Supercar startup companies are becoming more common, so it takes a lot to stand out of the crowd. Danish company Zenvo Automotive has done just that with the announcement of its newest project, the ST1. Packing a mid-mounted turbocharged and supercharged 7.0-liter V8 engine (donor unknown), the ST1 puts out a reckless 1,104 horsepower and channels it through a six-speed manual gearbox.

The project began back in 2004, and the first cars are planned for delivery in 2009. The first performance tests were completed in October and the rear-wheel-drive ST1 is claimed to have reached 100 kph in just 3.2 seconds. The run to 200 was accomplished in just under nine seconds.

The Zenvo ST1 certainly looks unique, with its sharp-angled appearance, including boomerang-shaped vents along the grille, hood and sides. Nothing quite like it is currently on the roads and with just 15 scheduled for production, it seems unlikely we will see any down here in NZ. Perhaps we need our own supercar startup company.
