Click above for a high-res gallery of the Zenvo ST1

With supercar startups coming out of the woodwork, it takes a lot to get our attention. Danish company Zenvo Automotive has done just that with the announcement of its newest project, the ST1. With a mid-mounted turbocharged and supercharged 7.0-liter V8 engine (perhaps from Chevrolet?), the ST1 puts out an incredible 1,104 horsepower and funnels it through a six-speed manual gearbox. Attention officially granted.

The project was started back in 2004, and the first cars are -- optimistically -- planned for delivery in 2009. The first performance tests were completed in October and the rear-wheel-drive ST1 is claimed to have reached 62 mph in what we imagine was a traction-limited 3.2 seconds. The run to 120 was accomplished in just under nine seconds and the top speed is reported to be an electronically limited 233 mph. So a Veyron/Ultimate Aero/GT9/CCX-killer this is not.

The Zenvo ST1 certainly looks unique, with a very geometric appearance, including boomerang-shaped vents adorning the grille, hood and sides. Nothing quite like it is currently rolling on the roads and with just 15 scheduled for production, prospective owners can count on never seeing one in the Whole Foods parking lot. Thanks for the tip, Andy!

      I love cars. always have. This thing is just dumb considering the times we live in. As your cover car, it renders autoblog irrelevant. Grow up.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Your comment renders you irrelevant. Some people like ridiculously fast cars. Maybe you should grow up and learn to appreciate the variety of cars available today.

      This is the most beautiful car I have ever seen! A true Supercar! WooooW!!! To me it looks like a mixture of the new Maserati GT and the Enzo! Whatever inspired them to design this, this got to be the most beautiful design since the Ferrari Testarossa! I think Toyota should buy this company outright and make this car their new Supra! With their quality engineering and this design, they may pull off perhaps the best supercar to date!

      Very menacing, and has very good performance numbers.

      Will there be an ST2? I'm excited about this new company and maybe, just maybe, they'll establish themself like Pagani and Koenigsegg as a maker of truly insane automobiles.

      I like it. Most interesting-looking supercar since the McLaren F1.

      Looks to me like the Mitsubishi Double Shotz from the HotWheels design challenge.

        He's right. Winner.

      Looks like an abused catfish. Even has the black eye to match.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah it's not ugly, just different.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I think it's because the grill in the front is too deep into the body. If the body were cut down a little so that the front grill was flush with the body work it would look less like the mouth of a catfish. And while I don't think it's ugly I understand where you're coming from

        I'm more inclined to think it's a cross between the lines of a Maserati GT and the sharp angles of a Nissan GTR
      • 6 Years Ago
      Those lines are insanely good looking. Not sure about the headlight area, but the rest is really aggressive and well carved.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looking good!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hot Damn! This thing is wild...makes a first gen Viper look like a Camry! I'm not sure I can wrap my head around it to be honest. Although I find the roofline to be a bit GTR-ish from some angles, and I detest the GTR's roofline. Other than that though, very unique.
