"This Car Can Drive Across Denmark in About 18 Minutes"
December 17th, 2008 1:50 PM Share
The Zenvo ST1 hits 60 mph in 3 seconds flat and tops out at 233 mph, thanks to its 7 liter turbo- and supercharged V8. This “100 percent Danish,” 1104 hp, RWD beast is hand-built, and features a six-speed manual transmission and a hydraulic limited-slip differential. Nobody knows what it costs.

NickR, I think we can probably wander without interrupting too many people. Sorry I missed the PRI show this year, or I would probably have a really good answer for you. I really haven't had the need to explore that one lately, but just some rules that separate the pros from the hacks. If they do forced induction of any stripe - twinscrew, turbos, centrifugal, god forbid Rootes - make sure that they have the following tools... Wideband O2 sensor(s) Data Logging Dyno Temp sensors for intake air temp pre and post intercooler The ability to either reflash ECUs or install a standalone system. If they don't use every single one of those tools (at BARE minimum)to develop a system, run, don't walk away. If they don't know what those tools are, they are primates, operating by raw guesswork. You will pay the price for guesswork. If you really want to learn a good chunk of how things are to be done if your want your ride to be reliable, read either one of Corky Bell's books on forced induction. Horsepower worth paying for is pretty much always force induction. You can pick up 25-50 HP or more with a normally aspirated powerplant, but it generally takes a fair amount of work to do it right, or you will have to make some compromises in drivability, noise, powerband, mileage, something.
@toadroller Works for me.
Which part of Denmark? It consists of a peninsula and three islands. The car looks good from the A-pillar back, but I'm not so sure about the front.
I think it looks like a VW Scirocco with Wings.
