Currently reading: 1163bhp Zenvo TS1 GT anniversary model revealed
To celebrate its 10th year, Danish supercar maker Zenvo has produced a 250mph model that's priced from around £1 million

This is the Zenvo TS1 GT 10th Anniversary, a Danish supercar that's been built to mark its maker's 10th year.

On display at the Geneva motor show, the carbon-bodied, rear-wheel drive, mid-engined two-seater produces 1163bhp from its flat-plane crankshaft twin-supercharged 5.8-litre V8.

Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a quick-shifting gearbox with helical-cut gears. Cogs are swapped in 40 milliseconds. The car's top speed is 250mph.

The car is an extensive redesign of the original Zenvo ST1, first shown at the Le Mans supercar parade In 2009. It is priced from close to £1 million.

"The TS1 GT begins a whole new era for Zenvo," said veteran British supercar specialist Nigel Gordon-Stewart, Zenvo's commercial director, who joined the company recently after serving at McLaren, Lamborghini and Lotus.

"It's a Phoenix car for us, literally. We've built a new factory on the Danish island of Zealand, our prototypes have been in Lapland testing a revolutionary new traction control system, and we'll soon announce details of a new dealer network in Europe, the UK and the US, designed to meet the needs of customers who are already waiting for our cars."

According to Gordon-Stewart, there is a continuing strong demand for big-power supercars like the latest Zenvo TS1 GT, which features a revolutionary "instant shift" manual gearchange. However, the company is preparing for the future by developing a hybrid EV, understood to draw on much of the car's existing hardware. 

Zenvo, whose original prototype made an infamous TV debut by catching fire during early tests, is on the point of establishing an advisory board of supercar experts  - a plan once used by Lotus - which is understood to include the McLaren F1 designer Peter Stevens, a long-time associate of Gordon-Stewart.

The Zenvo ST1 packs a 1104bhp 7.0-litre V8, and it might be the first car to make Denmark synonymous with supercars

Steve Cropley is the oldest of Autocar’s editorial team, or the most experienced if you want to be polite about it. He joined over 30 years ago, and has driven many cars and interviewed many people in half a century in the business. 

Cropley, who regards himself as the magazine’s “long stop”, has seen many changes since Autocar was a print-only affair, but claims that in such a fast moving environment he has little appetite for looking back. 

He has been surprised and delighted by the generous reception afforded the My Week In Cars podcast he makes with long suffering colleague Matt Prior, and calls it the most enjoyable part of his working week.

Hopefully... Zenvo this time round can make it by convincing customers to buy its supercharged, turbocharged supercar.

I wonder how many customers

I wonder how many customers have already had delivery of a Zenvo car. Using the word 'Phoenix' suggests the past decade has not quite been as successful as they might have hoped.
