One of the most beautiful and fastest super car ever – The Zenvo ST1

The Zenvo ST1 is not well known to the general population who are not in love with fast cars, especially super cars. They are no longer calling cars like the Bugatti Veyron Super sport and the Zenvo just super cars, they have coined the term Hyper-cars to distinguish them from other supercars. If cars had god’s hyper cars would be the Gods, supercars the demi-gods and luxury cars the royalty and the privileged.

Talk about elitist, there are only 15 of these beauties available and they are manufactured by Danish company Zenvo Automotive which was only founded in 2004. It was about time someone not from, Germany, Italy, Britain, or America made a car that challenged for the world’s fastest car. Only a few road cars can g0 from 0-60mph in less than 3 second and have more than 1000hp and the Zenvo ST1 is one of those select few.

The Zenvo ST1 has a 7litre V8 engine which is both Turbo and supercharged. It produces 1.104 horsepower and 1.430Nm of torque. This beauty has a top speed of 233mph and can go from 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds. Like other hyper-cars this baby does not come cheap, it is as exclusive as it gets at a base price of $ 1 225 000, the cost of the US based model is $ 1.8million which includes a free watch worth $50 000, plus the US model  has 1250hp compared to the other models sold elsewhere which only have 1104hp.

The Danish have done an outstanding job, both in performance and design, it is not often that such a fast powerful car looks so beautiful, just look at the ultimate aero, it is ugly but superfast. This just shows that you do not need to sacrifice looks for performance; this reminds me of another super car manufacturer that makes beautiful powerful cars Aston Martin.

World’s fastest car competition –The Rise of the Hennessy Venom GT

The Hennessy Venom GT  is the next challenger for the world’s fastest car spot, this car is futuristic and looks as if it comes from a super hero movie. It looks so cool it could have been used as the Bat-mobile.

The Hennessy Venom GT has a top speed of 260mph just 7mph short of the tested speed of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which is 267mph set in Germany in 2010. The Hennessy Venom Gt is faster than the two previous fastest cars in the world which are the SSC Ultimate Aero which became the world’s fastest car in 2007 with a tested top speed of 257mph and the Bugatti Veyron before that which had a top speed of 253mph.

The Hennessy Venom is currently tied at 2nd place as the world second fastest car with the Koenigsegg Agera R which also has a tested top speed of 260mph. The competition has never been so close there are so many cars gunning for that top spot now and all of them within reach. With proper tuning and modification and an excellent driver, speed records are going to be shattered in the next few years.

The Hennessy is powered by a 6.2l turbocharged V8 twin-turbo engine, which produces 1200hp. It goes from 0-6omph in 2.5 seconds. It costs $950 000 so it is definitely not cheap, no super car comes cheap especially one vying for the world fastest car title. Some people believe that the Hennessy actually can go faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super sport, but before we can say that we are going to wait for the proof.

The Venom Gt is based on a modified Lotus Exige Chassis and the engine used in the Venom Gt is the same one used in the Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1. It is manufactured by Hennessy Performance Engineering. And its design was first revealed in March of 2010.

Transportation through the years - technology is moving forward so fast

I was thinking today, it must have taken crazy men to think of all this stuff that is around us, but I'm especially fascinated by how transportation has changed through the years and at such an alarming rate. The human mind is the most powerful tool/weapon I tell you. Popular transportation mediums change all the time, from the days when walking was our way of going from place to place to this day when humans have been to space and we can travel safely across oceans within hours to places we would have never even known of their existence. The world is so connected now, some of these advancements in the speed of transportation have their disadvantages and have changed how the world operates and does business.

 They have changed the way wars are fought, the more technology and transport improves the more the weapons associated with those modes of transport improve as well, we are in the middle of the best years in technology, technology is improving at a pace like never before, but we are in the most dangerous period in our history where it is so easy for nations to cause massive destruction within minutes, which is why it is important to try and keep the world as peaceful as possible.

 Oh I was going a bit off topic there, I actually wanted to share some pictures to look down memory lane and see where we humans have been and where we are going in terms of modes of transport:


horses for transport

olden day ships
Battle ship

big wheel bicycle
first few bicycles

the rail way system
First kind of trains

old classic cars
First cars

bikes back in the day
First motorcycle

crash and burn
first aeroplane

man going to the moon
first rocket launch

I wonder where we are going next, since all these modes of transportation were invented they have since been significantly improved. Maybe the next thing will be a big mother-ship that will be able to take a large number of the population in search of a planet that is like ours..well who knows. Until then I shall admire what we have now, there is so much to be thankful here in the world, so much to explore so many different places to see. Why do we waste time fighting when we should be exploring this beautiful world we live in.
