Zenos E10 - first details and design sketches

Zenos Cars is a new British company founded by ex Caterham managers Ansar Ali and Mark Edwards.

Their first model called E10 will be launched next year with a lightweight monocoque chassis made from carbon fibre and aluminum, aluminium subframes, steel hoops for added safety and an almost entirely removable body.

The E10 will be powered by a Ford-sourced 197bhp 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder unit with 210Nm of torque linked to standard five-speed manual or an optional six-speed gearbox with limited-slip differential.

Following an already proven formula, the E10 is not very powerful, but weighing an impressively low 650kg, it will go from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds, while the top speed is 135mph.

Other highlights include double wishbone front/rear suspension with Bilstein dampers, OZ Racing wheels (16-inch front /17-inch rear), lightweight composite racing seats and LCD screen showing all the data.

The Zenos E10 will be launched in 2014 and there are also plans for an open-top E11 in 2016 and an E12 coupe in 2018.
