The Zenvo ST1 is a brutal machine, with more insane engineering details than anyone can fit into an 800-word review. Here are a few shots of the awesome bits and pieces hidden away inside the crazy Danish styling.
Let's start with the engine. This is a massive pushrod V8, apparently designed around a GM LSX block. Chief boffin Troels Vollertsen says the Zenvo's version has larger oil channels, dry sump lubrication and motorsports-grade crank, rods, forged pistons and flywheel. That, plus an aluminum block.
Here's some of the plumbing for the single supercharger and single turbocharger setup. Zenvo CEO and co-founder Jesper Jensen says that twincharging was a priority for the ST1 from the very beginning of development.
It's hard to get a sense of the (insert name of supercar here) in pictures, says every auto writer ever. Here's a good look at the curves going on at the rear of the Zenvo, lit up by Zenvo's staff Denali parked behind.
There's a lot of three-dimensionality going on.
A peek at some plumbing at the front of the engine.
The Zenvo ST1 is built on a steel chassis with carbon-fiber body panels. Here's some of the carbon fiber on the rear three quarter panels, underneath the engine cover.
If you're curious, here's what the Zenvo pedals look like. No manual for the ST1. Instead, there's the same Cima transaxle as in Koenigsegg and Pagani cars. So yeah, it's a six-speed dual-clutch thing.
It is indeed hard to get a sense of how wide the Zenvo really is. Just look at how much carbon fiber it takes to clear the front wheels, let alone past the front ducts and get to the fitted luggage compartment.
Nice fans in those ducts, too.
Here's a glance at the front fender vent, getting a look at the curves of the bodywork lit up by crosstown traffic on 58th street in midtown Manhattan.
The front fenders really jut out on the car, giving it a trademark of aggression.
I'm sure Zenvo had a fun time getting these taillights federalized for US sale.
