The sharp lines are connected by muscular organic surfacing creating dramatic reflections. The front is designed around the hexagonal trademark Zenvo grille flanked by the large front air intakes used for brake cooling and housing the front light. The theme of the front is repeated in the rear which is designed around the big diffuser necessary for high speed stability and down force. As on the front the center volume is flanked by large air exits extracting hot engine air as well as housing the exhausts and rear lights. The rear spoiler, mandatory for a car capable of extreme high speeds, is partly integrated. It has a unique aerodynamic design following the raked shape of the rear end.

The ST1 is powered by a turbocharged and supercharged (yes you can do both, crazy Danes) 7.0-liter V8 that delivers 1,104 hp and 1055 lbs ft. of torque. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in about three seconds and a top speed goes up to 233 mph.

The automobile has a unique aerodynamics design. Even if it is a powerful car, still its easy to handle. It meets the desire of having a purposeful and at the same time a practical car.

What can you expect on a supercar that have 1,104 hp? I don’t want to argue about the speed because the sprint time on 0 to 60 mph is in 3 seconds. Well there are supercars that can beat that but it’s very minimal to see this kind of vehicle nowadays and even the setup is that good.
