A small team of car industry professionals joins forces to realize a mutual dream – the creation of a unique hyper car. The team lays out a number of objectives for the project: the car has to be day-to-day drivable, and design and technology should be equally important in its development. Power should exceed 1100 bhp and acceleration from 0-100 km/h should be under 3 seconds.
The prototype is ready for its first road test. Developed in house, the 6.8 litre V8 engine features a unique twin charger system combining super charger and turbo charger. Thus, the model name: ST1. This engine produces continuous torque and an output of 1000 bhp. During test drives the ST1 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds.
Unveiled at the 2009 24-hour Le Mans ‘Drivers parade’, the prototype is nominated for ‘Super car of the year’. Its introduction causes a great stir in the super car industry. In record time, an unknown Danish car manufacturer has achieved what others have spent a decade creating: a hyper car with cutting-edge styling and staggering performance capable of flooring the competition.
After two years of testing and development, Zenvo launches the first series production ST1. Production pushes the car industry’s methods and technology to the very limit to achieve quality and precision of the highest order.
The first car is ready and delivered to the client. The production engine is capable of producing 1104 bhp at 6900 rpm and 1430 Nm of torque at 4500 rpm. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is now 3 seconds. All the original specification targets have been hit.
