Zenvo ST1 – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Zenvo ST1 and Dartz Kombat are coming the to U.S., both brought to you by Indiana importer Red Sea Distribution. The Danish-made coupe will set you back $1,225,000. That price might seem steep for a dressed-up Corvette boutique, mid-engined coupe from a nation not known for supercars. However, underneath that fiendishly gorgeous body there's a 7.0-liter Corvette V8 that's been upgraded to a twin-charged, 1,104-horsepower monster that'll get you to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds. And they're only making 15 of them per year.

The Dartz Kombat comes in at a much more palatable $225,000, and while you can't get that whale foreskin interior anymore, you can get all kinds of amour and perhaps even armament that will protect you from, well, everything bar a direct asteroid hit. You can check them both out in the gallery of high-res photos below, and figure out your ordering preferences after reading the press releases post-jump. Hat tip to Alexis

      That is ugly as SIN. Who the f@#k would pay even $1,225 for THAT..?!

      i'm assuming that "twin charged" means twin turbos. good job editing.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @glockelvis
        No they are correct this thing is twin charged which is the term when a car has both a supercharger and a turbo or two.

      I don't like many 4x4s but that thing is so OTT that it kind of works. Has an alternate universe vibe to it.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Outrageous and good looking at the same time. Perfect! Very pricey though!
      • 4 Years Ago
      $1.2M for an unproven, no history, non-heritaged startup? yeahhhh.. rightttt...

      Does anyone proofread articles before they are published on the web? This article wasn't even given a casual look by an editor before it was thrown up. I especially like "everything bar a direct asteroid hit."

      1.2 Mil for a car that looks the way this one does? Why not pluck down your hard earned cash for the Koeniggsegg(spelling?), a much more organic, seemingly better engineered and definitely better looking car? Or as just auctioned in the Barrett Jackson show a few months ago, you could pick up the outlandish Bugatti Veyron for a mere 700K, a true bargain!
      I think the Swiss are betting on the old saying: "There's a sucker born every minute" for their clientele.
      Heck, if you wanted your vette to have 1,100 ponies, just go see some of Americas beat aftermarket tuners and have your vette tuned that way for mere pennies on the dollar, and you could too make the same 0-60 and top speed claims.

      You know I like it.......plenty of places on the car to grate my parma cheese for my linguini alla putanesca ......
      • 4 Years Ago
      Anyone who buys this will just reinforce what I've known for a long time.


      There's a sucker born every minute.

      Hahaha, $1.2 gigawhat?

      I have this car for sale for 2 million dollars. It can only be seen by the most elite and important of person and will appear invisible to anyone else not worthy.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Meh, I'd sooner buy 5 Corvettes and use the leftover to build a hotel in the Domican Republic.

      Is that a plastic "mesh" under those headlights? Looks bad... And the gaps between the panels and bumper look too wide.
