As previously revealed, the E10 is powered by a 2.0 litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated engine producing 145kW and 210Nm, coupled to a standard five-speed or optional six-speed manual transmission.
Carbon and aluminium are used to construct the body, with steel used to make the roll hoops. The front and rear wings are removable, and the whole package weighs just 650kg.
Thanks to the E10’s lightweight construction, Zenos is claiming a zero to 100km/h sprint time of 4.5 seconds, with a top speed top speed of 216km/h.
Interior features include lightweight composite seats, a multi-function LCD driver display and probably not much else, as even the heater is optional.
Further options include limited-slip diff, racing harnesses, full roll cage, premium paint, upgraded wheels and a combination of options called ‘track pack’.
To commemorate the launch of its first-ever model, Zenos will release a special ‘Launch Edition’ of the E10, priced from £28,995 (AU$53,775) in the UK.
The E10 has already been well-received, with 200 pre-orders received via the company’s website.
Zenos Cars is the brainchild of former Caterham bosses Ansar Ali and Mark Edwards, who brought Caterham’s lightweight philosophies to their new venture.
Zenos is also working on two other models at present – the E11 and the E12 – believed to be a roadster and coupe version of the E10.
Little else is known about those models at this stage, although they are scheduled for an unveiling in 2018.
