The Beginning

Functionalistic and immediately aesthetically iconic, the Zenvo ST1 was developed over six years. It was the first incarnation of the Zenvo brand in a unique hypercar and featured a unique twin charger system combining a super charger and a turbo charger – hence the model name ST1.

Unveiled at the 24-hour Le Mans ‘Drivers Parade’ in 2009, the ST1 prototype was nominated as ‘Super Car of the Year’. Its introduction caused a great stir in the hypercar world and Zenvo – at the time an unknown Danish car manufacturer –achieved in record time what others spend a decade creating: a hypercar with cutting-edge styling and a staggering performance.

A supercharged and turbocharged twin charging engine was a way in which the low-down power could be delivered and yet retain an increased boost as the revs built. The supercharger provided the initial power while the turbocharger increased power at higher revs. But this wasn’t the optimum solution for us. The ST1 led to the three TS-model options of today.
