The Zenvo supercar is big news since last night's Top Gear episode. Clarkson tested an orange example of Denmark's first supercar on the the famous test track. It crashed, broke down twice and even caught fire, which is I think a first. Once it was fixed (a bunch of times), the mighty 1100 hp supercar only managed to set a 1:30 lap, making it a little slower than a Ford Focus ST hot hatch, partly due to wet track conditions.
This Zenvo is not orange and it's not on fire, so it's the perfect car to show you what a pristine example looks like, both inside and out. I'm not a big fan of these cottage-built rarities which are supposedly faster than light, but rarely deliver. However, the ST1 shows genuine out-of-the-box thinking.

Considering it's a $1,225,000 oddball, we're not surprised to see a good level of attention to detail. Responsible for the car’s aggressive design are Christian Brandt and Jesper Hermann who own the car design consultancy Hermann&Brandt and were in charge with the Zenvo ST1 supercar project.

Supercar spotter Shmee does a great job of taking us though all the details on the car. The interior is pretty nice, with its digital displays and buttons for all the driving modes, but we struggle to understand why anybody would ever overlook all the Ferrari, Lambos and Paganis to buy the relatively unknown Danish supercar.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
