These official design sketches reveal Ex-Caterham boss Ansar Ali's vision for his new Project E10 sports car.
Produced under the Zenos brand, the E10 is based around a Lotus Elise-sized platform, with a Ford-supplied 197bhp 2.0-litre engine mounted in the middle producing 155lb ft of torque. The engine will be mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Altogether, Ali hopes the E10 will weigh 650kg.
The direct-injection engine is a newer generation of the HE420 Duratec unit used by, among others, Caterham. More powerful, supercharged variants of the car are also planned for the future.
The E10's bodywork is built around a single aluminium 'backbone' extrusion with a tub made from carbon composites. Zenos says this style of architecture delivers better torsional rigidity as well as helping to keep the overall weight down - essential for Ali to acheive his goal of a power-to-weight ratio of more than 300bhp per tonne.
Speaking to Autocar, Ali said the car is a "road-legal, but track-focused, step-in two-seater.
