2014 Geneva Motor Show: Zenvo ST1
Zenvo Automotive is currently exhibiting the production-ready ST1 at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The hyper car was seriously criticized by the TV show Top Gear and even during testing, it caught fire. However, this is serious problem even for a manufacturer like Porsche, who had the same issues with the recently announced GT3 RS.
Zenvo ST1 is all about performance. It is powered by a 6.8 liter supercharged and turbocharged V8 - 1,104 HP (812 kW) and 1,430 Nm (1,054 lb-ft). The power is put on the road through a paddle-shift 7-speed gearbox. 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 375 km/h (233 mph). The curb weight is just 1,590kg (3,505 lbs).
The exterior features an aggressive design with wide body and huge air ducts. There are 19" wheels at the front and 20" at the rear fitted with Michelin Super Sport tires. Behind them, a carbon ceramic brake system is housed.
The interior boasts 1990s style, but with some hi-tech goodies like electronically-adjustable racing seats, flat-bottomed steering wheel, carbon fiber trim, GPS navigation, along with a Bose audio system, dual-zone climate control system and a head-up display.
The price of this toy is €803,000.
