Default Video: Zenvo ST1, Danish supercar in action

Back in December 2008, Zenvo Automotive and Danish Design introduced us to the Zenvo ST1, an insanely fast and aggressive looking super car powered by a 7.0L turbocharged and supercharged V8.

Known as the Zenvo ST1, the Danish supercar produces a whopping 1,104-hp with a peak torque of 1,054 lb-ft. 0 to 62 mph comes in under 3 seconds with a top speed of 233 mph.

The duo will only produce 15 units of the ST1, which will be sold to “special approved customers.”

A Denmark publication has just posted a video of their test drive of the Zenvo ST1 crossing Denmark in under 20 minutes.

the car looks really good


i wonder what the point of producing just 15 of these cars is

to develop a car like that must cost a pretty penny, i can't imagine they will make their money back on just 15 cars

can anyone explain the logic behind this? im sure that theres someone smarter than me developing their business plan lol, im just curious

Default Zenvo ST1 V8 supercar




Quote:
What is it?

Zenvo was started by three people who decided to attempt what the likes of Bugatti, Pagani and Koenigsegg had done before them.
The objective, according to company boss Jesper Jensen, was not to build a road rocket that could outdo the Veyron in terms of raw pace (although the claimed figures – 0-62mph in 3.0sec and 233mph max - aren’t too shabby). Instead, the idea was to come up with car that could easily be driven every day, yet which could also double as a track weapon.
The ST1 was initially designed as a rolling chassis, built around a steel backbone with double-wishbone suspension and three-way Öhlins adjustable dampers.
The massive supercharged and turbocharged V8 was positioned longitudinally directly behind the passenger cell, and the armoury of radiators and other ancillaries were then scattered around the car.
Once all the hardware was in place and functioning to their satisfaction, the Zenvo crew called on Danish designer Christian Brandt to pen the contours of the carbonfibre bodyshell.
The car you see here is the prototype, which has clocked up more than 45,000 miles - and isn't looking at all shabby for it.


The V8 motor is roused into action by twisting an ignition knob on the centre console to the right, depressing the clutch and then pressing the start button atop the chunky piston-shaped gearlever while simultaneously giving the gas pedal a generous prod or two. The 7.0-litre motor erupts into life with a raucous bark, but it immediately settles into a civilised idle.
The clutch doesn’t call for Schwarzenegger-esque quadriceps, but slotting the six-speed Ricardo gearbox into first gear (or any other ratio) requires a firm hand. Zenvo technical guru Troels Vollersten explains the gearshift linkages are a bit worn on the prototype car, and that a new set would make for far easier shifting.
The ST1 has three engine modes – normal, sport and race – liberating 650bhp, 850bhp and 1104bhp respectively, and selection of any of these is a mere twist-knob away. Traction control is fully operational in the normal mode, and partially so in sport… but you’re on your own in the full-power race mode.
The seat of my pants tells me even the 650bhp setting will be enough to see off most rivals, provided you’re deft enough with your clutch and gearchange work. This is no Honda S2000-style rifle-bolt gearchange requiring mere flicks of the wrist. Instead you need to manhandle the alloy knob from one ratio to the next as shifts are neither light nor quick (but perhaps the new linkages alluded to earlier would help).
The engine’s power delivery is relatively smooth and progressive – there’s no alarming peaks or troughs – but the blown V8 doesn’t particularly enjoying lugging at low speeds in high gear. This, plus the stubbornness of the manual gearbox, suggests the six-speed paddle-shift sequential – made by Xtrac – will be the better choice for most.
In no-holds-barred 1104bhp mode the ST1 is virtually as quick as anything I’ve ever driven – Bugatti Veyron included. However, where the Bugatti cossets you and insulates you from much of the violence taking place in the engine room, the Zenvo assaults you with an aural and physical battering.
Unleashing the full quota of power is partially achieved by opening up flaps in the exhaust, which means noise levels instantly escalate to conversation-killing levels, and full-throttle gearshifts are accompanied by a slight twitch from the chassis as 1055lb ft of twisting force does its best to unstick the steamroller rear tyres from the bitumen.
The brakes are massive Brembos (380mm at the front and 355mm at the rear), but given that I’m being intensely scrutinised by Vollersten, who’s riding shotgun, I resist the urge to stomp all over them.
Ride quality is somewhere between firm and rock-hard, but the production car will have a choice of three settings – comfort, normal and sport. Vollersten says shock-absorber specialist Öhlins could provide up to 30 settings for their dampers, but this would be just too much choice for most owners.
Should I buy one?

See more Zenvo ST1 pictures
The key question: is the Zenvo special enough to warrant its exorbitant price tag? To be honest, I can’t quite see £750,000 worth of value in the car, but perhaps the lure of being one of only 15 people to own an ST1 will be the clincher for some. Those that miss the boat will have to hold out for the ST2.

+1 Gauge pods definitely look like they were sourced/copied from a Porsche.

I love the exterior!!! Just a wild & crazy design that's unlike anything I've seen before. I felt the same way years ago when Pagani released the Zonda.

most of these 'johnny come lately' supercars need serious work on the interior. That is exactly why they do not last more than the length of these posts. It takes something to make you stand out to last in that market. Something that you can say, I have this, Nobody else does. This is just another boring also-ran. Cars like the Zonda, standout, not just to its crazy styling, that is a given in this market, but because of the way the styling is executed. Cars like the Zonda are have almost a jewelry like quality. Not a fischer price thrown together feel like this car.

I wish I could tell what it looks like. all the wide angle closeups don't give a good sense.
still, its a better looking exterior than many have managed to conceive lately

I'd rather have a Smart ForTwo, its safer and more fuel efficient.

Really awful looking car--a veritable tribute to a lack of imagination. Good thing it is a performer mechanically.

Amen.... I would add cars like the Veyron to that list of supercars that do something different.

It isn't enough just to go fast anymore...

Its just some nut trying to pass off something as a super car and make lots of money buy charging an obscene amount. Supercars of this day and age are far less concerned about ultimate performance than they are about being a fashion icon. They are assessories for rich people.

True performance supercars are in a totally different catagory. Most of these cars cannot out corner a VETTE or a Porsche, who deserve the performance supercar badge.

Just because somebody can learn to tune a megasquirt ECU does not give them permission to call what the build supercars.

Yeah there's million of these hastily developed "supercars" these days. You never see them on the track though so who cares about em. They're on the same level as printing in color...expensive and useless.

I do like the engine package tho.

did they get that steering wheel out of a 1995 Eagle Talon?

seriously. If they are going for the "lean mean race car" supercar, i get why the interior sucks. But if its a lean mean racecar, than why does it have regular 3 point seat belts?

maybe because 99.999 percent of the 5 and 6 pints are not street legal, and 4 points are down right dangerous.

The interior does look that cheap. It seems like it could complete its mission of being a very street-able car yet track ready quite well. And it certainly needs that $1million+ price tag if they are only making 15 production models, they probably all are already spoken for anyway. Very interesting super + turbo charger design on that V8.
