1. Zenvo ST1
Lastly, there’s the Zenvo ST1, a high-performance hypercar from Denmark. Yes, Denmark!
It’s not the lightest exotic out there at 3,721 lbs, but it does sport a hand-built 6.8-liter V8 engine with 1,104 hp and 1,055 lb-ft of torque thanks to a supercharger and turbocharger. Acceleration from 0-62 mph takes place in three seconds flat and has its power brought to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission with F1-style paddle shifters. The Zenvo ST1 made its world premiere at the Dubai International Motor Show last year, raising eyebrows among show goers and the media. At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, it was presented to Europe for the first time and we can’t help but wonder if we’ll ever see it on North American soil.
It’s understandable if you’ve never heard of the brand Zenvo. Founded in 2007, the company built its first prototype in 2008 and unveiled it in 2009 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans drivers parade.
