 ST1 will be produced from 2009 on, what shall set its price and exclusiveness free to go as high as they should. All that with the promise of a gentle behavior in daily use. If you believe a car that reaches 375 km/h (top speed is electronically limited) and which sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 s can behave well in regular streets, you might try to buy yours and used it to take your kids to school. At least they would have as much fun as you.
