Who would have imagined that such a car would come from such a non-car place. Denmark might be a fantastic country to live in, with its low crime rates and very uncorrupt government, but nobody could have dreamed of them making a supercar, let alone a machine with 1104 horsepower.
That power number puts the newZenvo ST1 in the same ranks as the Bugatti Veyron and the Koenigsegg CCXR . Amazingly, many have still not heard of this brilliant machine. The concept has been around for a decade and it finally got the green light for production in 2005. In those five years, not many news stories have been published around the ST1. Somebody needs to hire a new marketing team.
Creating that massive amount of power is a 7.0-liter supercharged V8 that will put out 103 more horsepower than the Veyron and 1,050 pound-feet of torque. The top speed is limited to 233 miles per hour and it’ll hit 60mph in just three seconds. Only fifteen ST1 examples will be made for the wealthy people that can afford to pay the $1.125 million price tag.
UPDATE 10/20/2010: This article has been updated with the US bound ST1.
