In this video we recently came across on StreetFire, we have yet another fine example of a niche market supercar that features a potent version of the LS7 (only hopefully this one will leave out all the nuttiness of the Mosler GTR…). In the video, Forbes Magazine interviews Bobby Kahn of Emporio Motor Group about the new Zenvo ST1 50S supercar out of Denmark. The car’s aggressively styled body is made mostly from carbon fiber, right down to the door seals. As with most other supercars, cargo capacity isn’t exactly its strong point. Besides one small passenger, the only other object that can be carried in the car is an overnight bag – and not just any overnight bag, but one that is specifically designed to fit in the Zenvo’s minute “trunk” and is included with the purchase of the car.
The ST1’s mid-mounted, fully built LS7 is both turbo’ed and supercharged. That’s right – the Zenvo gets its atmosphere compressed twice and pours out a mean 1,250 horsepower that can propel the featherweight car from zero to sixty in under three seconds. Best of all, the ST1’s traction control can be completely disabled – meaning lots of tail slidin’ good times.
Only three will be made available in the United States, and there will only be 15 made for the entire world. The base price for the ST1 is 1.8 million large, and you can expect to pay even more for whatever special options you might decide to have the Danes tack on (perhaps an extra over-night bag in case you lose your first one?).
