The co-founders of the Zenvo ST-1 Jesper Jensen, Troels Vollertsen and Lasse Stenkilde set out to build a car that would make an impact on the supercar world, but they never knew that the Zenvo ST-1 would reach these heights. Vollertsen is the engineering brains of the operation, a motorsport specialist with a track record in saloon car racing, rallying and rallycross. He's also a tuner with a strong reputation and client base in the Middle East. Jensen is an IT genius and entrepreneur, who sold his company at the right time and made some money. Vollertsen had already squeezed 640bhp from Jensen's AMG Merc CLS 55, and went to work persuading him to collaborate on his dream of building a sports car.
Vollersten told Top Gear, "I said to Jesper, ‘You've sold your company, so why not do something funny like build your own car?' He replied, ‘Come on, we'll never be able to do that.' Pagani and Koenigsegg have done it, I told him, so why not? Though we never thought we'd end up in this league when we started out..."

The engine's owes some thanks to the Corvette. Being a 16 valve, 7.0-litre V8, similar to the Corvette ZO6. Zenvo's claims to have designed its own power unit. "GM does a thing called an LSX block," Vollertsen says, "but it's steel so it was too heavy. We took its dimensions and did our own aluminium version. It has bigger oil channels, and dry sump lubrication. The crank, rods, forged pistons, flywheel are all our own design. So really, it's our own engine."
The Zenvo ST-1 is supercharged and turbocharged! It's using the familiar screw-type Eaton supercharger and exhaust gas-driven Garrett turbocharger. The supercharger improves the engine's flexibility lowdown, though it runs at 0.4 bar continuously. The turbo keeps things kicking at the top end, running boost pressure at 1.4 bar in maximum attack mode. All of which makes for an impressively linear torque curve. Oh, and an earth-moving 1,053lb ft of the stuff at 4,500rpm. And 1100bhp at 6,900rpm. The Zenvo ST-1 boasts three driving modes: Wet, Sport and Race, which dishes out power by altering boost and exhaust mapping. Everyday driving mode is set at 650bhp with race mode set at 1,1100bhp.
The Zenvo ST-1 and 50S have made some real waves in the supercar world. With it's blistering 1,100bhp, the Zenvo ST-1 will surely have a mainstay in the supercar world for years to come!
