Zenos Expands Lineup With More Potent E10 S and E10 S Track Models

Follow Viknesh

After launching its first product, the E10 track car, at the start of this year, British sports car startup Zenos has now followed up with more potent E10 S and E10 S Track variants. Zenos is the creation of former Caterham managers, and the company’s E10 has already been confirmed for U.S. sale, priced from $39,500.

The new E10 S, if offered here, should add about $8k to that figure for which you get a healthy boost in power over the regular E10. Power in the E10 S comes from the same Ford-sourced 2.0-liter four found in the E10, but a turbocharger lifts output from 200 to 250 horsepower. Torque, meanwhile, virtually doubles, rising from 154 to 295 pound-feet.

Zenos estimates a 0-60 mph time of just 4.0 seconds for the E10 S. By comparison, the E10 needs 4.5 seconds to achieve the same feat. Top speed for both variants is a claimed 135 mph.

In case the E10 and E10 S are still not hardcore enough, Zenos is also offering an E10 S Track variant. As the name suggests, the E10 S Track is based on the E10 S but dons a few additional upgrades aimed at improving lap times.

These include a six-speed manual transmission instead of the standard five-speeder, a limited-slip differential, adjustable Bilstein dampers, a four-point race harness and a quick-release steering wheel. Of course, any of these items can be fitted individually to the regular E10 and E10 S models.

Underpinning all E10 variants is an aluminum central structure to which additional aluminum subframes and a safety cell is added. Double wishbone suspension is used at both ends. Based on this setup, further models are in the pipeline for the next five years including a proper sports car with roadster and coupe variants.
