Zenvo? Really?


Got a spare $1.8 million laying around? Want some serious exclusivity?

How about a Zenvo?

While it may sound like a carnival magician (Zenvo the Magnificant!), it’s a car. Well, actually, it’s a supercar. Designed and 100% built in Denmark. (You know, when I think supercars, I think Denmark.) Supposedly it goes 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 233 mph. That would put it 7th fastest on Supercars.org’s top ten list. And it’s from Denmark.

The exclusive part? They’re only building 15. That makes the Bugatti Veyron owners club (all 300 of them) look like Denny’s on free Grand Slam breakfast day: a packed house.

Interestingly, they’re not trying to knock the Veyron off the top of the fastest cars list. The company claims its goal is to build a supercar that you can drive every day. It has three different driving modes: normal, sport and race. You get either 650bhp, 850bhp or 1104bhp depending on your mood and courage.

But is it worth $1.8 million? I guess you’ll have to ask the guy who ends up number 16 on the list. Will it be deep regrets, or great relief when he doesn’t get one?

By the way, the name Zenvo came from combining the names of the two people who started the company: Jesper Jensen and Troels Vollertsen. I can only assume that Zs and Js are the same thing in Denmark.

Incidentally, the car is on a tour of the US this month. I guess their failure to show up at my house has something to do with a lost address…

Check out video of the car.
