Whenever a new supercar is mentioned the first thing we do is compare it to the Bugatti Veyron, and this latest rival is no exception. The Zenvo ST1 50S has two things going for it when compared to the Volkswagen made vehicle, and that is its power. The former offers 1250HP, while the latter can only muster 1184 horsepower.
However, it is not all about how powerful the engine is, that is only part of it – so does the new ST1 have what it takes? Now the one thing that has been sticking in my mind is how this new version is $575,000 more than the current ST1. Cannot see that you are paying all that extra cash just for the sake of a Zenvo Aspen watch, which will be given to you with your supercar purchase.
The Zenvo ST1 50S is a special edition model for the U.S. market only, and we all know how they love that loud grunt from the engine. Speaking of the engine, what you get is a 7.0-liter V8, which has twin turbochargers mounted to it. The roar will be loud, but let us hope that it will be a whimper if the Veyron manages to fly right by.
The price of the Zenvo ST1 50S is expected to be $1.8 million, which seem very cheap when compared to $2.4 million for the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. According to World Car Fans the top speed of the new ST1 is 375kph, which is 233mph, which is 20mph slower than the SS.
