Zenos Cars has revealed the E10 S for the international markets. It is a more powerful version of the British brand’s E10 sports car.
The E10 S is powered by a mid-mounted 2.0-litre Ford GDTI EcoBoost engine producing 250bhp. In comparison, the standard E10 gets 197bhp from its naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre Ford GDI engine. A range of transmission options are available.
Zenos says the E10 S is capable of covering the 0-100kph sprint in less than 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 217kph. Available in both left- and right-hand-drive, the E10 S keeps the same styling as the standard E10.
Like its sibling, the E10 S is based around an aluminium extrusion and carbon tub construction, which keeps overall weight down and increases torsional rigidity. It gets a track pack, consisting of six-speed transmission, limited-slip differential, Zenos-designed composite seats, four-point racing harness, quick release steering wheel, new wheels, heated driver's seat and adjustable dampers.
The E10 is the first of three models from Zenos to be introduced, in global markets, over the next five years. Also planned is the E11 roadster and E12 coupé, which are due to arrive in 2016 and 2018 respectively. Both will use the same aluminium extrusion structure as the E10.
